Sometimes called veal Marsala, this is the classic Italian dish made with thinly sliced veal scaloppine. A recipe typical of Sicily, where the best Marsala comes from. Serve with plenty of bread to mop up the sauce.

  • Melt butter with olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until it starts to foam. Add veal; cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Season with salt. Transfer veal to a plate. Cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.

  • Pour Marsala wine into the same skillet. Stir to scrape up browned bits from the bottom of the skillet, about 2 minutes.

  • Stir water and cornstarch together in a small bowl until cornstarch dissolves. Stir into the Marsala wine in the skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.

  • Return veal to the skillet; cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and serve topped with sauce.

As written I have to give this recipe 4 stars. Be sure to get a dry Marsala wine. We added some sliced mushrooms and the dry Marsala and then it becomes 5 star.
