  • 6 veal leg steaks
  • 6 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 125g butter
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 6 thin lemon slices


Place veal steaks between 2 pieces of cling wrap and beat until very thin.

Dust veal in plain flour.

In a frying pan heat the olive oil and fry the veal steaks until cooked on both sides. They will take around 2 mins due to being so thin. Set aside in a warm place.

Heat the same frying pan and add the wine to deglaze the pan. Bring to the boil and add the lemon juice and butter and whisk together.

Return to the boil and pour over veal steaks on serving plates. Top each steak with lemon slices. Serve with steamed vegetables.
