Veal Collops in Mushroom Marsala Sauce
Submitted by: Cathie
Found in a tin of old Yankee recipes!
1 1/2 pounds veal stew pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoon butter
1 large onion, quartered and sliced thin
1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced (optional)
1 can condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
2/3 cup marsala
1 tablespoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon thyme
Brown half the veal in a large heavy pan over high heat, using half of the oil and butter. Stir and turn constantly, cooking only enough to sear the meat. Transfer to a large bowl and repeat with remaining veal and adding butter and oil as needed. Remove meat.
In same pan, saute' sliced onion over medium heat until well softened. Add optional mushrooms. Continue cooking for several minutes until liquid is mostly evaporated.
In a small bowl, blend cream of mushroom soup with marsala, paprika, salt, pepper, and thyme and stir until smooth.
Add veal to cooked onions and pour sauce over all. Bring to a simmer stirring to mix evenly. Cover pan loosely to permit slow evaporation. Turn heat down to very low and let mixture bubble gently for at least an hour, turning collops once or twice. Veal should be tender and the liquid reduced to a finished sauce.
Serve with fluffy white rice and a green vegetable. Serves 4.
