Recipe ingredients and directions:

1/4 cup finely chopped shallot

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 teaspoon dried sage, crumbled

2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 pound fresh shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, caps sliced

1/4 pound white mushrooms, sliced

3/4 cup dry white wine

1/2 pound veal scallops (each about 1/8 inch thick)

flour seasoned with salt and pepper for dredging

2/3 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves (preferably flat-leafed)

In a heavy skillet cook the shallot, the garlic, and the sage in

1 tablespoon of the oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until

the shallot is softened, add the mushrooms and salt and pepper to

taste, and cook the mixture over moderate heat, stirring, until

the mushrooms are tender and all the liquid they give off is

evaporated. Add 1/4 cup of the wine, simmer it until it is evaporated,

and transfer the mixture to a bowl.

Dredge the veal in the seasoned flour, shaking off the excess. In

the skillet, cleaned, heat the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil over

moderately high heat until it is hot but not smoking and in it saut

the veal for 1 minute on each side, or until it is golden. Transfer

the veal to a platter and keep it warm.

Add the remaining 1/2 cup wine to the skillet and deglaze the

skillet over moderately high heat, stirring and scraping up the

brown bits, until the wine is reduced to glaze. Add the broth, boil

the liquid until it is reduced by half, and stir in the cream, the

mushroom mixture, and salt and pepper to taste.

Simmer the sauce until it is thickened slightly, stir in the parsley,

and pour the sauce over the veal. Serves 2
