To make the scallopini with mushrooms, cut the top round veal into slices 1, then pound them with a meat tenderizer to make them thinner 2, flour the veal slices on both sides 3 and then shake them to remove the excess flour.
Now clean the mushrooms : using a sharp knife with a smooth blade begin by removing the earthy part on the stalk, scraping it gently until all traces of soil are removed 4. If the mushroom is clean enough, remove the scant earth residue with a brush 5 or a cotton cloth, do not wash them with water to avoid ruining them. Slice the mushrooms 6 and set them aside.
Now start cooking the meat: in a pan melt half the butter (1.75 tbsp or 25 gr) adding the olive oil 7; once melted, add the floured veal slices, salt and pepper 8 and brown them 3 minutes per side 9 or until the crust forms.
Once they are well browned, leave them to cool on a plate 10 and finish preparing the mushrooms: in the same pan you cooked the meat in, melt the other half of the butter, season with the whole clove of garlic and the chopped rosemary 11, add the sliced mushrooms 12 and sauté over medium heat for two minutes, then salt and pepper to taste.
At this point, add the browned slices of veal and set aside 13 and flavor with thyme leaves 14, let it absorb the flavor over low heat for a minute, adding a ladle of water if necessary, and serve the scallopini with mushrooms hot 15!
We recommend keeping the scallopini with mushrooms in the refrigerator, closed in an airtight container, for a couple of days at most. You can freeze them if you used fresh ingredients.
If you want a creamier sauce, you can blend half of the cooked mushrooms and then mix them with the others to make a delicious creamy gravy in which to dip your bread!
