Serves 4


  • 8 ea Veal Cutlets, 2oz
  • ¼ cup Butter, unsalted (divided)
  • 2 Tbsn Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Flour, A/P
  • 1-1/2 tsp Salt, Kosher  (divided)
  • 1-1/2 tsp White Pepper   (divided)

  • 1 pint Mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ cup Dry White Wine
  • ¼ cup Green Onion, chopped
  • ½ LB Jumbo Lump Crabmeat
  • 1 cup Hollandaise Sauce


  1. Lay veal out on a sturdy firm surface between two layers of plastic wrap or inside a large Ziploc bag a few at a time.  With a mallet (or iron skillet if you don’t have one) pound each piece to a uniform thinness taking care not to tear the meat.
  2. Sprinkle 1 tsp of the salt and pepper over all the cutlets.
  3. In a shallow pan, mix the flour with the creole seasoning until incorporated.
  4. Heat a large iron skillet or acceptable alternative over med-high heat till very hot but not smoking.  Place the olive oil and 2 Tbsp of the butter in the pan and reduce to medium heat.
  5. Dredge the seasoned cutlets through the seasoned flour then place in the hot oil mixture and cook about 3 min per side or until desired temperature is reached.
  6. Remove veal from the pan and set aside.
  7. Drain off almost all of the remaining oil from the pan except about a Tbsp, saving the bits at the bottom.
  8. Increase heat to med-high and add 1 Tbsp butter and the mushroom to the same pan and cook for about 5 min until soft and most of the liquid is gone.
  9. Add the wine, green onions and remaining ½ tsp of salt and pepper and cook for about another 5 minutes.  Add crabmeat, stir gently and turn off heat.
  10. Place 2 pieces of veal on 4 service plates and top each plate evenly with crab-mushroom mixture.
  11. Spoon 2 Tbsp hollandaise over each plate.  Serve immediately.
