Veal Duxelle

Veal Duxelle


1 shallot or 2 small green onions
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 cup beef broth
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon white wine
1/2 teaspoon chopped parsley
3 tablespoons cream cheese
8 portions thinly sliced veal round steak
1 beaten egg
Fine bread crumbs


Finely chop 1 shallot or 2 small green onions. Saute in 2 tablespoons butter until transparent. Add 1/2 pound mushrooms, coarsely chopped, and saute until lightly browned. Stir in 1 teaspoon cornstarch. Add 1/4 cup beef broth, and cook and stir until mixture boils thoroughly and is thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste, 1 tablespoon white wine and 1/2 teaspoon chopped parsley. Cool. Soften 3 tablespoons cream cheese, and gradually blend in mushroom mixture. Chill thoroughly. Divide into 8 portions. Pound out 8 portions thinly sliced veal round steak to make the meat very thin. Place a portion of mushroom filling on center of each veal steak. Fold meat over filling to enclose it completely. Chill thoroughly. Flour meat lightly. Dip first in lightly beaten egg, then in fine dry bread crumbs. Brown on both sides in about 1/4 inch hot shortening. Place in a shallow baking pan. Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) for 20 to 25 minutes. 

Serve with Sauce Madere. 

Makes 8 servings.
