Ontario Veal & Barley Risotto

Yield: 12 servings Weight Measure Directions
Butter, divided


¼ cup (60 mL)

In large deep skillet, heat half of the butter and oil over medium high heat. Season the scaloppini with the salt and pepper and cook, in 2 batches, just until golden on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to cutting board and slice.

Olive oil, divided   ¼ cup (60 mL)

Veal Scaloppini


About 2lb (1 kg) ½ cup (125 mL)

1 tsp (5 mL)
1 tsp (5 mL)

Butter, divided   ¼ cup (50 mL)

In same skillet, melt 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the butter. Cook shallots, until translucent and tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and cook until golden and no liquid remains, about 10 minutes.

Stir in barley, until each piece is coated with butter, about 1 minute. Stir in garlic and cook one minute.

Pour in wine, scraping any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Add in stock, about ½ cup (125 mL) at a time, stirring often, until almost all the liquid has been absorbed before adding more hot stock and continuing the process. During the last addition, the barley should be tender but still al dente and sauce should be creamy. Stir in remaining butter, Parmesan, sliced veal and any of the accumulated juices.

Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately in warmed soup plates with fresh cracked pepper.
