My Mom tried from an early age to get me in the kitchen, I always resisted. I am at the ripe old age of 39 and it has been in the past years I realize I can cook and kinda like it~ I was in the mood yesterday to make a yummy meal using two recipes from two of my favorite people. The first is a recipe created by my dear sweet Dad. He went Morel mushroom hunting every year in Michigan with his buddies. To showcase these tasty treats he came up with a wonderful recipe. Everyone in the family makes it and we all have different versions, here is mine.
4 thin slices of veal~ if your not a fan chicken is good too
Fresh or dried Morels~ you can substitute any mushroom variety. Because Morels dried and fresh are expensive I use a dried and fresh variety of shitake mushrooms.
a nice bottle of chardonnay~ for drinking and of course the recipe. Might I suggest a
Garlic~ as much as you like, my brother adds way too much.
First tenderize and drench your veal in flour, brown in a skillet.
In the skillet add veal and chardonnay~ I usual add a cup and maybe more, its all in your taste, squeeze in half a lemon, half a bottle of capers(again more if you like), mushrooms and garlic(as much as you like) I don't add any I am not a fan. Now if you head over to my brother Jay's you will stink for a week~Stirring get this liquid to a thicker consistency, like a sauce or gravy. Once your done serve with pasta drenched in butter and Parmesan cheese.
The last addition was from my favorite Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa. I am a huge fan, it is good she lives so far away I would probably be a stalker. I recently found this 3 disc set at Target for 15.99, I love it.
I made a bib and tomato salad with her Creamy Mustard Vinaigrette. I am so addicted it is scrumptious. Because champagne vinegar is hard to fine, white wine vinegar is a good substitute. May I suggest cutting a tomato up and marinating in the Vinaigrette, it is so good~
