VEAL PAILLARDS WITH LEMON BUTTER

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 2 teaspoons capers, drained and minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 thinly sliced veal top round steaks, 115g to 140g each
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

METHOD

  • In a small bowl combine the butter ingredients. Using the back of a fork, mix the butter well until smooth and creamy. Set aside at room temperature so the butter stays soft.
  • Place the veal steaks between two large pieces of plastic wrap. Then, using the flat side of a wooden mallet, pound the steaks to an even thickness of about 1/2cm.
  • Brush or spray the veal with oil and season with the salt and pepper. Grill over direct high heat (230°C to 290°C), with the lid closed as much as possible, for 1 to 2 minutes, turning once. Transfer to warm plates and spoon the butter over the top. Serve immediately.
