Valentine's Day recipe: beer veal rolls
Have you and your partner decided to celebrate Valentine's Day at home, enjoying your favorite dishes in the calm of your home? Here's an idea for an entrée that's light, tasty, and quick to prepare: veal scaloppine rolls simmered in beer stuffed with ham and fontina cheese!
Beer veal rolls: Ingredients for 2 people
- 8 veal (or chicken) cutlets
- 8 slices of fontina cheese
- 4 thin slices of ham
- half a glass of light beer (e.g., lager or pale ale)
- bay leaves (to taste)
- flour (as needed)
- salt (to taste)
- pepper (to taste)
Pound the cutlets on a cutting board until thin. Fill with half a slice of ham and a slice of fontina cheese. Roll each cutlet up like a jellyroll, secure them with a toothpick, and then roll them in the flour.
In a shallow non-stick pan, heat a drizzle of oil with a bay leaf. When the oil is hot, place the rolls in the pan and brown well on all sides. Add half a glass of light beer, and let the rolls cook for about 15 minutes over medium heat.
When the pan juices begin to thicken, season with salt and pepper, transfer the rolls to a plate and serve the dish alongside a good glass of still white wine.
Beer veal rolls: what to serve as a side dish?
To keep the meal light, we suggest a simple salad or boiled and sautéed broccoli as the perfect side dish. Carrots, peas, and potatoes also pair well with this dish.
