Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup Onion, finely chopped
½ cup Mushrooms, finely chopped
9 tablespoons Unsalted butter
1 cup Dry bread crumbs, fine
1 teaspoon Basil, crumbled
6 Veal cutlets, about 1/4-inch hick
½ cup White veal stock
½ cup Tomato puree
2 tablespoons Paprika
Buttered noodles for accompa iment
1 cup Sour cream

Flatten the cutlets between two pieces of plastic wrap. In a heavy skillet, cook ½ cup of the onion and mushrooms in 6 Tbsp butter over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the onion is golden.

Stir in bread crumbs, basil, salt and pepper to taste. Let the filling cool. Divide the filling among the cutlets and fold in the long sides of each cutlet ½-inch. Roll up the cutlets and tie them at each end. In a large heavy skillet, heat 2 Tbsp butter over mod-high heat. Brown the veal birds, patted dry, and transfer them to a bowl as they are browned. In the skillet, cook the remaining onions in 1 Tbsp butter over moderate heat, stirring, until golden. Stir in stock, tomato puree, and the paprika. Add the veal birds and any accumulation of juices. Simmer the mixture, covered, for 15-20 minutes or until the veal is tender. Arrange the noodles on a platter, remove strings from the veal, and transfer the veal birds to the platter. Whisk the sour cream with salt and pepper to taste into the skillet contents. Cook sauce until it is hot, stirring occasionally. Do not let it boil. Serve alongside the meat and noodles in a boat. a 1959 Gourmet Mag. favorite
