Veal Scaloppine with Ruby Red Grapefruit

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2010


  • 2 Ruby Red grapefruits
  • 8 veal cutlets (about 2 ounces each), thinly pounded
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons safflower oil
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh chives


  1. Cut peel and pith from grapefruit. Slice fruit along membranes to release segments into a medium bowl. Squeeze juice from membranes into a small bowl; discard membranes.

  2. Pat veal dry with paper towels; season with 1 teaspoon
    salt and some pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter, and
    heat until just starting to brown. Cook 4 cutlets until golden
    brown, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a platter; cover
    to keep warm. Repeat with remaining tablespoon oil, 1 tablespoon
    butter, and remaining cutlets.

  3. Add remaining 6 tablespoons butter to pan. Cook, scraping
    brown bits with a wooden spoon, until deep golden brown.
    Reduce heat to low. Swirl in reserved grapefruit juice. Season
    with salt and pepper. Return veal to pan to heat through. Add
    grapefruit segments. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with chives.
