Scottish Collops

A collop is an escalope, the thick slice of meat off the bone that is cut across the grain. Collops may be of beef, lamb or venison, as well as veal and should always be flattened before use.

4 servings
1 hour 20 mins prep

4 veal ( or other meat ) escalopes, each weighing approx. 4 to 6 oz
1 1/2 ounces butter
1 small onions, chopped
3/4 cup dry white wine
1 pint ( 2 cups )veal stock or chicken stock
1 medium finely minced mushrooms
2 teaspoons ketchup, mixed with the mushroom
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons plain flour
1 pinch ground mace


crisp rolls (bacon flavour, if you can find them)
fried button mushrooms
lemon twist
parsley sprigs

Flatten each escalope between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper with a rolling pin or meat mallet.
Melt 1 oz.
of the butter in a large frying pan, add the escalopes and cook for 2 minutes on each side.
Transfer to a serving plate and keep hot.
Add the onion to the pan and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened.
Stir in the wine and boil until almost evaporated.
Stir in the stock, mushroom ketchup and lemon juice.
Bring to the boil and simmer until the liquid has been reduced by about 50%.
Work the flour into the remaining butter, then gradually whisk into the stock to thicken slightly.
Stir in the mace.
Arrange the collops, overlapping each other, on the serving dish and spoon some sauce down the centre.
Garnish with crisp rolls, mushrooms, lemon twists and parsley.
Serve remaining sauce separately.

One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.

He that keeps not his arms in time of peace will have none in time of war.
