Low Carb Veal Picatta is not so unlike a Veal/Pork/Chicken/Schnitzel ala Holstein except the picatta is not dredged in peanut flour or served with an egg on top. Somewhere on this site I said my last veal supply had dried up and to their credit Zupan’s, here in Portland does carry it so now I can get it as needed and thanks you Zupan’s Market. Veal is so very expensive and I have never understood why as it didn’t used to be. I know, it is gotten from (baby male) milk fed calves and a lot of people, for some reason, find this off-putting. We slaughter all kinds of animals, including baby lambs, and people don’t seem to have a problem with that so why veal? I don’t know the answer but I do know it is divine eating. The picture shown was being served with Caramelized Zucchini and it’s easy to see that I love capers. With all this said, you can also use chicken. We all know chicken picatta is good-it’s just not as good as veal.
