Veal escalope with cream and mushrooms

A veal escalope with cream and mushrooms is the best thing to do when we are in a hurry or we run out of ideas. We just need to be careful regarding the amount of cream you use because after all we do not need to use much cream to make something good! Furthermore, the variation with wine and thyme makes this dish more French and it’s very good even if it’s simple and suitable for a diet!

In two words:

"A day announces this truth to another day ; and a night brings this knowledge to another night".

Base Recipe

  • 1 veal escalope 140gr
  • 3 portobello mushrooms of medium size
  • 1 medium size clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 2 pinches of fleur de sel  or coarse salt
  • 7 turn mills of Kampot black pepper

Option #1

  • 25ml of white wine
  • ¼ teaspoon of thyme


  • Bash well the escalope with your fists or a rolling ping
  • Peel and slice the garlic in very small cubes
  • Peel the mushrooms and slice them in medium to fine slices
  • Heat-up a pan
  • Once it’s hot, add the olive oil
  • Stir in the garlic
  • Once the garlic is a bit brown, add the mushrooms
  • Stir them in and once they’ve lost their crunchiness, take them out of heat along with the garlic
  • Add the escalope and cook it on each side by turn it over and over quite frequently
  • Once it’s almost done, add the mushrooms and stir everything together
  • (at this point you can, if you like, move down to steps for option #1)
  • Add the cream and stir everything together
  • Add salt and pepper, stir one last time and keep turning and returning the escalope in order to absorb the seasoning
  • Enjoy :-)


Option #1

  • Pour in the wine and sprinkle the thyme; wait until the alcohol evaporates a bit
  • Turn the escalope again and again in order to absorb as much as of the wine as possible and to help the thyme to cover it well all over
  • (go back to continue the recipe as above)
