Tangerine Veal Medallions

A bright, tasty citrus sauce matches perfectly with veal, especially in this easy sauté. If you like, spike the dish with a few dashes of bottled red pepper sauce. In any case, serve it with wilted chard or steamed asparagus.

Serves 4

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.


  • 2 tablespoon pink peppercorns, crushed, or 1 tablespoon black peppercorns, crushed
  • 1 pound boneless veal loin, trimmed and cut into eight 1/2-inch-thick medallions
  • Salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1 cup tangerine juice, or orange juice
  • 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 2 scallions, chopped

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Press peppercorns into both sides of veal medallions. (They will not completely coat the veal.) Season with salt.

Step 2

Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the veal and cook until golden outside and faintly pink inside, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

Step 3

Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until softened, about 1 minute. Add juice, vinegar and tomato paste. Bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Cook until the liquid is reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Stir in scallions and any accumulated juices from the veal. Season with salt. Divide the veal among 4 plates and top with the sauce. Serve immediately.
