1 Beat the escalopes until flat.

2 Heat 50 g (2 oz) (1/4 cup) butter in a frying pan (skillet) and gently fry the veal until golden-brown.
Remove and keep warm.
3 Fry the garlic and shallot for 2-3 minutes, than add the ver mouth, tomato paste and chopped tomato.
Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle in the oregano.
Bring to the boil, stirring well, then simmer for about 10 minutes.
4 Heat the remaining butter in another pan and saute the mushrooms until golden.
5 Arrange the escalopes in a serving dish and pour over the sauce.
