scraping in any browned bits clinging to the bottom and sides of the pan.

10. Return the veal to the frying pan. Arrange lemon slices on top.

Cover the pan with lid.

11. Simmer over a low heat and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until the veal is tender when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife.

12. Transfer the escalopes in a heated dish.

13. Surround the dish with lemon slices.

14. Add the rest of the beef stock to the juices in the pan.

15. Boil briskly until the stock is reduced to a syrupy glaze.

16. Add the lemon juice and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

17. Remove the pan from the heat. Swirl in 1 oz. of soft butter.
