Veal Oscar

I remember when I had just graduated high school and my family went out for a fancy meal we went to a place called Anton’s in Gross Pointe.  I remember having a dish called Veal Oscar.  This was the first time I had ever had an upscale meal.(my dads idea of an upscale meal was Milio’s on 11 mile.). Veal has fallen out of favor over the year maybe it was the “South Park Big eyed baby cow episode.”  It  could just be how they were treated in years gone by .  I haven’t seen this dish in 10 years I stayed classic but added a couple of wrinkles.  Hope you like it.

I was forced to use veal chops which I salted and peppered and pounded with flour
