Veal scallopine recipe is usually listed capers as an ingredients, but i can’t find any of it. That’s what i replace capers with green peppercorn. You could use either fresh or dried green peppercorn for this recipe, but the dried should be soaked to rehydrated prior to cooking. I had a jar of pickled green peppercorn that i preserved before when i get a bunch of fresh green peppercorn. Pickled green peppercorn is got a refeshing fruity and tangy flavour that burst when you bite and pop out the peppercorn in the mouth. It’s like chewing caviar sensation, superb!

Scaloppina di Vitello con Funghi e Pepe Verde (Veal Scalloppine with Porcini, Almond Mushrooms and Green Peppercorn

Scaloppina di Vitello con Funghi e Pepe Verde is the Italian name for this mushrooms and green peppercorn veal scallopine. I’m using three kind of mushrooms; porcini or cepes mushrooms, almond or brazilian mushrooms and shiiitake mushrooms. Since i’m using the dried stage, i need to rehydrate it by soaking in water prior to cooking, then using the soaking liquid to flavoured the broth. The combo of those mushrooms blended and infused to the veal that actually got a mild beefy flavour. Some people like to add sweet marsala wine into the dish, but i using regular white wine. White wine is added to the pan once the meat is removed to deglaze the pan and make a light brown sauce. Other common liquid ingredients added within scalloppine recipe is lemon juice, tomato juice or heavy cream, but i’m only add the heavy cream. Beside,vary range of veggies is commonly add to scalloppine too, including carrot, bell peper, fennel  or celery stalk.

Perfectly cooked veal scalloppine is got a very crunchy and yet tender flesh. I’ll share some of the tips for cooking the veal cutlet, commonly veal scalloppine recipe instruct the reader to prepounding the veal cutlet before cooking. Then i’ve made a little experiment to proved that, i sauteed pre-pounded or pre-flatenned veal and compare it with the unprepounded, i found that the one without prepounding  got a scallop-like texture, a blend of bounhy, crunchy and yet tender or easy to chew. Veal tenderloin itself is a very tender cut, that’s why the prepounding step is not necessary. The texture of prepounded veal lose the crunchy and bounchy texture, almost like a chicken breast, and i guess i won’t paid a lot for veal. That’s why i highly recomended not to prepounding the veal tenderloin before cooking if the thickness is less than 1 cm. Ather secret of making a delicious veal scalloppine always spiced up the  flour for dredging with a few Italian herbs, salt and pepper.

Easy Pumpkin Risotto with Almond Mushrooms & Black Olives Recipe

pumpkin risotto recipe making squash risotto

Easy Pumpkin Risotto with Almond Mushrooms Recipe


Pumpkin risotto is one of the famous veggies- based risotto variety. Pumpkin is suits  for making risotto becauce it had a sweet, creamy and buttery taste. You can use any kinds of pumkin or squash to make risotto, but i recomend to use Australian Butternut or Japanese kabocha pumpkin because the dish color would be velvety orange. I like to use pumpkin chuncks and pumpkin puree to make a real pumpkin risotto. For making a pumpkin puree, you can either boilling, steaming or even roasting it with  foil and let it cooled before processing into smooth puree. Pay attention for the pumpkin chunck size because too small chunck will turn into a soggy overcooked pumpkin chunck and too big will lead into overcooked risotto rice. This pumpkin risotto is a great vegan version of risotto, the other meat-based risotto that i’ve posted is Milanese Risotto with Saffron Yoghurt Roasted Ribs, and Arròs Negre. I add some Brazillian Mushroom or Almond Mushrooms and chinese sausage or lap cheung because i can’t find any bacon in the supermarket.

Butternut Pumpkin Risotto with Almond Mushrooms and Kalamata Olives

Risotto is an Italian rice dishes that cooked into a creamy consistency. The broth may be based on  meat, fish, or veggies. Many types of risotto contain butter, wine and onion. It is one of the most common ways of cooking rice in Italy. There are many different risotto recipes with different ingredients, but they are all based on rice of an appropriate variety cooked in a standard procedure. Short grain rice will suits for making risotto because it’s cook faster than the long grain. Soaking the rice  for about 30 minutes prior to cooking will make it cook easier. Sauteeing the rice with oil or butter will make the starch losen up while cooking the risotto and make it it cooked faster even more.

Quick and Easy Pumpkin Risotto

The rice is first cooked briefly in a soffritto of onion and butter or olive oil to coat each grain in a film of fat, called tostatura; white wine is added and has to be absorbed by the grains. When it has evaporated, the heat is raised to medium high and very hot stock is gradually added in small amounts while stirring gently, almost constantly: stirring loosens the starch molecules from the outside of the rice grains into the surrounding liquid, creating a smooth creamy-textured liquid. At that point it is taken off the heat for the mantecatura when diced cold butter is vigorously stirred in to make the texture as creamy and smooth as possible. It may be removed from the heat a few minutes earlier, and left to cook with its residual heat.

Butternut Pumpkin/Squash Risotto

Perfectly cooked risotto is rich and creamy but still al dente, or got a bite-resistance in the middle, but i prefer it throughly cooked. The traditional texture is fairly fluid, or all’onda (“wavy, or flowing in waves”). It is served on flat dishes and it should easily spread out but not have excess watery liquid around the perimeter. It must be eaten at once as it continues to cook in its own heat and can become too dry with the grains too soft.
