Shiitake with Veal

(Gluten-free when using gluten-free pasta)


  • 1 pound boneless veal, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1/2 cup shallots, sliced

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp sherry (optional)

  • 4 tbsp low-fat sour cream

  • 2 tbsp parsley, thyme, or other herb, chopped

  • 4 cups cooked farfalle or other chunky pasta (or gluten-free pasta, if desired)


Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and brown veal quickly. Add shallots, stirring until wilted. Add shiitake mushrooms and sherry (if using).

Reduce heat, cover, and cook 5 minutes, or until mushrooms release moisture. Turn off and stir in sour cream and herbs.

Serve with noodles (gluten-free, if desired). Spinach would be a good side dish with this recipe.
