Veal Roulade with Pine Nuts and California Golden Raisins

Submitted by: Olivier Dubreuil

Raisins and nuts fill scaloppini with flavor.


  • Serving Size: 2 rolls


  • 1 1/4 cups California golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 3 walnuts, chopped
  • 6 slice white bread
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 slice bacon, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon four spices (quatre-épices), divided
  • Salt and pepper
  • 24 veal scaloppina (about 3 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 carrot, medium finely chopped
  • 2 onions, medium finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Bay leaves
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 cup chicken stock


Soak raisins in water overnight and drain. Roast pine nuts and walnuts in a dry sautépan. Break white bread into small pieces and soak in milk. Chop bacon and sauté. Set aside. Squeeze as much milk from bread as possible; mix bread with bacon, egg, drained raisins, toasted nuts, 2 pinches of four spices, salt and pepper. Divide and spread mixture over slices of veal. Roll tightly and secure with a short skewer or toothpick. Place rolls in a sautépan with butter and sear lightly. Add carrots, onions, garlic and bay leaves to pan. Sauté for 5 minutes. Stir in wine and reduce by half. Add chicken stock and a bit of water, if necessary. Cook, covered, over medium for 20 minutes, turning rolls frequently. Remove rolls to tray, and reduce sauce by half; pour over rolls.

Note: Cook rolls slowly to avoid drying the meat.
