Saltimbocca alla Romana - Chef Sabrina Mancin

Saltimbocca alla Romana

Saltimbocca is a traditional dish from Rome made with veal. It is super simple to make and with very few ingredients. However the best part besides being delicious and beautiful to see is that it can also be made with turkey breast, chicken or pork loin, making it the perfect dish for a smaller Holiday celebration 2020 style. For a complete explanation, check out my YouTube video on this recipe.


Yield: 4 people (2 cutlets each…and an extra one for the chef)

• 4oz = 113g Prosciutto (preferably Prosciutto di Parma)
• 1 ½ lbs. = 680g Veal* (about 9 cutlets)
• 9-12 sage leaves (at least one per cutlet)
• 3 ½ T. Butter, unsalted
• 1 ½ cups + 1 cup White wine (I like Sauvignon Blanc)
• White pepper (or black) to season
• ¼ cup All-purpose flour

*Veal: You could also use chicken, turkey breast or even pork loin.



Serve with mashed potatoes and some more sauce over it!
