Veal Cutlets with St-Damase Sauce

This is the Veal Cutlets with St-Damase Sauce recipe.

  • Prep: 15 min
  • Cooking: 10 min - 15 min
Yields 4 servings


  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 small veal cutlets
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 8 oz (250 g) small mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) cognac
  • 1 cup (250 mL) 35 % cream
  • 6 oz (180 g) Canadian St-Damase cheese in small cubes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • A few sprigs of fresh parsley


In a thick-bottomed frying pan, heat half the butter and some oil. Season cutlets with pepper and brown them 4 at a time over very high heat. Reduce heat and cook cutlets 5 minutes on each side or until done. Cutlets should be firm but still give a little to the touch.

Remove cutlets to a serving plate and keep warm. Add remaining butter to pan and sauté garlic and mushrooms for about 3 minutes. Cook until liquid has disappeared, then season with salt and pepper.

Remove mushrooms with a slotted spoon and arrange over cutlets. Pour cream in the frying pan, add Canadian St-Damase cheese and melt over low heat. Season with pepper, then pour sauce over cutlets and mushrooms. Garnish with parsley sprigs and serve right away.
