(Winning Recipe 2010 Recipe Contest)

1. To prepare sauce, combine soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic and red pepper in small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 4 to 5 minutes or until reduced by about half, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Remove and discard ginger. Whisk butter into sauce 1 tablespoon at a time. Whisk in lemon juice. Strain out and discard solids; keep warm.

2. Pound veal cutlets to 1/8 inch thickness, if necessary. Combine flour and ground black pepper in shallow dish. Beat eggs in second shallow dish. Combine panko and sesame seeds in third shallow dish. Dredge cutlets in flour, shaking off excess. Dip into eggs, then into crumb mixture to coat both sides.

3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place half of cutlets in skillet; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown and veal is cooked through, turning once. Remove cutlets; keep warm. Wipe out skillet with paper towel. Repeat with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and cutlets.

4. Drizzle 2 tablespoons sauce over and around each cutlet. Garnish with green onions and lemon wedges, if desired. Before serving, squeeze 1 lemon wedge over veal, if desired.

Cook’s Tip: One and one-quarter cups unseasoned dry bread crumbs may be substituted for panko.

    Thank you for this recipe; I served this for dinner on New Year’s Eve and it was a mega-hit. Of course that sauce could make shoe leather taste good! The surprise was that it was so easy to turn out, even during a very busy evening.

    So far every recipe I’ve tried on your site has been good – this was even better.
