Recipe Ingredients for Pork, or Veal, Scallops in Irish Whiskey Sauce

1 teaspoon Paprika, Hungarian sweet
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground sage

1 pound pork (1/4-inch-thick)
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided

Recipe Directions for Pork, or Veal, Scallops in Irish Whiskey Sauce

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over veal.

  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of veal to skillet. Cook 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Remove from skillet; set aside, and keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining olive oil, butter, and veal.

  3. Reduce heat to medium. Add the chopped shallots and pre-sliced mushrooms to pan, and cook 1 minute. Add Irish whiskey, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
