Sprinkle about 12 1.5-ounce slices of veal with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Fry the veal slices over high heat with 1/2 tablespoon of butter and 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large, heavy frying pan. Work in batches and sauté for about 45 to 60 seconds per side until just cooked through and golden. Reserve the veal to a platter, and cover with foil.

Add 1 tablespoon each of butter and olive oil to the same pan, still over high heat. Add 12 ounces of sliced cremini mushrooms and 2 finely chopped large shallots. Season with salt and pepper, then sauté for about eight minutes until the mushrooms appear golden and browned. Add 3/4 cup of dry white wine, 1 cup of beef broth and 1/4 teaspoon of saffron threads. Simmer for about five minutes until the liquid reduces by 50 percent.

Add 3/4 cup of heavy cream, and bring to a boil while stirring often. When the sauce thickens slightly, add 1/2 cup of thawed frozen peas and bring the sauce back to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper to taste. To serve, pour the sauce over the veal slices and garnish with lemon wedges.
