Substitute for sweet Marsala wine?

They don't sell Marsala at my local grocery store, and I really don't want to drag my infant into a liquor store.  I do, however, want to cook veal marsala for dinner tomorrow night.  Is there any substitute?  Could I use a red table wine and just add brown sugar or something?  Any suggestions?

  • You can sub red wine - or if you can find Madeira or Mirin they would work also.

    But I don't know if you call it veal marsala Wink

  • I would say just go to a liquor store and get the Marsala Wine. Why not? Not all of them are sketchy. You could also go to a place like Bev Mo or something if you want to take the more corporate route.

  • Did you look near the vinegars? The first time I tried to buy it, I was looking in the wrong place. They make a marsala specifically for cooking, and it's usually near the vinegars. Holland House brand is extremely common. Of course, it's not as great as the kind from a liquor store, but it still makes a tasty dish.

    If you can't find it and don't want to go to the liquor store, I would make a different kind of veal scallopine - veal picata or veal parmesan, for example. IMO, you can't really sub the marsala in a dish where that's basically the only ingredient.
