This is my first post on this board. Great to be here. I'm having guests over for dinner soon and I have some veal chops. Can anyone give me any recommendations (side dishes, cooking methods, etc)? Thanks in advance.
I don't know much about cooking veal, this looks great. Do you treat it as a steak and leave it medium rare or do you cook it through? I've always been a little confused about veal, can't say I've ever had a veal chop.
I love veal chops, but they're quite expensive in my neck of the woods, so I have them only once every other year!!
You can keep them very simple and grill them. I would coat them with a little bit of olive oil, season with Salt and Pepper, and if you wish, place some fresh herbs on top while grilling, or even brush the chops with a few sprigs of the herb. I am thinking rosemary or thyme.
Here's a fancier approach I took once: Pan fried veal rib chop with condensed milk sauce, celeriac fries and zucchini salad:
I cook it like I would good quality pork meat: I pretty much cook it through, paying attention to keeping it moist. It's ok if it's a little pink in the center, but not too much.
