Veal chops...Where have you been my whole life???
|They smelled so delicious! This was my first time ever making veal chops and I was super nervous. Not only are they not a cheap cut but if you do it right, they are spectacular tasting : ) Worth every penny.|
|Yummy sauce (remove the rosemary sprig before serving)|
|Plate and serve....I served it over a mushroom risotto (sadly over done, but the first time I did that, so I cut myself some slack...me not perfect : ) yet ; )|
|Drizzle some of the sauce over the chop and enjoy.|
Just like the first time I ever had a lamb chop....when I tasted the veal, I couldn't help but wonder...why the heck it had taken me so long to try veal....it is sooooooooooooo gooooooooood!
Whether it is chili or spaghetti sauce, sometimes it is about personal preference/taste. We also don't always make things the same way twice do we? I think when it comes to a dinner like veal chops, it's not always about a specific recipe as much as it is a method of cooking. A sauce is a combination of flavors you love and the chops are a method of cooking (sear and finish in the oven). The advice I would offer when making a sauce, is to choose spices and herbs you enjoy, and when cooking with wine...just be sure to cook it for a couple of minutes to cook out the alcohol only leaving the flavor of the wine to enhance the flavor of your sauce...oh...and as I said before, be careful not to cook too long...you want a full flavor in your sauce but not a syrup which will happen if you let it go to long.
Ciao for now, and until next time Happy Cookin'
