  • Six 12-ounce veal rib chops, cut 1 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Rub the veal chops all over with the olive oil, chopped rosemary and black pepper. Let the chops stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  2. In a very large skillet, cook the butter over moderately high heat until it starts to brown, about 1 minute. Season the veal chops with salt. Add them to the skillet and pan-fry over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until golden and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of one of the chops registers 125°, about 15 minutes. Transfer the chops to a serving platter.
  3. Add the lemon juice and water to the skillet and cook for 1 minute, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom with a wooden spoon. Pour the pan sauce over the veal chops and serve at once.

Suggested Pairing

The bold pepper and rosemary seasoning on the pan-fried veal chops will mirror similar notes in a Shiraz blend. Look for a less concentrated example from Australia that won't overpower the delicate veal.
