Veal Chops With Lemon Sage Sauce

Veal, lemon and sage were meant to be paired together, and expensive cuts like these veal chops call for a simple preparation. Although you can grill these chops if desired, we find this method of preparation very effective in creating a moist chop with a nice golden brown crust. We prefer our veal chops medium rare, but if you like your meat cooked a little more, simply leave in the oven an extra minute or two.

Buon Appetito!
