Caribbean Jerk Veal Chops

We promise we're not jerking you around, these Caribbean Veal Jerk Chops are ready in under 30 minutes. With the power of habanero chili pepper delicately balanced with the sweetness of honey and a touch of herbs this meal delivers just the right level of spice. It's pure perfection!
For more flavor, try marinating the chops in the Jerk sauce before cooking them. For tenderness you can marinate anywhere between 6 to 24 hours. In this case for flavor marinate for 15 minutes to 2 hours. Always marinate your meat in the fridge!
Pictured above is a side of sautéed broccoli, mushrooms, and tomatoes. Some other good side dishes include: potatoes, asparagus, and if you are feeling brave pair your chops with some grilled pineapple.
