Choosing the Veal Chop and Grilling

Veal Chops come from the rib or the loin. Although, loin chops are more commonly found at grocery stores, you can often find rib chops from online retailers. For instance in this recipe you see a rib chop being used, but loin chops could be used as well.

Allow your chops to rest after rubbing them in olive oil, salt, and pepper and placing the rosemary on top. Prep the grill for grilling. Making sure the grill is hot to achieve those nice grill marks.

Make sure not to over cook these delicious veal chops. Veal cooks fast and rib or loin chops are no exception. So be sure to use a meat thermometer to ensure the perfect internal temperature. If you over cook your veal, it is likely to be tough. Follow Girl Carnivore’s grilling steps below to get the perfect veal chop.
