Veal Loin Chops Tonight

OK, bought these veal loin chops for $5.99 a lb. I KNOW. That is cheap for around here. So I just had to egg them up.

Not real thick, but nice. I marinated them in EVOO, Balsamic vinegar, fresh thyme, S & P, for a good 45 minutes. Aren't they pretty?

OH, and I went to the farmer's market and they had these.... points if ya know....

Those are oyster mushrooms, and they grow on trees, or something like that. They looked good, so I bought some.

The veal chops, 600 degree dome, for about 2-3 minutes a side with some Jack Daniels and pecan wood chips:

I sauteed the oyster mushrooms drizzled with EVOO and some Herbs de Provence... just got them browned at 400 done while the veal was resting.

Plated with some arugula and roasted red and yellow peppers, those fabulous mushrooms are on the bottom of the plate:

This is what veal chops look like when you pull them at 130 internal.... I like them a leetle bit more cooked than I pull steak cause it's sooo tender.

The egg shines again!

    Those shots makes me want to run back to the market for veal chops. I was just looking at some this morning but did not buy any. I think they go for $9 something a pound. Next time.
    Nice job on the egg, you are a pro!

    As all ways Faith you do a heck of a nice looking cook! I have a boneless leg in the freezer I need to get cooked soon. Shrooms sound great as well! :woohoo:

    Faith...Faith...Faith....GOOD grief!!! What an amazing meal!! :woohoo: Veal loin chops are perhaps my favorite meat of all. Don't see them too often, but when I do, I snag 'em! Those look absolutely perfect! And very funny, I picked up some oyster mushrooms yesterday, too! I will be making a wild mushroom soup...Oysters, Shitake,Kings, etc, finished with the obligatory Sherry!
    Seriously...you have my stomach growling! Awesome job!! (Sure beats creamated mussels!! :laugh: ) :whistle:

    Faith you can fling a craven on me.All your pics look so great I know it has to taste great.
  • Michelle, the mushrooms were awesome cooked on the egg. I wish I had bought more, but at $8 per lb. they were more expensive than the veal! Your mushroom soup sounds awesome, wish I could taste it. I think I need to get that recipe.
