Veal Chops with Wild Mushrooms & Herbs

When I see veal chops at our local market, it’s a done deal.  Similar in appearance to a thick-cut, bone-in pork chop, veal chops are much more tender however, and have a delicate meaty taste.  Veal chops are best grilled or seared and take no time at all.  For this recipe I decided to sear the chops and then finish them off in a wine-soaked pan in the oven, and to serve them with a wild mushrooms, garlic and fresh herb sauce that is out-of-this world.  Fabulous over a serving of risotto Milanese or even flavorful cooked beans like I did, this Northern Italian meal is just screaming out for a glass of rich Chianti.
