Grilled Veal Chop

Grilled Veal Chop with Smoked Blue Butter

A simple, but fancy dinner for two may just be what the doctor ordered to usher in the holiday season with this yummy centerpiece dish.

Makes 2 servings


  • 1/4 cup smoked blue cheese or similar blend of blue
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 bone in veal rib chop one inch thick


In a small bowl mash together the smoked blue cheese, butter, lemon juice, rosemary, salt and pepper. Transfer the mixture to a sheet of wax paper and roll it into a log shape and refrigerate until use.

Over a hot grill or in a cast iron skillet, season the chops with salt and pepper and cook for 5-6 minutes each side. Cut the rolled butter into slices and place on top of the hot chops, allowing to melt before serving.
