Veal Chops with Herb Sauce
- ½ cup parsley
- ½ cup mixed soft herbs, we used chervil, chives, thyme, and tarragon
- ½ lemon, juice and zest
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 large egg yolk
- Kosher salt & black pepper
- 4 Veal Porterhouse Chops
- 2 tablespoons ghee or clarified butter
- ¾ cup white wine
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- To the bowl of a food processor, add parsley, mixed herbs, lemon zest and about 2 tablespoons of lemon juice; pulse until finely chopped; season with salt and pepper. Add cream and egg yolk, purée until smooth, about 30 seconds; set aside.
- Pat chops dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. Heat the clarified butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the steaks, turning a few times, until evenly golden and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 140 degrees F, for medium. Remove to a cutting board to rest.
- Drain off excess fat from the pan then return to medium-high heat. Add wine, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan and cook until wine is reduced by half. Reduce heat to low; whisk in herb mixture stirring constantly until thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Whisk in butter. Taste for seasoning, adding salt and/or pepper if needed.
- Carve meat away from the bone (optional) then slice across the grain and nap sauce over the top. Serve immediately.
About Veal Porterhouse
The veal porterhouse chop is a tender steak alternative. It offers the best of two tasty worlds: the tenderloin and the strip. Imagine a filet mignon steak and a strip steak with a T-bone between them. That’s the porterhouse – all 16 juicy ounces of it.
Only, in this case, it is velvety milk-fed veal. Rosy pink and tender as can be, the veal porterhouse is a great steak alternative.
