Lombata di Vitello al Rosmarino (Veal Chop with Rosemary) - Chef Marco Rizzo

Featured by Vina Robles Winery in the Gold Wine Club.

Ingredients

Serves one:

10 to 14 ounce veal chop
Flour
Fresh rosemary
8 cloves peeled garlic cloves
1 1/2 cup veal stock
1/2 cup brandy
Butter
Pure olive oil
Salt
White pepper

Instructions

Salt and pepper the chop and dredge it lightly in flour. Brown the chop on both sides over high heat in a pan with butter and olive oil for three to four minutes. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees and put the veal in for 10 minutes. Add the garlic cloves to the pan after the chop has been in the oven for three minutes. Remove the veal from the oven and discard the excess oil. Put the pan over high heat and add the brandy, followed by two sprigs of rosemary and then veal stock. Remove the chop and turn down heat before blending in one tablespoon of butter. Pour the sauce over the chop and serve. Optional suggestion: serve with a side of rappini sauted in garlic and olive oil.
