Charcoal-Grilled Veal Rib Chops with Herb Paste
Veal chops take well to the grill—their sweet, mild flavor is perfectly accented by smoky hints from a live fire. But the right grilling technique is key to producing beautifully seared chops with tender, moist, and flavorful meat.
Why This Recipe Works
For our charcoal-grilled veal rib chops recipe, we quickly realized that veal chops do not fare well when cooked directly over hot coals—the exterior burns before the interior is done. We switched to a two-level fire for our grilled veal rib chops recipe, which produced chops that were evenly cooked and beautifully caramelized on the exterior: we browned the chops over the hotter part of the grill and then allowed them to finish cooking on the cooler side. We next found the ideal temperature indicating doneness—cooked past this point the chops were tough and dry.
