From Williams-Sonoma. Posting for safekeeping-I have not tried but this sounds good. Timing does NOT include preparing the charcoal grill nor marinating time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut 1 of the lemons into 8 crosswise slices.
  2. Grate enough zest from remaining lemon to yield 3/4 teaspoon, then squeeze 1 tablespoon juice.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the lemon zest and juice, oil, and chopped tarragon.
  4. Season the chops on both sides with salt and pepper, then brush with SOME of the lemon-tarragon mixture, reserving about 1 tablespoon of the mixture for the lemon slices.
  5. Let the chops stand at room temperature for 15 minutes, OR cover and refrigerate for up to 3 hours. (If refrigerated, remove from refrigerator for 30 minutes before grilling.).
  6. Prepare a CHARCOAL or GAS grill for DIRECT grilling over MEDIUM HIGH heat. Oil the grill rack.
  7. For CHARCOAL grill: Grill the chops over the hottest part of the fire.
  8. Or for GAS grill: Grill the chops, directly over the heat elements.
  9. For either grill type- grill until nicely charred and cooked to your liking, 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium rare. About 3 minutes before the veal is done, brush the lemon slices with the reserved 1 tablespoon lemon-tarragon mixture. Grill the lemon slices, turning once,until lightly charred and softened, 30 to 60 seconds per side.
  10. Serve the veal chops with the grilled lemon slices.
