Grilled Veal Chops With Lemon-Mustard-Tarragon Butter

This is one of a series of recipes I have from a winery. They unfortunately do not put the chef on the recipe page but on the tasting notes which I did not keep. So for lack of a better source, I'll call this the VSW series. I have not tried most of them, but I want to hang on to them so I'm posting them here. Chefs notes: Grilled outdoors or broiled indoors, there's nothing like the perfect veal chop with a tart herb butter served alongside a fresh pasta and maybe some thin green beans dressed in olive oil.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat coals in a grill until they are covered with ash (mesquite does magic with grilled meats). Season the veal chops with salt and pepper, then place on the grill and cook to desired doneness.
  2. While the chops are grilling, place the soft butter in a small mixing bowl. Add the other ingredients and incorporate them well with a fork. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (If making the herb butter far ahead, spoon onto a sheet of wax paper and form a log which can easily be divided later, then refrigerate.).
  3. When ready to serve, add a dollop of the herb butter atop each veal chop and serve immediately.
