This recipe is from Bon Appetit, May 1993. The magazine states that it is British/Scottish in origin. The mix of the onions, cheese, and currants is great!

*ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS* Made as written and the instructions were easy to follow :) The sauce was loaded with wonderful flavor and the veal was so tender. I have never cooked veal before, but will again now that I know how good it is. Thanks. *Made for Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens ZWT 6*

A Want More recipe-outstanding! Hubby told me he “learned that he loves this cut of meat AND the cheese type.� Believe me I was surprised to hear that. :D I could not find Stilton so subbed in an Amish blue cheese and subbed Wisconsin craisins for the currants. Can’t wait to share this. The sauce is SO good that I was wishing for more. Served with Roasted Cauliflower, Lavender, Rosemary and Garlic, Super Easy Roasted Red Potatoes, and Old-Fashioned Fruit Crumble (For Two). Thanks for a keeper, breezermom.

Oh breezer, wonderful, tasteful, lovely chops with such exuberant flavors! I especially loved the Stilton cheese along with the currants. This is a keeper for a long time to come. I could of seriously spoon fed myself the sauce just by itself. The instructions were right on, and absolutely perfect! Made for ZWT 6 Zee Zesties 2010
