Veal Chops Paprikash

Recipe by Dr. Jenny
READY IN: 45mins




  • To make the rub, in a small bowl, mix together the salt, pepper, and the two paprikas. Slash the edges of the chops in 1 or 2 places to prevent curling. Sprinkle the chops all over with the rub. Let stand at room temperature for at least 15 minutes or up to 1 hour, or cover and refrigerate overnight. Bring to room temperature if necessary before cooking.
  • In a large, heavy frying pan, over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the chops and brown for about 2 minutes on each side. Reduce the heat to medium and cover the pan. Cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted away from the bone registers 145 degrees F (63 C) and the meat is lightly pink when cut into near the bone, 4-5 minutes longer. Transfer the chops to a serving platter and tent loosely with aluminum foil while you make the sauce.
  • Pour off all but 1 Tb of the drippings from the pan. Add the shallots, mushrooms, and 1 tsp sweet paprika. Saute over medium-high heat until the shallots are translucent, 3-4 minutes. Add the wine and deglaze the pan, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom. Cook for 1 minute longer, stirring often. Remove the pan from heat and stir in the sour cream. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer the chops to individual pates, spoon the sauce on top, sprinkle with sweet paprika, and serve.
