Stuffed Veal Chops

This was the main course on the Valentine's Day episode of Big Daddy's House. These chops are really tasty! The filling is almost pizza-like! On the show, he used a cast iron grill pan, so I used my regular cast iron skillet, and transferred that to the oven. It worked out perfectly!

Stuffed Veal Chops
Big Daddy's House - Aaron McCargo, Jr.

Yield: 2 Servings

Prep: 10 min
Cook: 15 min
Total: 25 min

¼ cup minced prosciutto
¼ cup grated sharp provolone cheese
¼ cup small diced roasted peppers
½ small onion, grated
2 tablespoons seasoned Italian bread crumbs
2 tablespoons minced fresh oregano leaves
½ teaspoon coarse black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
2 (1-inch thick) veal chops, frenched
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

In a medium bowl, mix all the filling ingredients together until well combined. Set aside.

Have grill preheated over high heat and oven preheated to 350 degrees F.

Slit each veal chop on its side to create a pocket. Stuff each chop with filling. Use toothpicks to keep closed. Season chops with salt and pepper and brush with oil on both sides.

Place chops on smoking hot grill and mark for 2 minutes on each side. Remove from grill and place in a baking dish. Finish cooking in oven for 4 to 6 minutes.
