Veal chops are an upscale dish found in many fine dining and luxury restaurants. Veal is known for its flavor as well as its extreme tenderness. Whether veal chops are grilled or pan roasted, they can be excellent staples to any meal. Veal chops are cut directly from the ribs of a young cow. The preferred method of cooking these chops is usually either braising or pan frying them. They do contain bones, but these aren’t always the rib bones. Most veal chops come with a piece of the chine bone. The larger veal chops tend to contain the rib bone.
