I'm stepping up to the grill! My husband is the master griller in the family, but every now and then I get inspired to play with fire! This is my go-to veal chop recipe that's a crowd pleaser. I'm a fan of veal. It's a succulent, tender meat that's easy to work into your family's meal plan.
If you’ve never had veal, there’s really nothing like it. It’s a luxurious, melt-in-your-mouth tender meat. My kids like the taste more than pork and steak, because it's subtle and mild. And I must say I'm partial to veal chops. They're easy to make and delicious.
I’m sharing my easy Grilled Veal Chop with Mango Salsa recipe. The success of this dish starts with the crown jewel: Cedar Springs Veal produced with care right here in the U.S. by family growers. Joined with ripe mangoes, fresh herbs from my garden and a few more fridge staples, this can be created in no time flat making it great for both a celebration or simply Wednesday night dinner after school, swim team practice and piano lessons.
This dish is bursting with freshness, thanks to the simple to make salsa. In fact, sometimes I make the salsa the night before, so all I have to do to prep the dinner is broil or grill the chops and make a veggie.
I’m using veal chops in this recipe. They’re a great cut for busy families because they’re easy to throw on the grill, bake, broil or pan-sear. (NOTE: Other veal cuts, like roasts, cutlets, shanks and ground, are just as easy to cook and have that same melt-in-your-mouth veal flavor.)
1 ripe mango peeked and cut into cubes
1 garlic clove minced
1/2 small jalapeno diced
1/4 shallot minced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Pinch of salt
1/2 lemon juice
Directions: Mix together in a bowl. Let flavors mingle. Leave in refrigerator overnight or prepare before putting the veal on the grill.

For Veal Chops
Juice of 1/2 a lime
Cedar Springs Veal Chops
Directions: Mix together the spices, mint and juice in a bowl. Transfer marinade to a sealable plastic bag and toss in chops or coat chops with marinade by hand.
Grill on medium heat until medium rare. Don't overcook the meat--it would be a waste of a tasty cut of veal!
Serving: Serve veal warm off the grill or from the oven topped with salsa. I like this dish with a simple mixed green salad or sautéed greens.
Some of my family's favorite dishes involve the fewest ingredients—this is where quality really counts.
Having focused on veal-raising for more than 45 years, U.S. Cedar Springs Veal producers have continuously put into practice the highest food safety standards; a proprietary, nutrient-rich, wholesome diet; and healthy living conditions. When it is responsibly and conscientiously raised, you can feel just as good about the source as you can about the taste.
