1 tbsp butter, unsalted, room temperature   14 g
4 leaves fresh sage, minced   1 g
  plastic wrap    
2 veal chops, about 1-1,5 cm thick   340 g
2 tsp olive oil   10 mL

  ground pepper to taste    
1 clove garlic, whole    
2 tbsp white wine [optional]   30 mL

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. In a small bowl, whisk the butter and minced sage leaves to blend. Wrap the sage butter in plastic wrap, forming a 3 cm-diameter log. Chill at least 1 hour (or can be made up to 1 week ahead and kept refrigerated).
  2. Arrange the chops in single layer in a shallow dish. Drizzle with half of the olive oil, sprinkle with the minced rosemary leaves, then season with salt and pepper. Rub the oil and seasoning into the chops, then cover with plastic wrap. Chill overnight. Let the chops stand at room temperature 1 hour before cooking.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a heavy pan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, sauté 1 min until fragrant, then remove it. Increase the heat to 'high', then add the chops. Cook until the chops are browned, about 2 min per side. Transfer the chops to a plate.
  4. Reduce the heat to 'medium-high', then deglaze with the wine, scraping up any browned bits, about 30 sec. Drizzle the pan contents over the chops. Cut the sage butter into slices and place 1 slice on top of each chop. Serve.
