Stuffed Veal Chops
- 2 Onions
- 2 Garlic cloves
- 1 Pear (about 180 grams)
- 1 pinch Cane sugar
- 2 tablespoons Olive oil
- 2 sprigs Marjoram
- 2 ounces Roquefort cheese
- 1 Veal (about 450 grams, with bone)
- ½ cup White wine
- ½ cup Soy creamer
- ½ Lemon
Peel the onions and cut into 5 mm (approximately 1/4 inch) thick rings. Peel and crush the garlic cloves. Rinse the pears, cut into quarters and remove the cores. Cut pear quarters in half.
Put onion rings, garlic and pear pieces in a roasting pan and season with salt, pepper and sugar. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil. Bake in preheated oven at 200°C (fan oven 180°C, gas mark 3) (approximatey 400°F/convection 350°F) for about 10 minutes.
Rinse marjoram, shake dry, pluck leaves and finely chop. Crumble Roquefort and mix with marjoram.
Cut a horizontal slit into each veal chop to form a pouch and fill it with the cheese; seal the incision with 2 wooden skewers. Season meat with salt and pepper.
Heat the remaining oil in a heavy pan over high heat and brown the chops on each side 2-3 minutes. Place on top of the onion mixture in roasting pan and roast in the oven until cooked through, 25-30 minutes. (Test by piercing meat with a wooden skewer: The juice should be pink unless you prefer to cook it longer, until the juice runs clear.)
Remove the veal chops, wrap in aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
Place the roasting pan on the stove and bring the liquid to a boil. Deglaze the pan with white wine, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan, and let simmer until completely evaporated.
Add the soy creamer and let it boil over medium heat until thickened, 3-4 minutes. Squeeze juice from half a lemon, then whisk 2 teaspoons juice into sauce and season with salt and pepper.
