Kitchen utensils

1 Skillet, 1 Small bowl, 1 Roasting pan, 1 Measuring cups, 1 Cutting board, 1 Large knife, 1 Small knife, 1 Tablespoon, 1 Teaspoon, 1 Slotted spatula, 1 Aluminum foil, 1 Fork, 2 Wooden skewers, 1 Citrus juicer

Preparation steps

Stuffed Veal Chops preparation step 1

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.

Stuffed Veal Chops preparation step 2

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 a preheated oven at 400°F/convection 350°F for about 10 minutes.

Stuffed Veal Chops preparation step 3

Rinse marjoram, shake dry, pluck leaves and finely chop. Crumble Roquefort and mix with marjoram.

Stuffed Veal Chops preparation step 4

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.

Stuffed Veal Chops preparation step 5

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.)

Stuffed Veal Chops preparation step 6

Remove the veal chops, wrap in aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes.

Stuffed Veal Chops preparation step 7

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.

Stuffed Veal Chops preparation step 8

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.
