Sage and Lemon Veal Chops

We don’t always stock veal chops, but when we do, I always snaffle a couple, purely for quality control. They’re simple and quick to cook, and I really enjoy them with a little citrusy finish. Try this recipe.

Sage and lemon veal chops

Lots of garlicky butter, lemon juice and sage are delicious with a juicy veal chop. Serve this with roast potatoes and a bowl of crisp salad leaves.

Serves: 2


  • 2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 x 150g Veal chops

  • ½ Lemon, juice only


  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat; season. Fry the chops for 3 minutes on one side. Turn them; add the butter and garlic and fry for another 2 minutes, until they are nicely caramelised on the outside.
