Grilled Balsamic Veal Chops Recipe

Ingredients:
2 shallots, coarsely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 sprigs fresh rosemary, coarsely chopped
3 cups balsamic vinegar; divided
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 veal chops (10-ounces each)
4 sprigs fresh thyme, for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

Place the prepared shallots, garlic and rosemary in a casserole dish large enough to hold the veal chops, along with 2 cups balsamic vinegar and the olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Add chops, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours.

Remove veal chops from marinade. Grill the chops over direct medium heat for about 20 minutes for medium, turning once halfway through grilling time, or until until chops reach 160*F (70*C) for medium and 170*F (75*C) for well-done.

Meanwhile, reduce remaining 1 cup balsamic vinegar by placing it in a small saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring frequently, until thick and syrupy, about 8 to 10 minutes. (Do not let vinegar boil rapidly or it will burn.) You should get about 4 teaspoons.

To serve, drizzle 1 teaspoon reduced balsamic vinegar over each chop. Garnish with thyme sprigs, if desired.

Makes 4 servings.

Poached Egg & Turkey Sausage Recipe

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon olive oil
8 ounces hot or sweet Italian turkey sausage, sliced thin on a diagonal
1 onion, halved, thinly sliced
2 orange or yellow bell peppers, seeded, thinly sliced crosswise
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey sausage and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, about four minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a plate layered with paper towels.

Add onion and bell pepper to skillet and cook, stirring often, until softened and lightly browned, about seven minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for two minutes.
