Veal Chop Milanese with Tomato and Basil Vinaigrette

4 to 6 portions
  • 4 rib veal chops, pounded to a thin paillard or cutlet with bone still attached
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure olive oil plus 1/3 cup for sauteing
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large beefsteak tomato, about 3/4 to 1 pound, seeds removed and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 8 to 10 basil leaves, hand shredded
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • Pound the veal (or have the butcher do this ahead of time) to a 1/4-inch thin and broad cutlet, leaving the bone still attached. Set aside while you prepare the breading setup. Put the flour on a dish large enough to dredge the veal on. Combine the eggs, milk, 2 tablespoons olive oil and salt and pepper in a large bowl or dish with sides high enough to hold the liquid and veal chops.

  • Next, combine the bread crumbs, parsley and Parmesan cheese in a large flat casserole so that the process of breading may be kept neat and tidy.

  • Make the tomato vinaigrette by combining the diced tomato with the shredded basil leaves in a bowl. Stir in the lemon juice, whisk in the oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  • Heat the 1/3 cup olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Cook the veal cutlets one at a time, or if they are small enough and your pan is large enough, two at a time. As you saute the veal, brown one side and keep the veal warm in a 250 degree oven while the rest are cooked. Serve the veal with a generous spoonful of the Tomato Basil Vinaigrette over the top.
