Veal is a buttery smooth meat taken from specially raised baby cows. The treatment of the baby cows used to create veal makes this one of the most controversial meats appearing on restaurant menus. Prepare veal chops by using light seasoning and a tenderizing marinade that highlight the natural aspects of the meat without overpowering it. Veal is a more expensive cut of meat, so you want to treat it right. Broil the meat to cook it without losing any of the moisture or flavor.
