  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Effort: medium


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 40 g butter
  • 6 veal chops
  • 500 ml brown stock
  • 300 g Swiss chard, sliced
  • 1 sprigs flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 sprigs basil, chopped
  • 3 slices Parma ham, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tbsp pecorino cheese, grated
  • salt and black pepper


1. Heat the oil and butter in a deep frying pan and cook the veal chop, turning once, until golden all over. Season with salt.

2. Pour in the stock, cover and simmer over a low heat, turning and basting occasionally for 1 ½ hours.

3. Remove the veal from the pan and leave to stand for 10 minutes.

4. Being a large pan of salted water to the boil. Blanch the Swiss chard for 5 minutes before draining and refreshing in cold water. Pat dry, and combine with the parsley, basil, ham, and garlic.
