Veal Chop With Radicchio, White Beans, And Rosemary
From January 2004 Gourmet
3 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 (1/2-inch-thick) loin veal chop
8 oz radicchio, leaves torn into 2-3" pieces (I like the Treviso variety in this recipe.)
1 cup canned small white beans, rinsed and drained
2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar
3/4 cup chicken broth
3/4 teaspoon cornstarch
Mince 1 garlic clove and mash to a paste with 1/2 teaspoon salt, then transfer to a shallow bowl. Stir in 2 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon rosemary, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add veal and turn once or twice to coat.
Heat remaining tablespoon oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then cook veal, turning over once, until golden and just cooked through, 6 to 7 minutes total. Transfer veal to a plate.
Finely chop remaining garlic cloves and add to skillet, then cook over moderate heat, stirring, until golden, about 30 seconds. Add radicchio and beans and cook, stirring, until radicchio begins to wilt, about 2 minutes. Add vinegar and cook until most of vinegar is evaporated. Whisk together broth and cornstarch, then add to bean mixture and boil, scraping up brown bits, until sauce is thickened slightly and about two thirds of liquid is evaporated, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining 1 teaspoon rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Serve veal with radicchio and beans.
Makes 2 serving.
