Veal Chops with Swiss Cheese Recipe

Veal Chops with Swiss Cheese Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

75 g/3 oz butter or margarine
4 veal chops or steaks
100 g/4 oz mushrooms, chopped
50 g/2 oz/0.5 cup Gruyere (Swiss) cheese, grated
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

150 ml/0.25 pt port

225 g/8 oz pasta shells

50 g/2 oz ham, cut into strips

Method :

Melt 25 g/1 oz/2 tbsp of the butter or margarine and fry (saute) the chops on one side, then remove them from the frying pan (skillet). Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes, then stir in the cheese until it melts and season to taste. Spread this mixture on the cooked side of the chops. Melt 25 g/1 oz/2 tbsp of the remaining butter or margarine and cook the other side of the chops for 5 minutes. Place the chops in an ovenproof dish and bake in a preheated oven at 200C/400F/gas mark 6 for 10 minutes to glaze. Add the port to the pan, stirring to scrape up all the meat juices, then pour over the chops.


Meanwhile, cook the pasta in boiling salted water until just tender, then drain and rinse in hot water. Return to the saucepan with the remaining butter or margarine and the ham and season with pepper. Heat until the butter has melted and the mixture is thoroughly warmed through. Serve the chops surrounded by pasta shells.
