How Long Should Veal Chops Be Cooked?

The amount of time needed to cook veal chops depends on how thick the chops are and the method used. For example, 1-inch veal rib chops cooked on the grill should cook for approximately 7 minutes per side or until an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit is achieved. Grilled veal chops should rest for at least 3 minutes before being served in order to allow the internal juices to redistribute evenly within the meat.

A veal chop can be either a rib chop or loin chop, and it comes from either the rib section or the loin section of the animal. Rib chops are similar to boneless ribeye steaks or Delmonico steaks, and loin chops are similar to T-bone steaks, Porterhouse steaks, New York strip steak and tenderloin that come from cows. Veal chops can also be broiled, braised or pan seared. Similar to the rib chop, a 1-inch loin chop should cook on a grill, under a broiler or in a pan for 7 minutes per side before resting.
