Simply broiled veal chops with this sweet yet savory topping will remind you of a dinner by the fire in a romantic, rustic diner far from home—even if you never leave yours!
Updated October 27, 2015

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sliced red onions (2 medium)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup white wine or apple juice
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar or white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 6 veal loin or rib chops, 1/2 inch thick (3 lb)

Steps

  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, place onions and water. Cover and cook over medium heat 5 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients except veal chops; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook about 50 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
  • 2
    Set oven control to broil. Spray broiler pan rack with cooking spray. Remove fat from veal. Place veal on rack in broiler pan. Broil with tops 5 to 7 inches from heat 4 minutes; turn. Broil 4 to 6 minutes longer for medium doneness. Spoon onion mixture over veal chops.

  • The caramelized-onion mixture will just get better when made a day or two ahead. It practically cooks itself, needing more time than attention. Store in the fridge, then reheat before serving.
  • Think how good a roast beef sandwich could be with some of the caramelized-onion mixture spread on the bread. Or liven up Sunday night’s meatloaf with a dollop of these tangy onions.
