How to make it

  • Place veal chops and chipotle chilies in a storage container or large sealable plastic bag.
  • Pour in enough milk just to cover the meat.
  • Cover the container or seal the bag securely.
  • Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or for up to 24 hours.
  • Discard the milk and chilies then rinse the chops and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Using tongs pass arbol, Anaheim and ancho chilies, one at a time over a flame to toast briefly.

  • Using a mortar and pestle grind the toasted chilies with 1 teaspoon salt until coarsely crushed.

  • Roast until the chops are tender and the juices run clear about 14 minutes.

    Very impressive indeed. And I bet that this preparation would be good with the much more mundane (and cheaper) thick pork chop.
