Serves: 4 // Prep time: 15 minutes | Grilling time: about 6 minutes | Special equipment: spice mill

Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • .25 oz fresh sage

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 4 veal rib chops, each about 8 oz and 1" thick

Oil and Spices

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1.25 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2.25 tsp kosher salt


  • .5 cups mascarpone cheese


  • .25 cups dried porcini mushrooms

Special Equipment

  • spice mill



  • ⅓ cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh sage
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • ¼ cup dried porcini mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 veal rib chops, each about 8 ounces and 1 inch thick
  • Extra-virgin olive oil


  1. In a small bowl mix the mascarpone ingredients. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.

  2. Using a spice mill, grind the mushrooms into a powder (this should yield 2 tablespoons). Put the powder into a small bowl and mix with the salt and pepper. Pour some oil onto a sheet pan and then sprinkle the seasoning over the oil. Dredge the chops through the oil mixture to coat them evenly. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling. 

  3. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

  4. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the chops over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to your desired doneness, about 6 minutes for medium rare, turning once. Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve the chops hot with the herbed mascarpone.

Never go back .. Weber is it.

I had a Weber a few years ago, and after having that one for eight years, I went with another brand. I will never leave! My Weber kicks... They are more money but so worth it. From the first steak we made to last nights turkey, we can just tell that this is the grill to have. We live in the Midwest, and its cold outside. It took only a few minutes for the grill to get to heat, it would take the other brand grill much more time. The test with the great steaks we bought, and grill, preformed flawlessly.

We are back, and never leaving Weber Nation!

A quality experience

Assembling this grill was half the fun, the parts are so well made that it was a joy discovering each part and then adding it to the grill assembly. Easy to operate, have had good results with my grill.
