Instructions

1. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add bell peppers, onion, jalapeño pepper and ginger. Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in pear, 1/4 cup lemon juice, brown sugar, lemon peel and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Simmer 5 minutes or until pear is tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice and chopped cilantro.

2. Meanwhile place veal chops on rack in broiler pan so surface of meat is 4 inches from heat. Broil 14 to 16 minutes for medium doneness, turning once.

3. Arrange chops on warm platter; season with salt and pepper. Spoon relish over chops, then garnish with cilantro sprigs and lemon twists, if desired.

To Grill: Place chops on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill uncovered, 12 to 14 minutes for medium doneness, turning once.

Cook’s Tip: For best results, do not prepare relish in advance.
