You’re gonna want to go ahead and change that.

It’s lean, velvety and can accommodate almost any sauce or rub. It’s also healthy and safely raised. I was recently sent some from Cedar Springs Veal – a company of family farmers and ranchers that produce some of the highest quality veal you can get your hands on.

It’s insanely delicious.

I decided to do a jerk rub on my rack, and it did not disappoint. The rub created a slight crust on the outside, but it’s SO tender on the inside, and the roux is the perfect spicy/sweet combo to finish it off. 

Here’s your printable-

    Anyone who hasn’t had veal damn well better have a good excuse — like they were stuck on an island with a volleyball named Wilson. ~ This is outstanding, Shea. As usual..
