Two 14-oz veal chops
1/2 cup olive oil
6 cloves garlic
4 sprigs rosemary
4 sprigs thyme
1 pinch chili flakes
salt and pepper to taste

Marinate the veal in 1/4 cup olive oil, 3 cloves garlic, 2 sprigs rosemary, 2 sprigs thyme, and chili flakes for 4 to 6 hours.
Wipe off marinade and season veal with salt and pepper.
Sear veal in a very hot pan until golden on all sides.
Remove and transfer veal to another pan. Crush and add remaining garlic and remaining sprigs of thyme and rosemary. Coat generously in olive oil.
Transfer to a 225°F oven and roast slowly, turning over every 5 minutes. Coat in oil and ensure even cooking.
Remove veal when it reaches an internal temperature of 130°F.
Allow meat to rest for 8 minutes.
Slice veal and serve with porcini mushrooms and bone marrow and preserved lemon jus (recipes to right and on page 9).
