  • 2 anchovies

  • Step 1
    To make the bean salad, place all ingredients in a bowl, season with salt and pepper to taste, and stir to combine. Set aside.

    Rub the veal with garlic and season with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large frypan over high heat and fry the veal for 3-4 minutes on each side (the veal should still be pink in the centre). Remove chops from the heat and allow to cool.
