Grilled Veal Steak

Veal Steak

The veal we get is from older, grass-fed animals that spend their lives in the pasture with the rest of the herd. I have no idea what this cut was. It was tied and labeled ‘veal for grilling’. 


  • 16oz (500gr) veal steak (suitable for grilling)
  • 2 tbs ketchup
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbs Balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbs olive oil


  • Combine all ingredients except veal.
  • Spoon on both sides if steak and allow to marinate for 15 – 30 minutes.
  • Cook on barbecue grill over direct heat for 4 – 7 minutes per side, until done to your liking. 140F (60C) for rare.
  • Use a meat thermometer or, as last resort, take of the grill, slice into the center and look. 
  • When done, remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice at an angle about 1/2 inch thick (1.25cm) and serve.


An instant-read meat thermometer is invaluable when cooking on barbecue grills. 
Prep time includes marinating time – which gives you time to prep the grill.
