Slash edges of veal chops to prevent curling; sprinkle with half each of the salt and pepper.

In large skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium-high heat; fry veal chops, turning once, until medium-rare, about 8 minutes. Transfer to platter; tent with foil.

Drain fat from pan; add remaining oil. Fry onion, garlic, rosemary and remaining salt and pepper over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 10 minutes.

Add stock and vinegar; bring to boil, stirring and scraping up brown bits. Boil until reduced by one-third, about 4 minutes.

In small bowl, whisk cornstarch with 2 tsp (10 mL) water; whisk into sauce and boil just until thickened, about 1 minute. Serve over veal.
