Balsamic Roasted Veal Cutlets with Red Onion

1-1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
8 veal cutlets
4 cloves garlic, unpeeled
1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 pound cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the cutlets in batches for 4 minutes on both sides or until brown.

Arrange the cutlets in a single layer in a large, shallow-sided roasting pan. Add the garlic, onion, rosemary, tomatoes, vinegar, and sugar. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Cover tightly with aluminum foil and roast for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and roast for another 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the veal.

Transfer the cutlets, garlic, onion and tomatoes to serving plates. Stir the pan juices and spoon over the top. Garnish with the chopped parsley and serve immediately with Garlic Mashed Potatoes. (Serves 4)
