Veal NY Strip:
Six 8-ounce European veal NY strip steaks
Black pepper
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 ounce unsalted butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
To Assemble and Serve:
½ cup dry white wine
1¼ cups chicken stock
1 ounce unsalted butter

1 Gold Bar squash, charred and diced small
4 Jimmy Nardello peppers, blistered, cut into bite-size pieces

For the Veal NY Strip

Heat oven to 400°F. Season veal portions with salt and pepper, and dredge in flour, shaking off excess. In a large sauté pan over medium-high flame, heat butter and oil. Working in batches, pan-fry veal, turning once, until golden brown, about three minutes. Transfer veal to a sheet tray and cook in oven until medium rare, with  a final internal resting temperature of 128°F. 

To Assemble and Serve

To the pan used to fry the veal, add wine and deglaze. When wine has reduced by half, about 3 minutes, add stock and reduce by half, about 8 minutes. Add remaining ingredients. When sauce has combined, flash veal in oven for 3 minutes. Cut veal portions into 3 even slices and arrange on serving plates. Pour sauce over veal. Serve immediately.
