Toss fresh herbs with olive oil and capers. Season and refrigerate.

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Melt butter with oil in a skillet over high heat.

Brown steaks 1-2 minutes each side. Place in oven-proof dish and season.

Continue cooking in oven uncovered according to the type of steak used and desired doneness.

Meanwhile, soften shallot in same pan for 2 minutes.

Deglaze pan with wine and add veal stock.

Reduce by one third, about 4-5 minutes. Adjust seasoning.

Pour sauce on serving plate, add steak and garnish with OKA cheese and herb mixture.


Instead of OKA, go right ahead and try Canadian Brie, Gouda or Swiss in the sauce... Either way, you’ll love it!
