  2. Heat the oil in a skillet and sear the roast on all sides.
  3. Remove the roast to a cookie sheet and finish in the oven 375°F, about 5-7 minutes, ideal internal temperature to be 130°F.
  4. In same skillet, add the shallots and caramelize over medium heat. Add the leeks and sauté briefly, and then add the mushrooms.
  5. Deglaze the pan with the white wine and reduce by half.
  6. Add the veal stock and simmer to reduce slightly.
  7. Add the butter cubes and allow to thicken the sauce while it reduces.

  9. When the roast is removed from the oven, allow to rest for about 5-7 minutes before slicing.
  10. Pour an equal amount of sauce onto each plate and place the slices of prosciutto wrapped veal on top in a spiral pattern. Odd numbers always look better for presentation.
