Braciole is a beef roll up which hails from southern Italy. I saw a recipe which claimed to be a hundred year old family recipe, so it’s been around a long time. For some crazy reason though, which I cannot for the life of me understand, I waited years before trying it. Then I wondered what the heck took me so long! It is not only delicious, but it’s really not that complicated or time consuming. If you’d like you could serve it with pasta or over some polenta.
I’m not sure I’d classify this as a fancy dinner or rustic peasant food? Either way I think it will impress your family or friends.
The steps are easy. You (or your butcher) cut the steak thin, pound it out thinner, and then layer it with cheese, breadcrumbs, herbs and prosciutto… roll it up, tie it and cook it in some good tomato sauce and you’re ready to eat with a grateful heart.
Buon Appetito! Frankie
