Braciole recipe made with pine nuts, sausage, or hard boiled egg.
One round steak sliced extra thin
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan reggiano
1/3 cup chopped Italian parsley
1/4 cup pine nuts lightly toasted
Pinch of salt and pepper
Bulk Italian hot sausage
Two thin slices of prosciutto
Hard boiled egg
5 cloves garlic finely chopped
15 large fresh basil leaves chopped
(4) 28 ounce cans of petite diced tomatoes
6 ounce can of tomato paste
Lay out the round steak and spread the Parmesan, parsley, pinch of salt and pepper and pine nuts on the steak.
Here you get to choose which other filling you’d like to use.
Either lay out two slices of prosciutto on the steak or spread some raw hot sausage on the steak or set the whole hard boiled egg at one end of the steak.
Roll the meat tightly from one end to the other trying to keep the sides tucked in as much as possible.
Tie up the braciole with cotton string to hold it together and brown it it a pan.
After browning, place the bracioles in the sauce ensuring their covered.
Cook them for about 3 hours in the sauce on lowest heat available with the pot partially covered stirring every 1/2 hour.
Remove the bracioles from the sauce, remove the string and slice them up and put a little sauce and sprinkle some of the Parmesan on them.
Serve with a side of spaghetti.
Add just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pot.
Add the garlic to the pot once the oil is heated up, and allow it to cook until it starts to soften up a bit.
Pour the four cans of diced tomatoes into the pot and add the basil.
Once its been heated up a while, add the can of tomato paste stirring to ensure its dissolved into the sauce.
Cook on the stove top on low.
