Stephanie & Tony’s Table: Brasciole And Pasta Sauce

BRASCIOLE:

1/2 White Onion (diced)

2 Garlic Cloves (chopped)

1/8 c. Shredded Parmesan

1/2 c. Bread Crumbs

2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 lb. Flank Steak

4 Prosciutto Slices

4 c. Tomato Sauce

4 oz. Parsley

Preparation:

In a large pan, heat 1 tbsp. of olive oil with garlic and onions. Once garlic begins to soften remove from heat.

Meanwhile, lay meat out, and pound very thin. Lay the prosciutto over the meat.

In a small bowl, combine the cheese, bread crumbs and parsley then sprinkle on top of prosciutto. Layer the onion mixture over the bread crumbs leaving about 1/2 inch border on the edges.

Grab the steak from the bottom, and slowly roll it up and tie it with a kitchen twine. Drop into remaining olive oil and brown on all sides, then add in sauce and continue to cook for a few hours.

(NOTE: Prep times can vary by equipment. Be sure to check that meat is fully cooked.)
