Meet the Cook: When I serve Italian Beef Roll-Ups, my family and friends tell me that I should open a restaurant. And this dish tastes even more delicious rewarmed! I do a lot of cooking, especially now that we're retired. As a special treat, I like to bring dinner to our daughters (we have three) and their husbands. -Lucia Johnson, Massena, New York

"Since I come from an Italian background this was always known as Beef Braciole and they are excellent."
