Rich Italian Beef Roll ups Recipe

Rich Italian Beef Roll ups Recipe

I was asked to make this dish but I didn't have a recipe, so I invented my own. It must have turned out pretty good, because I was asked to share my recipe.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 5 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 to 3-1/2 pounds beef top round steak
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 cups spaghetti sauce, divided
  • Hot cooked spaghetti, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine ground chuck, eggs, crumbs, milk, onion, salt and pepper; mix thoroughly. Shape into twelve 3-in. rolls.
  • 2. Cut steak into twelve 6-1/2-in. x 3-1/2-in. pieces. Wrap each roll in a piece of steak; secure with toothpicks. In a large skillet, brown roll-ups in oil over medium heat.
  • 3. Spread 2 cups of spaghetti sauce into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Place roll-ups over sauce; cover with remaining sauce. Cover and bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until steak is tender. Remove toothpicks. Serve over pasta if desired. Yield: 12 servings.
