Nana’s Italian Roulade
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Cook: 1-1/2 hours
This is Italian Braciole. Often made using round steak pounded thin, stuffed and rolled. Lightly dredge in seasoned flour once rolled and tied then brown in some oil in hot pan. Add to sauce with other meats to simmer away and you have Sunday sauce. Suggested to cook with are pork neck bones, riblets, Italian sausage links, homemade meatballs, even a lamb bone if you are so lucky to have one. The braciole combined with all the other meats gives you a wonderful flavor and a beautiiful meat platter! With your pasta, a huge salad and Italian bread, you have a feast!
Actually, the eggs ARE traditional but so is homemade sauce, never jarred! My non-traditional bracciolle uses sliced pepperoni instead of bacon and minced garlic and parmesan cheese in the filling, no eggs. Then a homemade tomato/mushroom sauce-devine!
Agree with matteliz.
This is a definite keeper in this household! I just cut down the spaghetti sauce to 1-1 12 jars and didn't include the boiled egg, since my daughter is allergic to eggs. My husband and I had that on the side, and just mixed it in with our portions.
Delicious! My children (and husband) gobbled it right down for Valentine's Day. I gave it 4 stars because it takes some time to make. And you have such a huge pot of tomato sauce left over.
Really awesome recipe. Like beef braciole. I liked the eggs and bacon here, they added just enough flavor to make this different but didn't overpower the tender beef.
