Al Capone Roast

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by LAURIE

Very interesting type of "roast". Originally came from a cookbook from northern Wisconsin where Al Capone used to hang out. Otherwise I have no idea how the name came about, but its a great meal, even for a gangster!

I really liked this! The flavors were awesome! I ended up using mozzarella cheese and 4 really thin steaks (about 1/4 pound each)and tried to stuff as much in each one as possible :) and then whatever was leftover I put around the steaks after the first half hour. I also topped it with more mozzarella the last 10 minutes of cooking, yum....cheese. I served it with pasta andI think next time I will cut up even more mushrooms and onions and add more sauce then listed in the recipe so there's more for the pasta. Because of the smaller steaks, I overcooked it a little, but it was still outstanding and I can only imagine how much better it will be when I get it right! Thanks Laurie for the recipe and for answering all my questions about it!
