Try this for a sophisticated and flavorful one-dish meal: Thin slices of round steak (pounded and flattened with a wooden mallet) are stuffed and rolled with a parsley, onion and caper filling, then browned and simmered in beef broth and sherry with onions and carrots. This dish is even better the next day, so make it ahead, refrigerate and heat it up just in time for your dinner party. McCalls Cooking School.
