Easy and yummy! I was bad and bought the premade Braciole from my local butcher, I followed the rest of your directions - the butcher had only put parmesan and parsley in the middle, so I opened each one up and put a slice of cheese in the middle. The DH was in heaven. He actually had the leftovers for breakfast this morning.

Excellent flavors with this dish. I used my homemade sauce, the cheese ozzed out into the sauce which made it even better. Have lots of meat left so will just add more sauce for another meal. Served with spaghetti, salad and hot Italian bread.

This was good and fork tender. I followed the recipe other then I used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. I cooked mine on the stove for 2.5 hours and it was so tender. It smelled awesome as it was cooking.

We really enjoyed this. I used Gouda cheese, which is what I had on hand. I used the Crockpot method, so all of the cheese melted away into the sauce. (That's ok though, because I used the leftover sauce in a couple of other dishes like #213935.) The meat was tender and tasty. Thank you for posting this!

I used the very thin cut round steak and pounded it a little to get it even thinner. I also used two toothpicks to hold each one together. I cooked them in my electric fry pan. Very good recipe. Thanks

I browned the meat first and then put it in the crockpot, based on another review, for 4 hours on high. It could've been the quality of my meat (it was round steak), but it was tough. The taste was good, but I was disappointed that even though I cooked the meat that long, it still wasn't tender. I have wanted to make Braciola, so thank you HollyGolightly for the recipe.

We all loved these to pieces...though no pieces were left. ;o) Picked up some already thinly-sliced round steaks, used 5 cloves of fresh garlic instead of powdered, mixed that with a little very finely sliced celery, and used a jar of artichoke marinara sauce. Major yummage! They went together very easily, particularly since I threaded a toothpick in each instead of using string. Thank you, Holly!

I have made this several times and we love it! After browning I threw them into the crock pot and let them simmer for 4 hours. They were so tender that they cut with a fork. Thanks Holly!

Fabulous! These came out incredibly tender, juicy and flavorful. You wouldn't believe how it perks up jarred spaghetti sauce. I used freshly minced garlic in place of the garlic powder and used smoked mozzarella. The hardest part about this dish was waiting the two hours for them to simmer in the sauce, but I'm glad I resisted the urge to pull them out sooner. Will most definitely make this again! Thanks! :)
