Wonderful cheese-stuffed beef rolls simmered in pasta sauce. A great Sunday afternoon meal. I serve with a side of pasta and fresh steamed veggies.

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound the steak very thin and cut into 4 pieces.
  2. Place a slice of mozzarella on each piece, then top with parmesan, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  3. Roll each piece up tightly and secure with a string.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet and brown the rolls evenly on each side.
  5. Drop them in your favorite pasta sauce and allow them to simmer for 2 hours or until tender and cooked through. (The meat will add a wonderful flavor to your sauce!).
  6. Remove the strings and serve.
  7. (Alternative: Assemble and brown the beef rolls the night before and store them in the fridge. Then drop the rolls and the sauce in your crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours the next day).
