I cut this recipe out of the newspaper years ago. It is TERRIFIC, and I have never seen this recipe anywhere else.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place steaks between waxed paper or plastic wrap- pound until very thin.
  2. Cut steaks into serving size pieces (about 8), or you can roll the whole thing and tie with string (That's how I do it!) Combine garlic, crumbs, egg, bacon, 1 1/2 tsp oregano, cheese, parsley flakes, 1/2 tsp salt 1/8 teaspoons pepper, 1 tbs. olive oil.
  3. Spoon equal amounts of this mixture on steaks.
  4. Roll steak and tie with string, or secure with toothpicks.
  5. Heat oil in skillet and brown rolls.
  6. Transfer to oven proof casserole.
  7. Add tomatoes, onion powder, 1 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp black pepper.
  8. Simmer, covered (or bake in 350 degree oven) for 1 1/2 hours.
  9. Add water if necessary- Add wine and cook another 10 minute.
  10. Serve with pasta.

This is a great tasting dish. I did add an onion when I browned the beef, was also a bit more generous with the cheese (only 1 extra tablespoon) and the last half hour of the cooking added cubed courgette, so I did not have to cook that seperately. As you suggested I served it with pasta (orzo) The recipe makes a good amount of sauce, I used what was left with a spaghetti dish two days later.

this is my great grandmas recipe the only thing different i do is after you brown the roll you simmer in your sauce for 1 or 2 hours. this really brings all the flavors together. thanks for sharing.
