Pork Braciole but Different

"I am planning an Italian dinner and searched the net for a braciole that was a little different. This was certainly it. It came from food network. I won't be making it until mid September, but wanted it in my cookbook and shopping list. As an update.. I did make this in September and it was wonderful and I'll make it many times. It was tested by my Italian family and they loved it."

  1. This makes for a deliciously different meal to be serving family and friends. The aroma alone makes for a five! This was far easier to make than I had anticipated, a meal as good to look at as it is to eat. Thank you CoolMonday for sharing this keeper ... great photo!

I know that because they told me so... hehehe...I live in the eternal city of lights, Las Vegas, Nevada. I stopped working about 3 years ago when I had some personal situations requiring my attention. I do love pizza, especially cold for breakfast the next day.. Since I discovered Zaar, I now prepare a large family meal once a month and I enjoy saving recipes and passing them on to my daughter. Most of the dishes are from Recipezaar.. so thank you very much. I have a good housekeeping cookbook that's about 40 years old and I love it... I have recipes I have saved over the years and have posted some of them. My pet peeve???? hmmmm that would have to be rude or inconsiderate people. Another pet peeve is people who "tell it like it is".
