The Best Braciole

Recipe by Recipe Reader
READY IN: 2hrs 30mins




  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Stir the cheeses, bread crumbs, parsley, garlic and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil together.
  • Lay the flank steak out flat on work surface and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
  • Pat the bread crumb mixture over the steak.
  • Starting at one short end, roll up the steak (like a jelly roll) and tie with butcher's twine. Season the outside with the remaining salt and pepper.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a heavy large ovenproof skillet over medium heat and add the flank steak.
  • Cook, turning until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes.
  • Add the wine to the pan and bring to a boil, and stir in the tomato sauce.
  • Cover partially with foil and bake until the meat is almost tender, turning the braciole and basting with the sauce every 30 minutes. After about 1 1/2 hours, uncover and continue baking until the meat is tender, about 30 minutes longer.
  • Remove the braciole from the sauce. Cut the twine off, and slice into 1/2 inch thick slices.
  • Transfer the slices to a platter, and spoon some sauce over the slices.
