Sicilian Brasciole a la Lena Recipe
A flattened round steak is stuffed with an Italian seasoned bread crumb mixture, rolled up, and tied with kitchen twine. It is then simmered in spaghetti sauce and served with pasta.
This recipe turned out fantastic. Great combination of flavors. This is a keeper.
I made this for the Soprano's final episode party (which was disappointing) but the recipe was the hit of the party! A couple of suggestions to make this easier and tastier: mix the onion mixture with the bread crumb mixture and add enough EVOO to make it bind and then spread it on the meat. I also used panko bread crumbs and Italian seasoning to give the stuffing more flavor. I used toothpicks to keep them all together and they worked great. Add a little bit of red wine to the spaghetti sauce for flavor and use the crock pot for very tender meat. I was in a hurry so I used the high setting for 5 hours and it came out perfect. I will definetly make this again!
