Nice braciole recipe made with pine nuts, sausage, or hard boiled egg. Sauce recipe to go with it as well.

Take a look at me cooking it on our Cleveland, Ohio Morning show.



For 6 Person(s)

For the Braciole:

  • 1 round steak sliced extra thin
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan reggiano
  • 1/3 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts lightly toasted
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • bulk Italian hot sausage
  • 2 thin slices of prosciutto
  • hard boiled egg

For the Sauce:

  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 15 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 112 ounces petite diced tomatoes
  • 6 ounces tomato paste


  1. Braciole:
    1. Lay out the round steak and spread the Parmesan, parsley, pinch of salt and pepper and pine nuts on the steak.
    2. Here you get to choose which other filling you’d like to use.
    3. Either lay out two slices of prosciutto on the steak or spread some raw hot sausage on the steak or set the whole hard boiled egg at one end of the steak.
    4. Roll the meat tightly from one end to the other trying to keep the sides tucked in as much as possible.
    5. Tie up the braciole with cotton string to hold it together and brown it it a pan.
    6. After browning, place the bracioles in the sauce ensuring their covered.
    7. Cook them for about 3 hours in the sauce on lowest heat available with the pot partially covered stirring every 1/2 hour.
    8. Remove the bracioles from the sauce, remove the string and slice them up and put a little sauce and sprinkle some of the Parmesan on them.
    9. Serve with a side of spaghetti.
  2. Sauce:
    1. Add just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pot.
    2. Add the garlic to the pot once the oil is heated up, and allow it to cook until it starts to soften up a bit.
    3. Pour the four cans of diced tomatoes into the pot and add the basil.
    4. Once its been heated up a while, add the can of tomato paste stirring to ensure its dissolved into the sauce.
    5. Cook on the stove top on low.
