Beef Rolls in Tomato Sauce
Beef Rolls in Tomato Sauce
(Braciola in Pomodoro)
 
 
Ingredients:

Twelve 6-inch by 4-inch slices boneless beef chuck, pounded to 1/16-inch thickness
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup raisins
5 tbsp chopped parsley
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup finely grated Parmigiano cheese
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup red wine
1/2 tsp red chile flakes
2 (28-oz) cans whole, peeled tomatoes in juice, crushed by hand
1 bay leaf
Garlic bread, for serving 

Directions:

Prepare the Filling:
Mix together raisins, 4 tbsp parsley, pine nuts, Parmigiano cheese, and garlic in a bowl.

Set aside.

Prepare the Beef Rolls:
Place a slice of beef on a work surface perpendicular to you.

Season with salt and pepper, and place about 1 tbsp of the filling on the bottom half.

Starting with the filled half, roll beef up around the filling into a tight cylinder.

Secure roll with toothpicks, and repeat with remaining beef and filling.

Heat olive oil in a 6-qt Dutch oven over medium-high heat.

Working in batches, add beef rolls, and cook, turning as needed, until browned on all sides, about 6 minutes.

Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Add onion to pot, and cook, stirring, until soft, about 5 minutes.

Add wine, and cook, stirring to scrape bottom of pot, until almost evaporated, about 4-5 minutes.

Stir in chile flakes, tomatoes, and bay leaf, and then return beef rolls to pot.

Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium-low.

Cook, covered partially and gently stirring occasionally, until meat is cooked through and tender, about 2 hours.

Remove meat rolls from sauce, remove toothpicks, and transfer to a serving platter.

Continue cooking sauce until reduced and thickened, about 20 minutes.

Pour sauce over meat rolls, and sprinkle with remaining parsley. Serves 6.

That's it!
