Follow these cooking methods/directions:
- Cut a sealable bag along one side and
bottom to open up easily. Place a cutlet inside and close bag. Pound out the cutlet using a flat meat mallet
until very thin. Remove to a baking sheet and repeat with remaining cutlets.
- Arrange cutlets in a single layer on the
sheet and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Spread cutlets with cheese,
parsley and garlic, dividing equally. Starting the narrower short side, roll up
jelly-roll style and secure with butcher’s string or a toothpick.
- Heat oil over medium-high heat in a wide
saucepan. Add beef and brown, turning, until browned on all sides. Add wine and
turn rolls again; simmer for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low.
- Tomato Sauce: Add tomato
passata, ½ cup (125 mL) water, basil, onion, garlic, oregano, salt and hot
pepper flakes to pan and stir gently. Bring to a simmer.
- Cover, reduce heat to low and gently
simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 2½ hours or until beef is fork-tender.
Scoop beef from sauce and place on serving plates.
Be sure to tell your family and guests to remove the string or toothpick before enjoying!
If you do not have sealable bags, use plastic wrap, parchment paper or waxed paper to pound the beef out thinly.
If cutlets are very large cut them in half crosswise to get 2 similar-size cutlets; it helps cook the braciole evenly when you start with cutlets all the same size.
