Watching Netflix or Amazon Prime Video is an escape from boredom for everyone nowadays. A good comedy series can make you happy. I was going through the comedy series and found one named Everybody Loves Raymond. It is an American sitcom and I enjoyed watching it. One of its episodes features a dish named beef braciole. In the series, beef braciole is the only recipe that Ray Barone’s wife can make. Watching that clicked my mind to share its recipe with you all.
Braciole is a classic Italian dish made with thin slices of meat and its filling is cooked in wine-infused sauce. Braciole can be made with beef slices or flank steak rolls. You can even make this recipe with pork. There can be variations to this dish as per your choice of meat or the filling ingredients.
To make beef braciole, mix parsley, garlic, breadcrumbs, cheese, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Place the prosciutto slices over beef slices, fill them with the cheese mixture, and roll them. Cook the rolls in a pan from both sides. In the same pan, add wine, garlic, seasoning, broth, and tomatoes and bring them to a boil. Put the rolls in it and cook for some time.
