"This recipe is so good that when my mom made these for Sunday dinner I wouldn't eat the pasta served. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. They are well worth the effort! Serve sliced over pasta."

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil a heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute onion until translucent, 10 minutes. Stir in garlic and parsley, and continue cooking until onions begin to brown. Remove from heat, and allow to cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine bread crumbs, Romano cheese, raisins, pine nuts and pepper.
  3. Pound steak to 1/2 inch with a moistened mallet or the side of a cleaver. Spread onion mixture evenly over meat, leaving a 1 inch border around the edges. Spread bread crumb mixture in an even layer, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Roll up from the narrow end, and tie tightly with kitchen twine.
  4. Heat remaining olive oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown roll on all sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Pour in spaghetti sauce, reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, for 2 hours, until tender.

Excellent! My only change will be the next time is to put a little more cheese and use italian parsley. I browned them and put in crockpot. Steak was very tender.

made this recipe exactly as is; it was superb. In my opinion, it does not need any tinkering. Our grass-fed beef really shone in this recipe. EVERYONE loved it - my husband, my kids (3 & 4), my ...

This recipe was awesome. I used panko bread crumbs and dried cranberries instead of raisins. A lot of work, but worth the rave reviews.
