Al Capone Roast

Rated as 3.96 out of 5 Stars

"When I was young, my mother used to buy cuts of meat at a butcher shop in the north end of Boston called Al Capone's. That night she would always make her Al Capone Roast. This is a variation of my mothers recipe. Have the butcher run the flank steak through the tenderizer."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Rub the flank steak on both sides with olive oil. Sprinkle the mushrooms and olives over the steak, if using. Place a layer of prosciutto, then a layer of mortadella, mozzarella, and then pepperoni. Season with some of the Italian seasoning. Roll the steak up around the filling, and tie with butcher's string. Rub the outside of the roll with remaining Italian seasoning, garlic powder and steak seasoning.
  3. Heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat. Sear the roast over the entire outside. Then leave the roast in the skillet, and place the skillet in the oven.
  4. Roast for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C) when taken in the center of the roast. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

This sounded like it was going to be great, but it was just kind of weird. Probably won't make it again.
