Let's make some tasty, easy food

Braciole - Braciole

Saturday, October 30, 2010

Ingredientele sunt cam acestea:


700 gr pulpa de vita taiata in 4 felii de aproximativ 0,8 cm (eu am avut 2, dar gigantice, cam cat o foaie A4) - 1.5 lbs flank steak sliced in 4 slices (I had 2 gigantic slices)
4 felii de prosciutto (eu n-am avut, n-am pus, evident) - 4 prosciutto slices
2 linguri seminte de pin - 2 tablespoons pine nuts
2 linguri de Pecorino Romano rasa (merge si parmezan sau alta branza maturata) - 2 tablespoons grated Pecorino Romano cheese
2 catei de usturoi, rasi - 2 grated garlic cloves
2 linguri de patrunjel taiat marunt - 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
100 ml ulei de masline - 1/2 cup olive oil
o conserva mare de rosii - one 28 oz can of whole peeled tomatoes
50 gr pasta de tomate - 2 oz tomato paste
2 frunze de dafin - 2 dry bay leaves
3 frunze de busuioc proaspat, rupte in fasiutze mici - 3 fresh basil leaves, sliced
1 ceapa uscata medie, tocata marunt - 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
2 morcovi, tocati marunt - 2 finely diced carrots
2 tulpini de telina, tocate marunt - 2 finely diced celery stalks
250 ml vin rosu - 1 cup red wine
faina - flour
sare, piper - salt and pepper to taste

Am luat fiecare felie de carne si am batut-o pana a ajuns la grosimea de jumatate de cm., apoi am presarat sare si piper. Aici trebuia sa pun deasupra cate o felie de prosciutto, pe care n-am avut-o. Mie imi lipseste poza asta, am uitat s-o facbiggrin.gif

Beat each slice of meat with the meat pounder to 1/8 inch thickness, sprinkle with salt and pepper then place a slice of prosciutto on top of each meat slice (I forgot to take this photo)

Am pus in blender semintele de pin, patrunjelul, branza si usturoiul

Put in the blender the pine nuts, parsley, grated cheese and garlic

si le-am blenduritbiggrin.gif

blend everything

Am pus amestecul peste feliile de carne (tineti minte ca trebuie si prosciutto, da?)

Lay the blended mix on top of the prosciutto and meat slices

Apoi le-am rulat strans, bagand capetele inauntru si le-am legat cu ata de bucatarie, dupa care le-am tavalit prin faina si le-am pus la prajit, le-am intors pe toate partile pana s-au rumenit, cam 15 minute

Roll each slice tightly, placing the ends inside the roll, then tie each roll with kitchen thread. Dredge each roll in flour, place in a large pan with enough oil and brown on all sides

In alta cratita am pus la calit ceapa, telina si morcovii

Whilst the meat rolls are browning, in another pan put the onion, celery and carrots to soften

Le-am lasat sa stea cam 10 minute (rulourile de carne se prajeau in vremea asta), timp in care am scos la inaintare conserva de rosii, busuiocul, pasta de tomate, foile de dafin si vinul rosu

Allow to cook for about 10 minutes, whilst preparing the can of tomatoes, basil leaves, tomato paste, bay leaves and red wine

Dupa cele 10 minute am adaugat conserva de rosii, frunzele de dafin si pasta de tomate

After 10 minutes add the can of tomatoes, bay leaves and tomato paste

Am pus in sos braciolele

Add the braciole to the sauce

Am adaugat vinul rosu si doua cani de apa

Add the red wine and 2 cups of water

Am dat focul mic, am acoperit si am lasat sa fiarba incet cam 2 ore, pana ce carnea a fost moale si sosul scazut. La sfarsit am pus busuiocul si am mai lasat 2 minute.

Turn the heat to low, cover and allow to boil for about 2 hours, until the meat is tender and the sauce has thickened. In the end, add the basil and let it sit for 2 minutes.

Am scos atele, am taiat felii

Remove the kitchen thread and cut the rolls crosswise in about 1/2 inch slices


si am pus sosul peste feliile taiate.

Spread the sauce over the slices

N-am mai pus garnitura, deja era galagie in casa din cauza mirosului laugh.gif. Se pot servi alaturi de paste sau gnocchi.

I didn't get the chance to put any side dish on the plate, the smell (and the noise because of it) was already overwhelming! This dish can be served with pasta or gnocchi.
