Why I Love This Recipe

After watching an Everybody Loves Raymond episode in which Debrah prepared "Braciole", I wanted to find the recipe. This is the recipe I have used.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound top round steak
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic - minced
1/4 cup Raisins, soaked in warm water to rehydrate then drained
6 ounces mozzarella cheese - sliced
6 teaspoons Butter
Olive oil


Cut steak into 4-6 pieces and pound each piece to flatten very thin.

Place mozzarella and butter on each piece then sprinkle with Parmesan, garlic, raisins, salt and pepper.

Roll each piece and tie securely with string.

Saute in olive oil with salt and pepper until steak rolls are browned on all sides.

Drop into your favorite tomato sauce and simmer 1 1/2 hours or until fork tender.

Remove from sauce, let cool slightly then carefully remove string and serve with your favorite pasta.

I always serve w/egg noodles.

I usually simmer about 4-5 hours, in my crockpot.


Variations, to your taste.

Braciole can be filled with:

Mustard, bacon, onion & pickles

OR cream cheese, mushroom, leeks sliced thinly, thyme, pepper, salt, butter, & olive oil.

OR Swiss cheese, garlic, sage & spinach

OR sauerkraut, pepper, parsley, salt, butter & pepper.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I can't believe you have this on here! I remember watching that very episode of E.L.R and looking for this recipe. I couldn't spell 'braciole' though, so I never found it and forgot all about it until I, just now, years later, stumbled across your post. I can't wait to try this!
