Why I Love This Recipe

In Grandma's cookbook this was called Veal Birds. Marian Wilke made it with Beef.

Ingredients You'll Need

Veal or beef steaks, cut 1/2 inch think
Beef broth
Red wine
1 small clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 small shallot (35 gm)
1 four ounce mild Italian sausage link, crumbled
1/4 cup Panko crumbs
One Tbsp of pasteurized egg whites


Combine garlic, shallot, sausage, Panko and egg whites
Spread the stuffing on the meat, leaving a half-inch all around, roll them up and tie them like a package

Roll each of the birds in flour, shaking off extra flour. Brown them lightly in olive oil on all sides

Add beef broth and a bit of red wine up to the middle of the birds

Cover and simmer for 20 minutes, turning several times

Serve with mashed potatoes or cooked wide noodles

Pairs Well With

A nice Cabernet!
