People started requesting Braciole recipes after Debra Romano (a character on the popular sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond") prepared it for her husband.
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
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.
