- 3 pounds eye round roast beef, raw, sliced very thin (no thicker than 1/8-inch)
- 2 cups dried bread crumbs, plain
- 1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
- 2 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- 1/2 cup olive oil
Slice raw eye round roast beef very thin. I use an electric slicer. In a medium bowl combine bread crumbs, grated cheese, salt, pepper, chopped garlic and parsley. Mix thoroughly. Taking one slice of meat at a time, in a large plate, spread surface of meat slice with approximately 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil. Next, place about 2 teaspoons (depending on size of meat slice) of bread crumb mixture in center of meat slice. Fold sides of meat slice toward center. Then roll, jelly roll style from bottom to top. Place each meat roll on a thin wooden skewer that has been soaked in water for about 1 hour. Each skewer should hold 6 to 7 meat rolls. This recipe will yield approximately 8 skewers. Once all the meat has been rolled and is skewered, rub each side of the braciolatini with olive oil. Then coat each side with remaining bread crumb mixture. Place the skewered braciolatini on a broiler rack with about a cup of water in broiler pan under rack. Broil for approximately 6 minutes on each side. Do not overcook and do not broil too close to the flame. Serving ideas: Serve with green salad and roasted potatoes or pasta. Braciolatini are great cooked on the grill.
