Braciole the Perfect Steak and Egg Meal

Recipes · Uncategorized

Braciole is the perfect steak and egg meal. Thinly sliced steak is rolled around a hard boiled egg and meat filling. Did this just excite my Paleo and protein rich diet readers? It should.

This was one of my favorite Maltese dishes to eat as a kid. Finally at the age of 37, I have decided to learn how to make it. My mom came from a visit and I asked her to make these for me. I took pictures along the way so that I could share the recipe with you.

If any of you are meal preppers and into #tupplife you will love this. It’s already portioned. Just fill your container with this and some greens and you are good to go.

If you aren’t staying away from carbs this does pair nicely with a serving of spaghetti. Roasted potatoes also are a great match.

Here we go, braciole!

First saute your garlic and onions in olive oil. Begin with this steps so that you can divide it in half once it is browned. Set the two equal portions to the side. We will get back to them. Read entire recipe before making this. Also hard boil two eggs and set them aside.

Now for the meat. This is 1/3 loose sausage, 1/3 beef, 1/3 pork.

To this you will add your hard boiled eggs. Chop them up first. Add fresh parsley, dried thyme and Parmesan cheese. Also add half of the garlic and onion mixture that you set aside earlier. Add in 2 beaten eggs as a binder. Salt and pepper to taste.

Now you will spoon some of the mixture on a cut of flank steak. Roll it up and pierce it with a skewer.

Dredge the rolls in flour and brown lightly in a pan of olive oil.

At this point you can bake them in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes or until done. BUT YOU MAY WANT TO CONTINUE. Braciole is traditionally serves with sauce in my family. It is super fast to make and it keeps the braciole moist while it bakes in the oven.

So if your are continuing, once you have them lightly browned set them aside.

To the same pan that you just browned them add 4 chopped tomatoes, and the rest of the mixture from earlier.

And add just 1 tbs of butter to make it richer. You can leave this step out.
