The Great Flank Steak Roulade Experiment

Posted on

I don’t remember exactly why, but for the longest time I’ve wanted to try stuffing and braising a beef flank steak, and this very brociale-like roulade was the result. And while the outside was an unsightly mess of frayed meat fiber, the overall dish was a delicious success.



1 trimmed beef flank steak, butterflied, and pounded flat (please note: you must cut and roll the meat in the exact way shown, so the grain is going the right way for slicing!)
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp black currants
1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
2 tbsp chopped Italian parsley
1 ounce pancetta, slice into thin strips
2 tbsp finely-grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
For the braising liquid, I used:
3/4 cup white wine
3 cups tomato sauce
2 cups chicken broth
1 bay leaf
enough water to just cover
