Slow-Cooked Beef and Mushroom Braciole
- 1.5-2 lbs. Tennessee Grass Fed flank steak
- 1 cup mushrooms, finely diced
- 1/2 cup onion, finely diced
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
- 2 slices bacon or prosciutto, chopped (about 1 oz.)
- 1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes
- 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning blend
- 1 tsp. salt, divided
- Hot cooked pasta or polenta
- Combine mushrooms, onion, cheese and bacon in medium bowl; set aside.
- Cover beef steak with plastic wrap; pound until steak is 1/4 inch thick.
- Season steak on both sides with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Arrange mushroom mixture evenly over steak, leaving 1-inch border on all sides. Starting on long side, roll up steak to enclose mushroom mixture. Secure roll with kitchen twine.
- Place tomatoes in slow cooker; stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and Italian seasoning. Add beef roll to sauce, turning one to coat. Cooked, covered, on HIGH 4 hours or on LOW 6 hours or until beef is tender.
- Cut braciola diagonally into 1/2″ thick slices. Serve over pasta or polenta topped with sauce.
- Test Kitchen Tips
- For a larger flank steak, cut it in half horizontally. Pound the two halves, top evenly with mushroom mixture and roll up each to make two smaller, more manageable rolls.
