How To Make Twist On Italian Braciole In Marinara Sauce

It’s Italian Braciole with a twist! Flank steak is filled with various cheeses and basted with seasoned marinara sauce for a truly comforting meal.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour 2 minutes
Total: 1 hour 12 minutes



  • 2lbsflank steak
  • ½tspsalt
  • ¼tsppepper
  • 1cupparmesan cheese,grated
  • 4slicesprovolone cheese
  • ½cupitalian bread crumbs
  • ½tspgarlic powder
  • 1tspdried basil
  • 5tbspolive oil
  • 4cupsmarinara sauce


  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the garlic powder, parmesan, breadcrumbs, and dried basil. Set the mixture aside.

  2. Lay the flank steak on a clean surface and pound flat with a meat tenderizer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  3. Place provolone on the meat and then evenly distribute the breadcrumb filling among the flank steaks and roll, beginning on the short end, all the way up, like a jelly roll.

  4. Tie the roll closed with butcher’s twine to secure the braciole.

  5. Pour the olive oil into a large pot and heat over medium high heat. Sear the braciole roll for about 1 minute on each side, just to brown the meat quickly. Then, add the tomato sauce to the pot and lower the heat to low.

  6. Cover and cook the braciole for 1 hour, basting the rolls occasionally to ensure it doesn’t not dry out.

  7. Serve hot along with the sauce and some cooked pasta.
