½ cup Italian bread crumbs

2/3 cup grated parm cheese

½ cup grated provolone cheese

1 ½ lbs Flank Steak, pounded thin; in the direction of the grain

Olive oil

1 carrot, rough chop

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon oregano

1 cup dry white wine

2 32 oz can fire roasted crushed tomatoes

½ bunch fresh basil, chopped


Preheat oven to 350F

Mix the first 10 ingredients in a bowl together. Tossing with a fork to combine. Set aside.

Lay the flank steak on a cutting board, and sprinkle the bread crumb mixture all over the top. Starting at

the side that runs across the grain. Roll up the steak, tightly, to enclose the filling. Using kitchen twine,

tie the steak in several places to secure it.

per side). Remove and set aside.

In a food processor, add the onion, garlic, celery, and carrot, and process until they are finely minced.

To the same dutch oven, add more olive oil. Pour in the vegetable mixture and saute, until the

vegetables are tender and the onion is translucent. Add the red pepper flakes and oregano and work

them into the mixture. Deglaze the pan with the wine. Pour the crushed tomatoes over the top, stirring

them into the wine and vegetable mixture. Using an immersion blender, blend the sauce to the

chopped basil. Serve with a side of pasta, salad, and crusty bread.
