  1. Chop the onion into a fine chop, set aside.
  2. Chop a large bunch of parsley also in a fine chop removing the large stems, set aside.
  3. cover your counter with wax paper or plastic wrap to keep the counter clean.
  4. Cut the twine and set aside.
  5. Lay one strip of thin Braciole meat on the wax paper.
  6. Line about one table spoon of onion and about one table spoon of parsley in the middle of the strip.
  7. Gently roll the thin meat into a log keeping the onion and parsley in the inside of the meat.
  8. Take 2 pieces of twine and tie the roll on each end to keep in a roll.
  9. When you have all the meat rolled and tied heat a large skillet to medium heat, adding 2 table spoons of oil.
  10. Brown all sides of each roll of beef in the hot pan. You may need to do this in several batches. When brown set aside.

  12. In a large sauce pot heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and saute 1/2 cup of onion until soft.

  1.  It helps to have another person with you when you make the beef rolls and tie them.
  2. I start by cutting twine for 10 rolls which is 20 about 6 inch twine strips.
  3. I then get the meat out and have my husband salt and pepper when I fill the beef roll and roll it up.
