Hi there! Boy, do I have a great recipe to share today! I’m not sure if I have ever mentioned this before, but I looooove Italian food! I haven’t been able to cook it so much recently because of our eating healthier kick, blah blah… lol but I really wanted to make something super comforting for dinner tonight. And hey, it’s all about portion size, right?! So, I made an early dinner of this beef braciole and you bet it’s on our rotation now!

The recipe is very roughly based on the one from Giada De Laurentiis found here. I was gathering my ingredients for the recipe at my local Publix and picked up this amazing flank streak in the meat section. They always have the best looking meat and produce!

I remember that when I was at Walmart on our weekly shopping trip, I grabbed another bottle of Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil, this time I found it on the top shelf and there was only two left and I grabbed it up! Whew! Walmart is the only retailer that carries it, so make sure to grab a bottle while you’re there next! I knew this would have that nice buttery flavor I like.

So, off to the house I went to make this gorgeous thing:

It looks kind of long, but I swear this is so simple and just packed with flavor! You don’t have to but I used the butter in the recipe just for a nice smooth texture to the sauce, not so much for flavor because you really get that with the Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil. The flank steak gets sooo tender from the long cooking, ugh! SO YUMMY, I like to serve it over rice so it soaks up all the tomato sauce, seriously… make this!

I hope you enjoyed this recipe! What else do you think would go well with the butter oil??

  1. I haven’t made this in SOOO long that I don’t remember how and don’t know where the recipe is! My husband is sitting next to me as I scrolled down the pictures so I guess I am making this next week! Pinned! Hint: the “old” Italian way is to put a hard boiled egg or two inside it!
