Directions:
Directions:
In a bowl, mix parsley, garlic, Parmesan cheese, olive oil, salt and pepper. Pound the round steak on both sides to make it thin. Lay steak flat on a table. Spread mixed ingredients on the steak. Roll the meat "jelly roll" style. Tie securely with a string or place toothpicks to secure. Tomato Sauce: In a large Dutch oven, brown the meat roll in 1/3 cup of oil. Remove the meat; set aside. Brown the onion and garlic in the same oil in the skillet. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients. Bring sauce to a boil, lower heat. Add the meat roll and simmer slowly until meat is tender, about 2 hours. If the sauce reduces too much, add additional water while cooking. Remove meat roll from sauce and cool for 1 hour before slicing. Discard string or toothpicks. Cut in 1/2-inch slices and arrange in rows on a warm platter. Spoon sauce down the middle of slices and serve. Place cooked pasta in a dish and top with sauce.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe is very close to our Grandmother's original one. She used to make small individual rolls, but we found one large Braciole delivered the same taste, with less work. The sauce is so great, so make sure you have plenty of pasta to serve it with. People make Braciole many different ways. Some add pine nuts or dill pickles or raisins or breadcrumbs. We found too many different stuffing ingredients tended to take away from the flavor of this dish. It is really the perfect Italian comfort food and so worth the effort to make!
