Roll The bracioles
Pound each cutlet to 1/8” thickness with the flat side of a tenderizing hammer. Be careful not to poke holes thru the meat.
Season cutlets with a drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of salt, pepper. Place 1-2 tbsp of stuffing in middle of cutlet and spread leaving 1/2” space from all sides. Roll cutlet into a cigar shape and tie with kitchen twine or fasten with tooth pick.
Fry The Braciole
Take each braciole and roll in flour mixed with salt and pepper.
In a frying pan place 6 -8 tables of olive oil. Place bracioles in oil on medium heat and fry until browned on all sides. Remove from pan.
Put a couple tbsp of olive oil and 2 tbsp of butter in the same pan. Fry garlic (unless using granulated garlic then you can add at the end) and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Add tomato paste and fry for a few seconds. Add 1 cup red wine and 2 cups of beef broth mixed with 1 tbsp of flour. Stir in salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then to a simmer. Place bracioless back into the sauce and simmer until sauce starts to thicken. Remove Bracioles from pan again, add tarragon to sauce and continue to cook till sauce thickens a bit more. Remove toothpicks from bracioles and arrange on plate, as you like, with some sauce.
Decorate with tarragon leaves and lemon zest.
