"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Beef Rolls with Parmesan, Pine Nuts, Olives, and Capers
Beef Rolls with Parmigiano, Pine Nuts, Olives, and Capers
(Rotoli di Manzo con Parmigiano, Pinoli, Olive e Capperi)
1 and 1/2 lbs fresh plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped
2 large garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 and 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup pitted green olives, chopped
1 tablespoon drained bottled capers, chopped
4 tablespoons pine nuts
1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs from an Italian loaf
2/3 oz finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (1/3 cup)

4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 (1/2-lb) pieces boneless beef top round (1/4 inch thick)
Prepare the Tomato Sauce:
Cook tomatoes with garlic, salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in 2 tablespoons olive oil in a 2-quart heavy saucepan over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes have broken down and sauce is thickened, 8 to 12 minutes.

Prepare the Filling:
While tomatoes are cooking, pulse olives, capers, and 2 tablespoons pine nuts in a food processor until coarsely chopped and transfer to a bowl.

Stir in bread crumbs, cheese, 2 tablespoons parsley, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

Pulse tomato sauce in cleaned processor until coarsely pureed, then return to saucepan and keep warm.

Prepare the Beef Rolls:
Pound meat between 2 sheets of plastic wrap with flat side of a meat pounder or with a rolling pin until 1/8 inch thick, then cut each piece in half crosswise.

Sprinkle 1 piece of beef evenly with one fourth of filling.

Starting with a long side, roll up beef, then tie in 3 places with kitchen string.

Season beef roll well with salt and pepper.

Make 3 more rolls with remaining beef and filling.

Heat remaining 1 and 1/2 tablespoons olive oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until just beginning to smoke, then cook beef rolls, turning, until well browned on outside, 3 to 4 minutes for medium-rare.

Let beef stand 5 minutes.

Cut off kitchen string and halve each roll diagonally.

Spoon sauce onto 4 plates, then top with beef and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons each of pine nuts and parsley. Makes 4 servings.
