Step 1

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients used for the stuffing making sure is very well combines.

Step 2

Pound and flatten the slices of steak.

Step 3

Spoon about 2 tbsp of the stuffing on each meat slice and roll making sure the stuffing is encased.

Step 4

Use kitchen string or toothpicks to secure the meat. Flour each roll and set aside.

Step 5

In a large pan, cook the onion and garlic for a few minutes in enough water to just cover the onion.

Step 6

Add the beef rolls and brown them over medium heat.

Step 7

Remove the beef rolls from the pan and set aside.

Step 8

Add the tomatoes, carrots, tomato paste, herbs, worcestershire sauce and wine to the pan.

Step 9

Season with salt and pepper, stir gently and cook for about 10 mins.

Step 10

Return the bragioli to the pan, add the peas and bring to the boil.

Step 11

Reduce the heat and simmer until the meat is cooked thoroughly - in my case, I cooked it for 30 mins - if the sauce begins to dry, add more wine and let it cook for a bit longer.

Step 12

Cook the spaghetti according to the instructions in the pack. Drain and return to the pan.

Step 13

Add some of the bragioli sauce to the spaghetti and serve sprinkled with fresh chopped parsley.
