RECIPE OF THE WEEK
FANCY WHITNEY BRASCIOLE
*** A fancy meal created this week for one family's Valentine celebration!***
Tracy Whitney shares:
I layered a paste of egg, breadcrumbs, and pressed fresh garlic on thinly sliced flank steak (called brasciole).
On top of that I sprinkled (lightly!) a layer of blue cheese, then a layer of fresh baby spinach. I rolled them and secured with a toothpick. Then I seared them in extra-virgin olive oil, just till they were lightly browned. I transferred them to the crockpot on low.
To the oil and drippings in the skillet, I added some white wine, a small can of tomato paste and about a cup of light sour cream. I whisked it all together, to get up all the goodies from the pan and simmered it for about 5 more minutes.
Then I dumped it all over the meat rolls in the crockpot and let them sit on low for about 5-6 hours.
I served it all over a bed of angel hair that had a layer of more fresh baby spinach on top.
Thank you Tracy for sharing this special meal, I can't wait to try it!
Check out a new water drink company that was founded by Kara Goldin, a mother of four who cares about providing healthy beverages to families....she talks more below about Hint..
The idea behind Hint is simple: pure water, nature's original refreshment, accented with a hint of natural flavor.
No sugar, no artificial sweeteners: Hint is a refreshing alternative to sodas, juice and other sweetened drinks and it tastes great.
Sound good? It tastes even better.
We thank you for trying Hint, hope that you and your family enjoy it, and wish you excellent health.
Hint is available in many specialty markets and is also sold in fine spas and hotels. If Hint is not yet available in your favorite store, please ask for it.
Hint is adding new stores, spas and hotels every week and are also interested in school and corporate lunch programs.
