INVOLTINI OF BEEF "ALLA SICILIANA"
Take three−quarters of a pound of beef, two ounces
of ham, one tablespoon of butter (or one−half tablespoon
of lard), some bread, some parsley, and a piece of
onion. Chop up the onion fine and put it in a saucepan with
the butter (or lard). When it is colored, put in the
parsley and the ham cut up into little pieces, at the same time
add the bread cut up into three or four small dice,
salt, pepper, and a dash of nutmeg. Mix all together well.
Cut the meat into six slices, pound them to flatten
out; salt slightly, and when the other ingredients are
cooked, put a portion on each slice of meat. Then
roll up the meat like sausages, put them on skewers,
alternating with a piece of fried bread of the same size. Butter
well, roll in fresh bread crumbs, and broil on
the gridiron over a slow fire. These are nice served with salad.
