How to make Mom-mom Scola's "Gravy" - Sunday Sauce


I won't get into the Italian-American gravy vs. sauce debate. I just call this recipe "gravy" because Ang does, and she graciously passed on her recipe to me. I make this as my Sunday Sauce :)

In a cast iron dutch oven, brown meats in EVOO, set aside. (For Bracciole, see below)
For bracciole:
  1. Mix the garlic, salt and pepper, parsley and romano cheese together.

  2. Put a scant teaspoonful of mixture onto each steak.

  3. Roll up and secure with toothpick or string.

  4. Brown in olive oil.
________________________________________

Once meats are resting, add some EVOO and saute the garlic. Add tomatoes to pan. Crush the whole tomatoes by hand, or mash with potato masher.

Simmer for 1/2 hour.

Add meats back in, add salt, pepper. Simmer all for at least an hour, up to 3 hours.

I added my own meatballs to this sauce. Feel free to do the same.
