  • 10 cups tomato sauce
  • .9 lb. beef round, thinly sliced
  • 6 pork ribs, lightly seasoned with salt and black pepper
  • 3 hot Italian sausage
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 cup pecorino cheese, shredded
  • handful parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • olive oil for cooking
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • flour
  • toothpicks

To make the brasciole you will need; thinly sliced beef round, about half to three quarters of the garlic, half of the parsley, half of the pecorino cheese, salt, black pepper and flour.

Begin by pounding the beef round slices using a meat tenderizer. Over each tenderized slice, sprinkle salt, black pepper, parsley, garlic and pecorino cheese. Roll up the beef round slice and close using one to two toothpicks. Pour some flour onto a dish and coat the brasciole by rolling over the flour.


To make the meatballs you will need; ground pork, ground beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, and the rest of the garlic, parsley and pecorino cheese.

Add the ground pork, ground beef, eggs, garlic, parsley, pecorino cheese and breadcrumbs into a deep bowl and mix all together using your hands. Roll the meatballs to your preferred size. I like to make mine a little bigger than a golf ball.


In a deep pot, warm up about 1/4 cup of olive oil. Add the brasciole and pork ribs into the pot once the oil is hot, and cook until lightly browned on each side.

Next, add the white wine and cook for about 5 minutes. The wine will evaporate, but it will also bring out the flavors of the meats. Remove the brasciole and pork ribs from the pot and set aside on a dish.

In the same deep pot, add the garlic and onion and fry for about 3 minutes over a medium flame. Add the tomato sauce and mix together.

Add the brasciole, pork ribs, sausage and meatballs into the pot and cook for about 3 hours over medium/low heat.

Once the Sunday sauce is cooked, serve with a bowl of pasta and enjoy! Salute and cin cin!
