Al Capone Roast

Recipe by  

"When I was young, my mother used to buy cuts of meat at a butcher shop in the north end of Boston called Al Capone's. That night she would always make her Al Capone Roast. This is a variation of my mothers recipe. Have the butcher run the flank steak through the tenderizer."

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Rub the flank steak on both sides with olive oil. Sprinkle the mushrooms and olives over the steak, if using. Place a layer of prosciutto, then a layer of mortadella, mozzarella, and then pepperoni. Season with some of the Italian seasoning. Roll the steak up around the filling, and tie with butcher's string. Rub the outside of the roll with remaining Italian seasoning, garlic powder and steak seasoning.
  3. Heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat. Sear the roast over the entire outside. Then leave the roast in the skillet, and place the skillet in the oven.
  4. Roast for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C) when taken in the center of the roast. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

My husband tried this recipe and it came out delicous. He found it very easy to prepare. Instead of using garlic powder next time he will try fresh garlic. He may also try using hot green olives next time too. The family liked this one very much.

This sounded like it was going to be great, but it was just kind of weird. Probably won't make it again.

I'm still new to cooking so this may have beeen a little too tricky for me to attempt. But since my father used to work for Al Capone (the butcher) when he was a young man I had to give it a try. Thanks for the wonderful recipe and memories!
