Arrosto Ripieno e Poggio Valente Toscana Rosso 2017 Fattoria Le Pupille

A fairly easy to make and impressive dish that we pair with a Poggio Valente 2017 Fattoria Le Pupille

Ingredients for 6 people:

A large, around 1kg, slice of veal rump, 700g spinach, 100g of thinly sliced cooked ham (or bacon), 2 eggs, 2 handfuls of grated grana cheese, 80g butter, 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, ½ glass white wine, salt and pepper.

Directions:

Clean and wash the spinach then cook it only with the water remaining on the leaves. Drain and squeeze-dry by hand then break into large pieces. Melt in a nice knob of butter then remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper and a handful of grated grana.

Break the eggs into a bowl and beat them with some salt and pepper and a handful of grated grana. Use this to make two, thin omelets.

Spread the veal out on a board and flatten it slightly with a meat tenderizer so it has a more uniform thickness. Cover the meat first with slices of ham, place the omelets on top of this and then spread out the spinach leaving free a two-finger border.

Roll up the meat and sew it up firmly with a big needle and kitchen twine.

Heat the EVOO and butter in a pan and braze the roast on all sides, continually turning it to ensure it has a uniform color. Season with salt and pepper and pour over the wine and let it evaporate. Cover the pan tight, lower the heat and continue to cook for a good hour, turning the roast every once in a while, adding in a half ladle of broth or hot water if needed to keep it moist.

Let the roast sit for 30 minutes after its done before cutting it into fairly thick pieces.

Place the meat slices on a platter and top them with the juice from the pan.

This is also excellent cold.
