  • 1 tbsp each balsamic vinegar and red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts, toasted
  • To serve: bitter green salad

    Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add braciole and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through (6-8 minutes). Remove from pan and set aside to keep warm. Add remaining oil to pan and sauté onion until starting to colour (4-5 minutes). Deglaze with wine, add currants, rosemary and vinegar and season to taste. Return braciole to pan, toss to coat and serve hot, scattered with pine nuts and rosemary and with a salad of bitter greens on the side.
