2 tsp Tuscan Seasoning, 1 part basil, 1 pt oregano, 1 pt fennel, 0.25 pt black pepper,
----- 0.125 pt red pepper flake
1//2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp finely ground black pepper, divided
8 oz ground beef
2 oz shredded provolone cheese
2 tbs ketchup
Salt, pepper, olive oil
Heat oven to 350 F. Prepare your mise en place-
Grate carrots, or use a vegetable peeler to shave
them into ribbons.
Place about 1 loosely packed cup spinach and carrot in a small
saucepan. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon water.
Cook over medium-high heat, stirring
constantly, until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Set
aside to cool.In a medium bowl combine egg, 3
tablespoons pecorino, Tuscan seasoning, 1/2
teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Stir well. Add beef, and mix only until
incorporated, taking care to not overwork or
compact the meat. (Your hands might work best
Spread a sheet of plastic wrap on a clean work
surface. Set a cast-iron (or other oven-proof)
skillet next to your work area. Spoon the meat
mixture onto the plastic, and pat it into an 8-
by 5-inch rectangle that is about 1/2 inch
thick. Squeeze the spinach and carrots tightly
to remove all the liquid. Shake them loose, and
place a thin row of the vegetables down the
center of meat mixture. Cover vegetables with
provolone. Lift the bottom edge of the plastic
wrap, and use it as a guide to lift the meat up
and over the filling. Lift the plastic out of
the way as you roll the meat into a log. Do not
get any wrap inside the roll. Gently lift roll,
and place it seam-side down in skillet. Remove
the plastic wrap. Spread ketchup over the loaf.
