This is one of its kind! A stack of fried and then baked layered goodies. Covered with a good old crunchy crust, it has meaty slices of ham and tenderized beef steaks. And it is deliciously cheesy from the melting mozzarella.

Ingredients Needed for Fried Beef and Mozzarella Roll

10 ounces of beef steak (7 thin steaks 8-ounce each)
4 ounces of low moisture mozzarella slices, halved
4 ounces of ham slices, halved
8 fresh basil leaveses
¼ cup flour for coating
2 whisked eggs for coating
¼ cup panko for coating
vegetable oil for frying
1 tablespoon olive oil
fresh parsley, chopped (for garnishing)

How to Cook Fried Beef and Mozzarella Roll

  1. Wrap the beef steaks with plastic foil and gently tenderize them using a mallet.
  2. Spread a plastic foil on the work surface and lay a beef steak right in the middle of it. Add 1 slice of mozzarella, 1 slice of ham, and 2-3 basil leaves. Continue layering the remaining ingredients following the same order. Top everything with the last beef steak.
  3. Wrap this with the plastic foil. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  4. Add some 2 cups of flour and 2 cups of panko to 2 bigger bowls. Also, beat the eggs and transfer them to a tray. Coat the beef “sandwich” with flour, egg wash, and panko.
  5. Heat 1 – 1 1/2 cup of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry the “sandwich” for 2 minutes on each of its four sides.
  6. Transfer it to a baking dish, drizzle it with the olive oil, then bake for 20 minutes at 380⁰F/190⁰C.
  7. Serve it garnished with fresh parsley.
