More about Braciola
Slices of meat that are grilled or pan fried are called braciola. They are often cooked in their own juice or olive oil. The Italians call this form of cooking involtini. Involtini translates to little bundles. This is because of all the stuff you can roll in the meat. Anything from other meats, cheeses, bread crumbs, etc. In some areas of Italy, instead of using meat, they use fish. When these involtini are made they are secured with a wooden toothpick or string.
