Combine breadcrumbs, parsley, Parmesan, garlic, oregano, 1/4 t. salt and 1/4 t. pepper.

Press onto meat, leaving a 1-inch border.

Roll up, starting with a long side, and tie with kitchen string.

In a large heavy pot, heat remaining 3 T. oil, and brown meat on all sides.

Add onion, and cook until tender.

Remove meat from sauce, discard string, and cut into thin slices.
