German Beef Rouladen Recipe


            German Beef Rouladen Recipe


- 4 slices top round beef, thinly sliced (about 1/4 inch thick)

- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

- 4 teaspoons German mustard (Dijon or a spicy mustard can be used as a substitute)

- 4 slices bacon

- 1 onion, thinly sliced

- 4 small dill pickles, sliced lengthwise

- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

- 1 cup beef broth


1. Begin by laying out the beef slices on a work surface, tenderizing them with a meat mallet if needed to ensure uniform thickness. Season each with salt and pepper.

2. Spread a teaspoon of mustard on each slice, then top each with a slice of bacon, followed by an even distribution of onion slices and a pickle.

3. Carefully roll up the slices, tucking in the sides to enclose the fillings, and secure them with toothpicks or kitchen twine.

4. Heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat in a heavy-bottomed skillet or Dutch oven. Brown the rouladen on all sides, then remove them from the pan.

5. Deglaze the pan with a splash of beef broth, scraping up any browned bits that have adhered to the bottom of the pan for extra flavor.

6. Return the rouladen to the pan and add the remaining beef broth. Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook on low heat for about 1 to 1.5 hours, until the beef is tender.

7. Remove the beef rouladen from the pan, and if desired, thicken the pan juices with a little flour or cornstarch slurry to create a rich gravy.

8. Remove toothpicks or twine before serving the rouladen with the gravy, and enjoy with your chosen sides.
