Beef Rouladen

"It took me years to work up the nerve to try a recipe that called for meat to be wrapped around pickles and cooked. Once I did, though, it became a favorite. My husband and boys request this for Christmas dinner."

  1. Spread 1 tablespoon mustard over one side of each piece of meat. Top each piece with four pickle pieces, a fourth on onion and a piece of bacon. Roll up jelly-roll style and secure with toothpicks. In a skillet, cook meat in butter on all sides until browned. Add the bay leaf, bouillon, rosemary, salt and remaining onion. Stir in 1-1/4 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours or until meat is tender.
  2. Remove meat and keep warm. Combine flour and remaining water until smooth. Gradually stir into juices in skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Discard bay leaf. Stir in browning sauce if desired. Remove toothpicks before serving.

Cube steak for rouladen? Who knew? Well, it worked for us. I pounded out the cube steaks a little to be sure I'd be able to roll them up properly. I thought it was a little salty, so next ti...

Janet...great idea! I only used one pickle slice per piece of meat but used venison so the steaks were smaller. Used kitchen twine instead of toothpicks which kept the smaller pieces together ...

I ate this in a German restuarant and thought how strange but it tasted wonderful. I am glad to have a recipe for it. I used thin round steak, pounded thin.

I was very nervous about the pickle in this but I must say it was terrific. My husband really loved it also. I did substitute Au Jus mix for the bouillon (did not have the bouillon). I will c...
