Rouladen is a German dish made of beef that is rolled up with bacon, onion, and pickles inside. It is simple to make and only requires a few ingredients. I’ve given this recipe a slight French twist.
First, the beef is pounded thin and then seasoned with salt and pepper. Then spread meat with ½ tbsp Dijon mustard. I used Dijon, but traditionally you would use German mustard. Next, bacon or smoked ham, onion, and pickles are placed on top of the beef before it is rolled up and secured with toothpicks or kitchen twine. The Rouladen is then browned in a pan before being simmered in beef broth until tender.
This dish is typically served with potatoes and gravy. For a French twist, Rouladen can also be made with veal instead of beef. Being French, I like it served with mashed potatoes and green beans.
either way, Rouladen is a delicious and easy-to-make meal that is sure to please any crowd.
