Beef Roll-Up

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Whisper

An inexpensive way to serve beef rouladen using cube steaks. Also less fat as these are grilled or broiled rather than browned in oil. These can be made up ahead of time. They're best when done over charcoal. Prep time includes marinating time.

I have made rouladen before but not with cube steak. I think I prefer it this way. I didn't change a thing with this recipe. I cooked it on the barbecue and it was delicious. Thanks for a great recipe Whisper.
