Made today for dinner. It had a lot of flavor, was very moist, and over all delicious. I have a recipe close to this one but will throw it away, this was a lot better. Thank you.

Great recipe. This turned out tender and the gravy was absolutely delicious. I also added a dill pickle spear because the authentic rouladen I had at a little restaurant in Ramstein, Germany, had dill pickle in it. It adds a wonderful flavor to the whole dish as well.

This was awesome. I modified it a little bit, adding dill pickle to the stuffing and letting it simmer for 3 hours. I totally screwed up the gravy, though, doing something I should have known not to do. I added hot cooking liquid to the flour instead of the water. This caused (naturally) lumps or spaetzle, depending on who you talk to.....

This is a delicious, rich, satisfying dish. I follow the recipe exactly, except I add julienned or chopped dill pickle to the stuffing for a more traditional German taste. Turns out perfectly every time. The braising keeps the meat moist and the rolls become fork tender. I serve it with sauerkraut (rinsed and drained well, tossed with crispy bacon and a bit of the rendered bacon fat -- so simple, but fabulous!) and crisp potato pancakes made from shredded potatoes.

I browned the meat in olive oil and simmered it, covered, for an hour and a half. Made home made noodles (1 cup flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 egg mixed together until it is in little balls and then add 1/2 eggshell full of water. roll, cut into thin strips and boil until done) and this turn out wonderful. Thank you!

I have never had Rouladen before and this was terrific! I made the recipe as written except instead of thickening with flour I used guar gum because of low carb. Will have again for sure. Thank you for a great recipe

This recipe is almost just like my dad used to make. The gravy is ridiculously good, you must serve with mashed potatoes to soak it all up!

Oh my this was delicious and a great hit!!! I did cut the recipe in half for DH (left the gravy the same for potatoes) and added a dill pickle spear but otherwise followed the recipe. The gravy was sooo good. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans. Thank you for submitting the recipe and this is going into my Favorites of 2013. Made for Cooking Tag Mania 2013.

I found this while searching for a German dish for my German husband and made it last night -- SOO good! I used pink Himalayan salt and fresh ground pepper on both sides of the meat, and stone ground mustard on the one side. Since many reviewers and other recipes included the dill pickle, I used half a spear in each roll-up. I made this with egg noodles and used the gravy as a sauce. The meat was so tender that even my 18-month old toddler enjoyed it! I will definitely make again, thanks for sharing!
