      This recipe is outstanding. I love the delicate flavor the dill pickles impart. The gravy is delicious as well. I cheated and used dill relish because it is already chopped. I also served with quartered (peel on) red potatoes.

      OMG - this was the BEST! I have not cooked German food before and have a German friend who was coming over for dinner - thought I'd surprise him. Meal was red cabbage, Cucumber salad #107796, this and beer. His comment was "it's better than my grandmother's"! I must admit, I cheated a little, used flap meat and had the butcher tenderize it. I didn't have any recommended mustard, used the Sweet & Spicy "designer" mustard someone had given me (not the same as Dijon). It was juicy and flavorful (don't be afraid of pickles in the meat, if you have not done this before) and was just one of the best meals I have put together in a long time. Oh, the gravey... looked wierd, but when it came out of the oven, around the meat and I served it, was fabulous! As my German friend also said, "yummmmmmmmmmmm". Thanks for posting this great recipe.
