    Chef #1166907's Note:

    Hearty and delicious Sunday Dinner. Beef Roll-Ups, Rouladen as they are called in Germany make a great dish, especially when served with red cabbage and potato dumplings. They are easily frozen and reheated! If you can find smoked and salted pork belly instead of bacon, you'll have a real fantastic traditional German dish

      I made this for hubby and I. I was intrigued by you method of prep and cooking. I followed your recipe exactly, and it cooked fine (except I wish I would've partially cooked the bacon first). It is not at all like what we're used to having as far as Rouladen goes. I'm glad I tried your version. Thank you for posting. (Made for PAC - Spring 2013)
