Janet Alexander's Note:
During my years living in Germany I learned many good dishes and this is one of my family's favorite. It is especially good on those cool evenings when you want some "comfort" food. You can use beef or veal, spaetzle (German noodles) or regular noodles.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 6 -8 filet of beef or 6 -8 veal fillets, pounded very thin
- 1 medium onion
- 1 (4 ounce) can mushrooms
- 1/2 lb bacon
- 1 1/2 tablespoons beef base or 2 cups beef broth
- 1 cup dried spaetzle noodles (German noodles) or 1 cup noodles
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1Ask the butcher to slice the beef or veal very thin. Place the meat between plastic wrap and pound it as thin as possible then set it aside.
- 2In a large frying pan cut the bacon into small pieces and brown over a medium heat. Dice the onions and mushrooms and add to the bacon. Saute all until well browned and mixed.
- 3Salt and pepper the beef slices. Put the mixture on a slice of beef and roll up, securing with a toothpick.
- 4Add the butter to the frying pan and place the rolled beef in the frying pay with any excess bacon/mushroom mixture. Brown the roladen on all sides.
- 5If using beef base dissolve in 2 cups of water. Pour beef base or beef broth over the roladen and simmer covered for 1 1/2 hrs until very tender. Add water as needed to insure that there is plenty of liquid.
- 6Mix the corn starch with 1 cup of water and thicken the gravy.
- 7Meanwhile cook the spaetzle or noodles in salted water until tender.
- 8Serve the roladen over the spaetzle with the gravy.
