    wildheart's Note:

    My father served in the Army in Germany many years ago. This is one of the recipes my mother brought back with her. If you don't like dill pickles, you can subsitute sweet; if you don't like carrots, substitute squash, and so on. My mom said that some families just used a thin dill spear in each rouladen. For even more German experience, serve gravy over spatzle.

      Awful, just awful. First off, don't even pretend like it's only going to take you an hour and ten minutes to make this. Set aside at least 3, if not 5. Aside from the time estimate being horrifyingly wrong, the end result tastes like sweat. 0/10 would never make again.

      This is a very good recipe. Same taste and flavor as my friend mom made in Germany. However I use the Germany mustard (UPC# 0-88468-12800-9) that I bough in the import section of our store.

      It goes without saying, TRUE! This is a "ripper" of a recipe too! Used dijon mustard, had no rye seeds today, Substituted peeled broccolini for carrots, it MADE MY DAY! Told butcher what wanted to make, Said it was healthy for my sake! Used yearling steaks tenderized then pounded away between baked paper...again it MADE MY DAY! Added beef broth instead of water , added red wine, This recipe is JUST devine! Like previous reviewer, added bacon in with gravy, black pepper, reduced it by slight, Am sure hubby and I will have a GREAT night! Thanks!
