Rouladen or Rinderroulade

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Mommy Diva

German /Hungarian meat roulade consisting of bacon, onions, mustard and pickles wrapped in thinly sliced beef and then cooked. Reminds me a little of mini morkon, a dish my Dad makes often. Found on Cookipedia.

Beef rouladen is my favorite German dish, and this version is fantastic! Flavorful, tasty and authentic - and easy to make. I used thin breakfast steaks which I pounded further, and followed the recipe as written. Just wonderful - will make this again. Made for ZWT7, for the Witchin Kitchen.
