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.

Wunderbar! My mom used to make Rouladen, and these did her's justice! I followed instructions as posted, although I did add a few shakes of Maggi seasoning. Also, used powdered Allspice, salt and pepper to season the meat. Thanks! made for ZWT7 Count Dracula and his Hot Bites

Very good, tender, hearty, comfort, food. I used a 2 pound flank steak that I butterflied and pounded. I was generous with the Dijon and used Worcestershire sauce, Afterburner Petite Dill Pickles. I didn`t have celery. Used 3 carrots. Browned stove top and then browned the veggies adding a 6 ounce can of tomato paste to brown and sweeten. Then deglazed with wine, Then placed in a crock pot with meat on top. Added enough stock to come up half way. Cooked on low for 6 hours, flipping after 3 hours. Did shrink down to almost 1/2 the amount. Let rest for 20 minutes before slicing. Thank you! My DH thank you too! Made for ZWT 2011.
