Great as is. To step it up, use double smoked bacon sliced very thin and at the end use a litttle red burgundy in the gravy.

I have not tried this recipe, but I have never seen Rouladin done this way. Our family recipes go back for generations. We're of German decent and have many German family recipes. I'll try it to see how it compares with the real thing.
