Beef Rouladen Recipe

Publisher Photo
Our family was poor when I was growing up in Germany, so we ate garden vegetables for many weekday meals. When Mother made meat for a Sunday dinner, it was a terrific treat. My favorite is this tender beef dish, which gets great flavor from Dijon mustard. -Karin Cousineau, Burlington, North Carolina

MY REVIEW

"I was so happy to finally find a rouladen recipe that didn't include pickles. I grew up with a German mother and she never put pickles in them. My mother in-law, who happens to be German, always put pickles in hers and I never liked it. She also cooked them to death so they were dry and tasteless. This recipe was perfect!!! Making again tomorrow for Easter."

MY REVIEW

"My Oma and mother were from Germany. This new recipe I see floating around is not how they made it. My grandad spat it out, saying it's not right at all! You use thin steak with onions, pickle, and mustard rolled into it. Topped with sour cream and cooked until all the juices run together. It's the best thing you'll ever eat!"

"One very important ingredient is a pickle as opposed to green pepper. Gives better flavoring!! Grew up in my family's 5-star German restaurant in NYC........."
