Reviews for Grandma Schwartz's Rouladen
"This totally surprised me with fabulous taste. I did not add parsnips this time and instead added onion slices. Next time I would love to try the parsnips. The only other change I made was cutting the carrots and pickles to match the size of beef slices instead of poking out like the picture here, adding about 1/3 C water and cooking for 3 hrs on simmer instead of 6. At 3 hrs, the beef was perfectly cooked. I loved the taste that golden mushroom soup gave this dish. So much better than all other rouladen recipes I've tried in last 45 years. Good job Grandma Schwartz!"
