Grandma Schwartz's Rouladen Recipe

Grandma Schwartz's Rouladen Recipe

This was one of my Grandma Schwartz's recipes. Grandpa Schwartz was a German butcher and this was one of his (and our) favorite meals. It's an extra-special beef entree when served with mashed potatoes made with butter and sour cream.—Lynda Sharai, Summer Lake, Oregon
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Cook: 6 hours YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 bacon strips, chopped
  • 1-1/2 pounds beef top round steak
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 medium carrots, quartered lengthwise
  • 6 dill pickle spears
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small parsnip, peeled and chopped

  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed golden cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1/3 cup dry red wine
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving drippings.
  • 2. Meanwhile, cut steak into 6 serving-size pieces; pound with a meat mallet to 1/4-in. thickness. Spread tops with mustard. Top each with two carrot pieces and one pickle spear; sprinkle with onion. Roll up from a short side and secure with toothpicks.
  • 3. In a large skillet, brown roll-ups in bacon drippings over medium-high heat. Place roll-ups in a 4-qt. slow cooker. Top with mushrooms, parsnip, celery and cooked bacon.
  • 4. In a small bowl, whisk the soup, wine and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over top. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until beef is tender. Sprinkle with parsley. Yield: 6 servings.
