"This recipe was ok. I guess I'm looking for something closer to what my mom use to make."

"I've made this Rouladen recipe in the past and it is excellent and authentic. Rouladen is a particular favorite of my older son, who requested I make it for his birthday this year. I add a teaspoon of bread crumbs to the bacon and pickle before rolling up each piece of flattened steak and I add a tablespoon of drained capers to the gravy. I always serve the Rouladen over homemade spaetzel. Delicious!"
