Have you ever tried German Beef Roulade? It taste amazing; full of flavor, salty and a little sweet. I really enjoy trying new foods and recipes from around the world. I’m slowly realizing creating food in the kitchen is much easier than you think and the more you practice the easier it gets. You learn how to use seasonings, different techniques and what pairs well with others. German Beef Roulade is such a fun, easy recipe and tastes like you worked really hard on it. It’s a recipe you shouldn’t be afraid to try!

 

Get your meat ready, a rolling pin or meat mallet and syrup wrap. Flank Steak works a little better because it’s thinner BUT if you can’t get flank steak, top round steak taste just as good and more reasonable priced. With a rolling pin or meat mallet, flatten meat to a rectangle.

Spread mustard over meat and let sit while you move to the next step.

Chop your onion and bacon. And in a large skillet over medium high heat, cook the bacon and onion until bacon’s crisp.

Spread the bacon and onion mix over meat. Sprinkle chopped pickle’s on top. I’ve never thought of cooking pickles but it’s delicious.

Roll up meat and secure with preferably string or turkey pins but if you don’t have either of those toothpicks will work just fine.

Place meat roll in skillet over medium high heat in bacon grease and brown on all sides. If you only had toothpicks to work with, brown as much of the meat as you can.

Move meat to a baking dish.

Stir flour with fat in skillet and mix until smooth, slowly stirring in beef broth. Cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring frequently.

Pour the sauce over meat. Cover and bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.

Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Pour sauce over meat and serve immediately. The whole family will love this dish, it taste amazing! Pair it with any side you wish.
