I hope all of you had a great time for new years and that you have recovered by now, because I want to share a recipe with you!
This is one of the best things you can do with meat, at least in my opinion!
- 4 Beef Rouladen (Very thin cut pieces of steak)
- 4 table spoons mustard
- 4 – 8 slices of bacon
- 4 gherkins, sliced
- 2 onions, cubed
- 3 table spoons oil for the pan
- 100ml red wine
- 500 ml beef broth
- String or skewers
This is what you do:
Put salt and pepper on both sides of the meat. Take 1 piece of meat and coat it with 1 table spoon of mustard. Then put 1 or 2 slices of bacon on your beef, top that with slices of gherkins and onions, all evenly distributed. After that you roll it up and either fixate it with some string or little skewers. Now you just have to do the same for the other 3 pieces of Rouladen. 😄
Once they are all rolled and ready, you can heat the Oil in a deep pan/pot and fry the prepared Rouladen in there from all sides on high heat. Then throw in the remaining onion, that you didn’t use for the filling.
When that is fried up nicely you can pour in the wine and beef broth. The Rouladen need to be almost covered in liquid. Let it boil up once and then put it on medium heat with closed lid for 1 hour.
After that hour turn the Rouladen and leave the lid open, let them stew there for another hour.
Aaaand that is all. 😂
You can thicken the sauce and put some more spices in, but it usually has enough taste from the Rouladen in there.
