Pilar - I didn't add pickle because I don't care for it, but will eat it if this recipe is made that way. It doesn't matter what kind of freakin' onion you use in the recipe either. And,... finally,... a little sour cream in the gravy never hurt anyone. I am German too, and I take offense to your critique. My mother is German, and this is basically how she makes it.
I grew up in Germany and my mom would fix rouladen for Sundays or special occassions. The one addition that I add is dill pickle along with the mustard, the bacon and the onion. I then fix a brown gravy as I would for a roast.
Wow this Rouladen are so wrong that ain't even funny I'm german and I never in my whole live heard of making them this way, Original Rouladen have pickles and red onions in it. Also there is no sour cream in those.
My husband and I both loved this dish! The only change that I made was I used a full can of beef broth instead of half (making 4 servings)and an emergency substitution of flour for cornstarch which is 2 Tbs all purpose for 1 Tbs cornstarch. I will be making this again.
I too grew up with a German mother and have been making this for about 30 years. I do have to agree about the cubes steaks...not a good idea. A thin steak is the best. But I do have to disagree on the pickle...love it! I don't use sourcream, but I do use alot of mustard. It makes the gravy so yumsish! My family loves this recipe and asks for it frequently. Jutta
This was so easy and SOOO good! I used the beef that is already sliced super thin substituted onion powder (I didn't have any onions on hand!) used dijon mustard and used real bacon crumbs (from costco)...and followed the rest of the recipe...AWESOME! Probably would be better with real onions but the bacon was good like that and really easy! My german grandma would be proud! Thanks for the recipe!
I was really glad to see your note about the cut of meat and the longer cooking time. I simmer the meat in the broth mixture (I add a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste) for 1 1/2 to two hours. Onions and a finely sliced carrot to the simmer broth mixture is also nice.
My family loved it, even my picky husband :) I used round steak instead of cube steak and fried the bacon lightly prior to making my rolls. I also fried the rolls in the bacon grease, and added fresh dill to the filling. Was a fantastic meal!
