How to make it

  • Flatten the beef with a meat pounder to1/4-inch thick. Mix the vegetables together with the garlic. Take half of the diced vegetables and mix with the ground chicken. Season with the salt and pepper, bread crumbs and egg. Mix thoroughly.
  • Season the beef with salt and pepper. Spread the chicken farce on 1 side of the flattened bottom round and add the pickles lengthwise, directly down the middle of the meat. Carefully roll the beef into a tight roll, being sure not to press too hard or squeeze the chicken farce out of the sides. Season the outside of the beef roulade with salt and pepper. Tie with butcher's string in 5 or 6 sections along the length of the roll. Tie them fairly tight, because when the beef cooks it will shrink and the string will fall off. Sear the beef in a smoking hot saute pan in olive oil until all sides are a dark brown color. Remove from the pan and keep in a warm place.
  • In the same pan, add the other half of the vegetables and cook for 3 minutes, when the vegetables are golden brown deglaze with wines and add the fresh thyme.
  • Bring this mixture to a boil, add the beef, and reduce the heat. Cover with either the lid or foil and cook for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and add the veal stock and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and turn the meat, so that the other side of the meat is in the liquid. Cook for 10 more minutes on a medium flame. Cook this mixture until the internal temperature reads 165-degrees F. The chicken must read 165-degrees F or you risk the chance of possible bacteria. If too much of the liquid evaporates, add a little more chicken stock.
  • Remove the meat from the pan and let rest for 10 minutes prior to slicing. Remove the string from the beef with a small knife. Slice the beef into 1/2-inch portions and transfer to a serving platter. Add butter to the vegetable mixture and swirl to melt. Spoon the vegetable mixture over the meat and serve with chopped parsley.
  • This is my recollection of my mother’s Beef Rouladen recipe.

    Thank you for this new outlook on Rouladen - it certainly is one i never hear of - must be one of your inventions. the typical german (if there is such a thing) recipe is so simple: just spread the beef with mustard, pepper and salt insides, lay strips of 'schinkenspeck' together with very thing slices of onion and pickle. roll up, tie,up, bown on all sides, add broth and coook until tender. individual rouland for each person. yes, right, it get boring after a while no matter how good - and the gravy, of course, gets better the more rouladen you make :-)
    i do love your recipe and will make as soon as i will have my son and family over - for one or two is just is tooo much!

    My husband is German and we love trying new Rouladen recipes! Yay! I like how much shorter this one is... the one we have memorized takes hours! We braise it in the oven and it seriously just takes forever.
    I'll let you know when we try this :D

    This sounds great! I've never had it with chicken before. My mother made it a bit differently. It had the pickles though and was made as individual pieces instead of one big one. I will be trying this!

    This is a great beef rouladen recipe :) I like the addition of the Port, along with wine -- it adds another dimension to the flavours :) Thank you for posting this, Waterlily :)
