Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place steaks (one at a time), between 2 sheets of ceran wrap. Pound until thinner and bigger in size. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, set aside.
  • Mix flour with about 1 tsp. of salt and 1/4 tsp. of pepper in a lg. shallow plate. Set aside.
  • To make filling:
  • Sautee 2 chopped onions in 2 tbsp. of butter in a skillet, until translucent. Stir in parsely and capers and turn off the heat.
  • Place a slice of bacon (fold bacon in half if too long) and about 2 tbsp. of filling on wide end of each slice of beef. Fold beef over 1/4 inch on the sides and roll up from wide end. Tie with a twine, or secure with wooden toothpicks.
  • Roll the meat in seasoned flour. Reserve leftover flour.
  • Heat 2 tbsp. oil and 2 tbsp. butter in a Dutch oven, or a heavy pot. Brown beef rolls, a few at a time. Remove from pot when browned.
  • Add 2 coarsely chopped onions to the Dutch oven. Brown lightly , then add beef rolls back to the pot.
  • Pour 3 cups beef broth and 1 cup of red wine over top of the beef rolls and onions. Add carrots . Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 90 minutes with the lid closed.
  • When done cooking, you can remove the rolls, carrots and onions into a platter. Discard the twine/toothpicks.
  • The sauce should already be somewhat thickened, but if you like it thicker, use the reserved flour (or just use extra flour) to thicken the gravy. Mix about 1/4 cup of flour with some water, using a whisk, until smooth. Stir into Dutch oven and cook, stirring until thickened. Pour over beef rolls and serve with roasted or mashed potatoes.
  • *Note: you can use some more red wine instead of water mixed with flour, when thickening the gravy.

    Oh man, I haven't had rouladen in years - your recipe looks sooooo good! I will attempt to make this at home, since your instructions are so clear and concise (something I really appreciate when making something at home for the first time!)...thanks, Juels.

    Juels, this is a great post. I love the terrific pictures and you give me hope that I can make this "just like his momma did" I've never quite made it good enough for hubby. I don't think I let the meat braise slowly enough and it was always too tough. I admire the effort this takes. Awesome.

    Braising is such a fabulous cooking method, isn't it, Julia? And this recipe in particular lends itself to braising. You have put together a wonderful meal with your suggestions for carrots and potatoes. You have earned more than a 5. Alas! 5 is the highest we are able to score. Thanks!

    Now you've done it girl!!! This is one of my favorite German meals. My mon (bless her heart.....;-)~~ always use round steak or some other cut of meat that turned out dry. I love the idea of using ribeye. Great recipe Julia. Thanks for sharing it.....
