Directions

  1. Spread 1/2 tablespoon mustard over one side of each piece of meat. Sprinkle the onion, paprika, salt, and pepper evenly over the steaks. Lay one slice of bacon on each piece. Roll the steaks jelly-roll style and secure with toothpicks.
  2. Heat the canola oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook meat on all sides until browned. Add the beef broth and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low; cover and simmer until tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the meat rolls. Strain the broth mixture and return liquid to the skillet. Whisk together the cornstarch and 1 cup of water. Slowly pour the cornstarch slurry into the skillet, stirring continually until the sauce has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the sour cream. Return rolls to the sauce; serve immediately.

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.

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.
