my mother and i are from the southern part of germany and over there they use the pan drippings with about a cup or so of red wine, bringing to a boil then adding water and flour to the pan to thickin the red wine in it makes for a GREAT gravy and serve with egg noodles,this recipe is a family favorite but the red wine is a must, just makes the whole thing come together


I lived in Germany and learned how to make this there. I use almost the same recipe, but place the rouladen in a brownie pan, add a bit of water, then bake it for one hour partially covered. I do not put bacon in the rouladen and it still tastes wonderful. I have found that it turns out better if you use the really hot and spicy mustard, sprinkle with coarsely ground black pepper. (I like spicy foods, though). Have never used the brown gravy mix as suggested in this recipe. The drippings from the meat-onions-pickles makes a tasty gravy base on their own.


Try finely chopping filling ingredients and then wrap. Bake 4 to 5 hours in crockpot with gravy.
