Beef Rouladen: Â German Beef Roulades ‘Beef Rouladen’ is a German entree that is prepared with thin slices of beef, often rolled with sour pickle and mustard, onion and bacon. Browned, then braised, they take inexpensive cuts of beef and make them worthy of guests. The sauce can be very simple (beef broth) or more complex with vegetables and cream. This recipe uses a little Marsala wine for flavor but you can make this dish without the wine.
“Hausfrauenart” (lit. wive’s method) and “Hausmannskost” (lit. husband’s repast) refer to simple dishes served at home, often made without recipes.Â Servings: 8
