Tonight we’re making a beef dish called “Rolladen”.
It is of German origin.
My “Rolladen” recipe:
Ask your butcher to slice thin strips of top quality beef (no fat) about 6 inches wide, 8 inches long, and a mere 1/8 inch thick
Spread a little hot mustard on one side
At one end, place a small pickle or pickle piece
Crush fresh garlic and sprinkle over the meat
Do the same with bits of real bacon
Add some sauteed onions
Roll in up and use 2 toothpicks to keep together
Put into a glass casserole and add:
About 1/2 cup water
1-2 Tbsp. virgin olive oil (use a brush to cover the meat with the olive oil)
Salt and pepper
A few shakes of Mrs. Dash.
1or 2 bay leaves (place in the water)
Bake slowly at 325 degrees
This meal goes great with garlic mashed potatoes or dumplings.
