Food and Comfort

Rouladen is one of the things that make life worth living. Well at least mine does. I need to make it more often. It's just a bit expensive and time consuming. But it freezes well.

Today I'm wearing a brace on my right knee for support. I think it is working. I wish I had another one for my left knee.


Please forgive the ignorance... what is Rouladen?


In this case it is thinly sliced beef rolled around a stuffing of ground turkey, bread crumbs, egg, and spices then baked in a broth of red wine.

I actually like to use as many kinds of meat as possible so ground pork stuffing with chicken broth is my usual recipe, but this time I had ground turkey and no broth so I used what I had.

I learned this recipe from my dad, who's mother taught him her Pennsylvania Dutch recipes, and who lived in germany for years.

All the Rouladen recipes I found online said the filling should be bacon, dill pickles, and mustard. I've never tried that.

Re: Rouladen

Sounds yummy. :)

I grew up in the heart of PA Dutch Country and never heard of Rouladen. This may be because my family was never big on cooking and also because the tourist traps serve up the same tired half dozen "PA Dutch" entrees (like chicken pot pie). Hubby's more likely to have heard of it. I'll ask him.

And BTW I think your version sounds nicer than the one you found online. Bacon, dill pickles, and mustard??? I'm not sure how to feel about that.

Re: Rouladen

I LOVE ROULADEN!!!!! There is an awesome german restaraunt up here in the middle of nowhere. And they make a wonderful rouladen. With a pickle in the middle!! YUMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!

Re: Rouladen

In fact, the whole pickle/no pickle thing is the difference in German regional cuisines.
