Prep Time: 15 minutes
Category: Main Course
This meal takes a little time to put together but it’s worth all the effort! There are so many variations on Rouladen, but this one has won over my family!
What you need:
Skillet or Cast Iron Pan
3 Tbsp. Canola Oil
Bottom Round Steaks - one per person
One medium Vidalia Onion
Bacon - one slice per steak
Honey Dijon Mustard
Salt & Pepper 
One can beef broth
1 1/4 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Sour Cream
2 Tbsp. Corn Starch
1 Cup Warm Water
To start..
- dice you onion and set aside
- pound your meat 😉! You want the steaks thin, 1/4” thick ~pro tip, cover with plastic wrap before pounding to minimize splatter!
 Pound it good
- spread a Tsp. of Honey Dijon on each steak
- sprinkle diced onion on each steak
- season to taste with salt, pepper, and paprika 
- lay a slice of bacon across each steak.. 
 looks good doesn’t it?
- roll your steaks as pictured and secure with a toothpick! 
 Oh Yeah!
Congrats! Your prep is done! Aren’t those some great looking Rouladen?? Let’s get some color on that meat!
- Heat your pan and add your oil
- brown your Rouladen on all sides
 Smells like home
- once browned add the can of beef broth and 1 1/4 cups of water, bring to a boil
- cover and simmer on medium/low heat for 30 minutes
- remove Rouladen to a dish
- add cornstarch to 1 cup of warm water and mix
- slowly add mixture in to pan and stir continuously, sauce will thicken over 2-3 minutes
- add sour cream and stir
- place Rouladen in the sauce and serve!!
 Trust me on this 
Serve with classic sides like Spatzle and Red Cabbage.. or good old Mashed Potatoes and fresh veggies!!
OMG Yessssss
 Eat Pray Love
