Ingredients for German Rouladen

  • 6 thinly sliced beef top round steak
  • 1 cup onions, chopped
  • 1 cup pickles, chopped
  • 1 cup Raw bacon, chopped
  • horseradish mustard
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 bouillon cubes
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pkg brown gravy mix

Prep and cooking instructions for German Beef Rouladen

  1. Lay beef top round steak flat on a cutting board.
  2. Spread Horseradish mustard evenly over meat.
  3. Sprinkle onions, pickles and bacon to meat Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Roll beef by taking the larger end and rolling toward the smaller cut of meat.
  5. Pin meat with a toothpick to hold it together. I also use metal poultry meat pins. (tip - Don't use metal meat pins if using Teflon cookware). You can also tie meat together with string or thread.
  6. Set the power pressure cooker to Chicken/Meat . Add oil to the electric power pressure cooker and brown meat on all sides, remove meat and reserve.
  7. Add beef bouillon cubes to power pressure cooker with 2 cups water, let the sauce simmer until the bouillon has dissolved. Add one package of powdered brown gravy mix stir until blended.
  8. Add browned beef rouladen to the electric power pressure cooker.
  9. Place the lid on the pressure cooker, lock the lid the lid and switch the pressure cooker valve to closed.
  10. Press the Soup/Stew button, and set the timer to 30 minutes.
  11. Once the timer reaches 0, the cooker will automatically switch to Keep/Warm. Release the pressure value to open. When the steam is completely released remove lid.
  12. Serve with pan fried potatoes or mashed potatoes and a salad. Serves 4 to six people.
  13. Note: If cooking Rouladen without an electric pressure cooker, and cooking on stove top -- simmer the Rouladen in a large covered skillet for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until meat is tender.

Safety Tips when cooking with the Power Pressure Cooker

  • Always make sure the lid is locked
  • Switch the release valve to to closed
  • When the cooker is done, use a potholder or tongs to switch the release valve to open
  • Keep hands and face away from the steam as it releases
  • Unplug the cooker when done
  • I know my dog likes to hover around when I am cooking --- Don't feed your pet any scraps that contain Onions (smile)

German Rouladen cooking times much faster with the Electric Power Pressure Cooker

I remember my mother cooking this dish as we grew up. She would simmer the rouladen for hours to make sure the beef was tender. As an adult, I wanted to share this recipe with my family. Working a full time job left no time for the proper cooking times which would result in a tough and chewy meal. So, I experimented with the electric power pressure cooker and I have to say I am impressed. The meat was so tender, the cooker sealed in the flavors and it tasted just like Moms rouladen. Cooked in 30 minutes and don't tell mom but I think it tastes even better (smile).

Tip: You can buy metal poultry pins to hold the meat together while cooking, be careful when placing the rolled meat into the Teflon cooking pan of the pressure cooker as not to allow the pins to scratch the surface.

Recipe from my Mother Johanna (Oma) Blanchette.
