4 sirloin tip steaks ¼-inch thick
4 slices of smoked bacon (diced)
2 dill pickles (optional) cut into spears
1 Tablespoon mustard
Salt, pepper (curry powder optional )
1 large onion diced small.
2 Tablespoons flour
Shortening for frying
1 ½ cup of water or beef stock
Take each slice of beef and sprinkle with salt and pepper (curry powder optional). Spread the mustard , diced onions and bacon on the slice of beef evenly, place the pickle spear in the middle. Roll beef slice tightly and tie with toothpicks or kitchen string. Dredge the beef roll in the flour. Melt shortening in a pan and brown all sides of the beef roll. Add water and cover the pan. Put in oven at 325 degrees for 1 hour or in a Dutch oven on top of the stove. Thicken the gravy with flour and season with salt and pepper as needed.
This classic German dish is wonderful when served on a bed of homemade mashed potatoes. Cover with gravy and enjoy!
