Rollin' Rouladen Recipe: German Comfort Food Recipe for Oktoberfest

While the Oktoberfest festival is at the end of September, we think about German food all through October (all the time, really!). Rouladen, a popular dish in Germany, is steak rolls filled with baconmustard and onions. 

To make this German recipe at home you will need round steak, Dijon mustard, an onion, paprika, bacon, vegetable oil, beef broth, cornstarch and sour cream. This dish is often served with potatoes and red cabbage, but you can serve with your favorite side dishes. 

It's Oktoberfest time, so print out this rouladen recipe and get to rollin'!

Recipe Notes

  • Make sure your meat is pounded thin for this recipe so it cooks evenly and quickly.
  • Try this recipe with other cuts of steak, like chuck or sirloin.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Lay the meat on a work surface. Spread 1/2 tablespoon Dijon on each piece of the meat. Top with the minced onion, a slice of bacon and the paprika. Season with salt and pepper. Roll the steaks up and secure with toothpicks. 
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the steak rolls and cook until browned on all sides. Pour in the broth and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer on low, covered, about 30 minutes. Remove the steak rolls and set aside. 
  3. In a bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup of water and the cornstarch. Slowly pour the slurry into the liquid in the skillet. Cook, stirring, until sauce gets thick, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the sour cream. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 
  4. Put the steak rolls back into the sauce. Garnish with fresh parsley or dill, if desired, and serve.
