Beef Rollups Rouladen

Of all german meat recipes, beef rollups rouladen is a great beef flank steak recipe.

If you are looking for beef round steak recipes, or a good deer meat recipe, this is an excellent dish for slices of meat cut from the rump.

When we had deer meat I would always make rouladen from it because I do not care for the taste of a deer meat roast.

Nowadays I make beef rollups rouladen from either flank steak or round steak or thin slices of eye round roast, all work well for this easy beef recipe.

They are great served with either noodles and a green salad or mashed potatoes and red cabbage as side dishes.


  • 2 tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 1 to 1 1/2 lbs. beef or deer meat, sliced lengthwise into 4 portions
  • Prepared mustard
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/2 onion, sliced into 4 slices
  • 1 dill pickle, quartered
  • seasoning salt
  • pepper
  • 8 round toothpicks


  • Lightly pound the meat slices on both sides between 2 pieces of plastic wrap.
  • Slices should be 1/8"-1/4" thick and 5"-6" long.
