Like the Versatile Strudel so is the Rouladen. We have recently have tried several different styles, many from your suggestions.

Pork Schnitzel (Cuban Style)
recipe with step by step pictures

The other day I wanted to try a Pork Rouladen and Roy Denman suggested a classic German one that used a Special prune filling and a nice sweet sour sauce with plump raisins. I didn't have those so I got an idea with what we had on hand.

Cuban sandwiches have been very popular in the last few years. I can say that if I see one on a menu I would most likely order it. Simple and great flavors ....pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickle, mustard and onion ....Hey that sounds a bit German?

Well In researching I didn't find out much about the origin of the Cuban sandwich, except that it wasn't developed in Cuba but in Miami, from Cuban immigrants.

Well I thought it would make a great Rouladen. Give it a try! Send me your Rouladen styles! Send me your Rouladen styles!

Rouladen History

The word Rouladen is from a French term Roulade that means "rolled up"
although it may come from a musical term roulade meaning..

An embellishment consisting of a rapid run of several notes sung to one syllable. I couldn't find much about the Rouladen except that it was most likely used for tougher cuts of meat and most like a venison where the meat could use some "German style seasoning"

Rolling out some Rouladen Tips!

Anita Greifenstein a reader from Berlin, had some great tips that are truly German, showing how we often will not waste food!

........I like adding a little pickle juice in with the stock. Whatever leftover onions or pickles I have I thrown in the pot also. Any leftover mustard? Fill mustard container with a bit of water, swish it around and also add it to the broth.

Vorachon in Thailand made this for his family and it was a bit tough.
It is important to cook the Rouladen until it is about 200 degrees.
you can also take one out, let it cook a bit and and see if it is fork tender.

Bacon Wrapped Rouladen, like a filet mignon why not wrap the bacon around the meat roll or in addition to having bacon in the filling. This makes a nice presentation as well as added flavor. see picture below

Crockpot style This can easily be done by browning the Rouladen first and then adding stock and simmering in the crockpot on low all day. You can also do a "unrolled style" by leaving the steaks unrolled place in the crockpot then just adding some bacon, onion and pickles to the broth and some German mustard. It is not really Rouladen but the flavor will be there and it is quick and simple.

Try other meats
In the future we will show Rouladen made from pork, chicken and veal.

1000g (Old Rye Bread)

by Brinker Bakery

This item has 22 number 5 star reviews!
I loved it when I got mine. I was amazed that a loaf of bread can be made thousands
of miles away in the Fatherland and taste like it was made next door.

Hand Made in Germany, deep-frozen and shipped to the US in a deep freeze container. This bread has a strong Rye taste. A 90% rye and 10% wheat flour combination bread with a biological 3 stage natural sour dough. A very moist center with a very crisp, flavorful crust. It's all about the crust with this bread. It's a real winner. You simply defrost and heat through. Outrageously delicious by our German staffs' standards.
