German Rouladen (Stuffed Beef)

I am SO excited to share this recipe!  I have been making this for years and it is one of my husband's all-time favorite meals, it is DE-LI-CIOUS!  I found this recipe years ago in a German cookbook and it has always turned out amazingly, I took advantage of my husband's birthday to make this awesome dinner again, check out the pictures below for step-by-step info! ENJOY!!!

German Rouladen
4 sirloin tip steaks
Salt & pepper
8 strips of bacon
8 slices provolone cheese
8 slices of pickles
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
12oz. can evaporated milk
1 C. beef broth
6oz. can tomato paste

1. Lay out your steaks on a large cutting board or pan, season with salt and pepper and rub with mustard (about 1-2 tsp each).  Top your steaks with 2 slices of bacon (each), 2 slices provolone cheese, 2 slices of pickle.  Roll up your beef - roll tightly and tuck everything in as you go, secure with toothpicks. 
2. Place steaks in a large crockpot (read below for *stove instructions), drizzle with olive oil, top with diced onion.
3. In a small bowl whisk together the evaporated milk, broth, and tomato paste.  Pour over steaks.  Cover and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours until your meat is tender.  Serve and enjoy!

-Serves 4-8, depending on the size of your steaks.

I like to assemble everything first, it makes it so much easier to put everything together and limits the amount of times you'll have to wash your hands.

The only sirloin tip steaks available were HUGE! I usually find a package with 4 reasonably sized steaks but this was all I could find, I bought 4 of these babies and it could have easily served 8 people...hooray for leftovers!

Season both sides of your meat with a generous amount of salt and pepper.

Rub with mustard...

Top with 2 strips of bacon...

Add 2 slices of provolone cheese...

Add 2 slices of pickles - you could also dice your pickles if you'd like.  We prefer bread & butter pickles but dill pickles are also quite tasty in this recipe.

Roll up your meat and secure with toothpicks (or twine).

It's just so pretty!  My mouth is watering all over again!

Place your meat in a large crock pot - I prefer the crock pot but you can easily cook this on the *stove*, simply heat a large pan on medium-high heat, add 1 Tbsp olive oil, brown your meat on all sides, add the sauce, cover and simmer on lower heat for 1 hour, turning the meat occasionally.

Drizzle with olive oil.

Add diced onion...

Add sauce and let cook on low for 6-8 hours until your meat is nice and tender.

It was so tender it just fell apart, you couldn't even cut it! Perfection!!!  Serve with extra sauce and enjoy the amazingness!
