Rindsouladen Beef and Pickle Steak

Recently, I was discussing German dishes with my Uncle and Aunt. My Uncle told me I should make this dish. He really likes it when my Aunt makes the dish. I had seen it but never had it before. They told me how they made it. They used ham instead of bacon. The majority of the recipes used bacon. Of course, I used Black Forest ham. I really didn't know what to think. It really isn't an attractive looking dish. Since the dish cooks awhile, I could hardly taste the pickle. I did use the pickles from the refrigerator aisle since those are the ones we eat. Also, I couldn't taste the mustard at all. If you like beef, then you should try the dish. If I had to pick, I like Sauerbraten better but this is an easier to dish to make.
4 (4 oz.) top round steaks
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tsp Spicy mustard
4 thin slices of deli ham
2 dill pickles, chopped
2 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp butter
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cups beef/chicken broth

  1. Trim any excess fat from the outside of the steak. Beat the steaks thin. 
  2. Salt and pepper the steaks.
  3. Spread some mustard on top of the steaks.
  4. Spread a piece of the ham on top of the mustard.
  5. Spread an even layer of chopped pickle on top of the ham.
  6. From one side, tightly roll the steak up and secure with a toothpick. 
  7. On a plate, evenly spread the flour over it. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Roll the steak into the flour to coat evenly. 
  9. In a large skillet, melt the butter. 
  10. Add the onion and saute the onion until brown. 
  11. Brown the rolled up steak on each side. 
  12. Add the broth and cover.  
  13. Allow to simmer for one hour. 
  14. Remove the beef rolls from the broth.
  15. Whisk a little flour into the pan to thicken the sauce. 
  16. Serve the beef rolls with the gravy.

-In 1820, Oktoberfest was from Oct. 12th to Oct. 17th to celebrate the Bavarian Prince wedding.
-Oktoberfest was moved into September for the warmer weather but always ends in October.
-In Munich, the locals call Oktoberfest Die Wiesn since the fairgrounds are named after the Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildurghausen who Prince Ludwig married.
