This recipe is one my mom made for us when we visited one time, and my husband LOVED it. He loves most german food, but this was a winner.



4 sandwich steaks, 6 oz each
2 tsp dijon mustard
1/4 tsp pepper
4 slices of bacon
2 dill pickles, cut length-wise
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups beef broth
4 peppercorns
1 bay leaf

Lay steaks flat, spread each with mustard and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place a strip of bacon on each one. Place pickle and onion at one end, and roll up jelly roll style, securing with a toothpick.

Brown well in butter drippings and then place in baking dish and pour beef broth, peppercorns and bay leaf in as well. Cover and bake at 350 F for 1.5 - 2 hours, or until tender.

Remove rolls from pan, remove toothpicks, place on heated tray/plate, thicken sauce with cornstarch for gravy.

Best served with spaetzle. For the meal we photographed, we weren't able to find spaetzle at the store (and we didn't want to make it ourselves that day), so we served it with gnocchi, which works, but not the same. Usually you can get dehydrated spaetzle at the store, for quick german dishes, and it is pretty easy to make at home.. just time consuming.
