Roulades Of Beef Recipe

Roulades of Beef have a long and rich history, with variations of the dish appearing in many different cuisines around the world. The term "roulade" comes from the French word "rouler," which means "to roll." This technique of rolling meat has been used for centuries as a way to add flavor and create an elegant presentation.

Fun fact: Roulades were a popular dish in medieval Europe, particularly in France and Germany. They were often made with various meats, including beef, pork, and poultry, and were filled with a variety of ingredients such as herbs, vegetables, and cheese.

To make this delicious Roulades of Beef recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

- 1/2 lb. Fillet of Beef
- 1/2 lb. Cold Boiled Bacon
- 1 Egg
- 1 1/2 oz. Dripping
- 1/2 pint Gravy
- Pepper and Mustard
- 2 oz. Crumbs

Total Cost: 1s. 3d.

Time: 10 Minutes

1. Start by trimming away any excess fat from the fillet of beef. Cut it into very small, thin slices to make it easier to roll later on. Similarly, cut the cold boiled bacon into smaller, thin slices as well.

2. After you have prepared the beef and bacon, spread a layer of mustard and pepper on one side of the beef slices. This will add a nice flavor to the roulades.

3. Next, place a slice of bacon on top of the mustard and pepper-covered beef slice. Then, starting from one end, roll up the beef as tightly as possible. Repeat this process with the remaining beef and bacon slices.

4. Once all the beef and bacon slices are rolled up, beat an egg and mix it with a spoonful of water. Brush this egg wash over the rolls, ensuring they are evenly coated.

5. In a frying pan, heat the dripping until it becomes quite hot. Carefully place the roulades in the pan and fry them until they achieve a good color on all sides. The cooking time will vary depending on how well-done you prefer your beef.

6. Once the roulades are cooked to your liking, transfer them onto a hot dish and remove the small skewers that were used to hold them together.

7. Prepare a hot gravy by either making a fresh one or using any pre-made brown sauce you have available in your pantry. Season and flavor the gravy according to your preference. Then, pour the hot gravy over the roulades, ensuring they are generously coated.

It is worth noting that Roulades of Beef can be served alongside various side dishes. Some popular options include mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or a simple green salad.
