Crockpot Beef Rouladen (German Beef Rolls)

By Linda Larsen Busy Cooks Expert
Servings: 6



Crockpot Beef Rouladen is a simple German main dish recipe cooked to perfection in your crockpot. There may be other versions out there, but this is the one I like.



1-1/2 pounds round steak
1/4 cup stone ground mustard
6 slices bacon
2 onions, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 dill pickle spears, chopped
1/4 cup flour
3 tablespoons butter
1 (16 ounce) package baby carrots
1-1/2 cups beef stock or broth
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon flour
Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Method

1. Cut round steak into six pieces. Place between sheets of plastic wrap and flatten with a rolling pin. Spread each piece with some mustard and set aside.

2. In large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon and drain on paper towel; crumble and set aside. In drippings remaining in skillet sauté onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Add bell pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Remove onions and bell pepper from pan with slotted spoon. Combine with bacon and pickles in a medium bowl.

3. Divide mixture among beef pieces and roll up. Tie with kitchen string. Dredge each roll in 1/4 cup flour; shake off excess.

4. Add butter to skillet; brown beef rolls, about 1-2 minutes on each side. Place carrots in bottom of 4-6 quart slow cooker. Top with beef rolls as they brown. Pour beef over all. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours until carrots are tender and beef is very tender. Remove beef rolls from crockpot; carefully remove kitchen string. Remove carrots from crockpot using slotted spoon.

5. In small bowl combine sour cream and 1 tablespoon flour; mix well, then stir into liquid remaining in crockpot. Stir to combine, turn heat to high, and return carrots, then beef rolls to crockpot. Cook for 10-20 minutes longer until sauce thickens; season with salt and pepper. Serve carrots and beef rolls with sour cream sauce.
