Kurzgebratene Rouladen

Sautéed Beef Rouladen

The quick alternative to traditional Rouladen

Beef Rouladen are one of the most famous German dishes. They are one of my favorite German meat dishes too, but it takes quite some time to prep and cook them. If you love traditional Rouladen too, but you don´t have several hours to cook, this recipe could be a great alternative. This whole dish will take you less than 15 minutes, way faster than a drive to the local fast food place, and far more tasty!
