Hi Uncle Phaedrus,† Iíve been searching for a beef rouladen with a
seasoned rice filling instead of the traditional pickles and bacon.†
It was served at an ethnic hall in the Akron-Canton Ohio area sometime
in the 1980ís at dances.† My late husbandís band, West Park Button
Box Band played there periodically and were hosted by a slim dark
haired mustached man who I remember as being in ethnic costume.†
I keep thinking the place was German, though the band was Slovenian.†
I also got the impression that the food was prepared by the ladies of
the club, and not commercial food.†It was great!†And always on the menu.
Thanks for your help,
I did not have much success with this search. Dill pickle and bacon are, as you say, the
traditional filling for German rouladen. I did find a few descriptions of rouladen that
mentioned rice as a possible filling, but I found no recipes with them.† We have several
German cuisine cookbooks, but there was no a rouladen or rinderouladen filled with rice
in them, just the traditional pickle and bacon. That said, I did find a few "beef rolls"
recipes that had rice in the filling on these sites:
Stuffed Sirloin Rolls
Steak and Rice Roll-ups
Hoisin Beef and Rice Roulade
I'm not very confident that these are the same thing you had, but they might be similar.
I will post this for reader input.
All 3 recipes look good, the Just a Pinch one seems near. The original must have
had some gravy or some type of browning, while the pictures on these show very
white rice. Iím going to fiddle around with the Just a Pinch. And the Hoisin
one is interesting. Will try all three. Thanks for posting it Ė a lot of people
attended these dances & dinners. Wish I could remember the name of the hall.
Band members are all gone now.
