Polish roulade or zrazy (ZRRAH-zih) is a very common main course dating back to 14th-century nobility. There are a myriad of varieties with just as many different fillings, including mushrooms, sauerkraut, herbs, and bread crumbs with horseradish.
This zrazy recipe uses beef, pickles, ham, and green onions, and can be prepared on the stovetop or in a slow cooker. But no matter how it is cooked, zrazy always tastes better the next day, so plan ahead.
8 sandwich steaks
1 tablespoon grainy mustard, or to taste
2 dill pickles, cut into thin strips
4 ounces ham, cut into thin strips
2 green onions, white and light green parts, cut into thin strips
4 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup beef stock
4 tablespoons white wine
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
Sour cream, for garnish
Chopped parsley, for garnish
Steps to Make It
Spread a thin layer of mustard on each steak and divide the pickles, ham, and onion among the steaks. Fold in the sides and roll like stuffed cabbage. Secure with a toothpick, if necessary.
Heat oil in a large Dutch oven and brown beef rolls on all sides. Remove meat and reserve.
Add flour to the pan and cook until light brown to make a roux. Stir in the stock, wine, tomato paste, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil and simmer 1 minute.
Return beef rolls to the pan and spoon over some of the sauce. Cover and cook on low 45 minutes to 1 hour, adding more liquid as necessary during cooking.
When the rolls are cooked, transfer to a serving dish and remove the toothpicks, if used, and ladle over the sauce. Dollop with sour cream and chopped parsley.
Serve with rice, mashed potatoes, finger dumplings, or drop potato dumplings.
