Bavarian Roast Beef LaFontaine Recipe

Prep: 15 minutes | Cook: 30 minutes | Yield: 6-8 servings



  1. Pound out each round steak to 1/4″ thickness.  Cut each steak into 6 strips.  Liberally sprinkle both sides of each strip with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the flour on a plate and dredge one side of each strip in the flour.  Spread 1/2 tablespoon of spicy brown mustard over the unfloured side of each strip.  Lay a bacon half over each strip, then top the bacon with chopped onion.  Starting on the longer side of the beef strip (jellyroll style), roll each strip and secure with a toothpick.
  3. On medium-high, heat the oil in a large heavy skillet.  Brown the beef rolls on all sides.  Remove beef rolls from skillet and set aside on a plate.
  4. Heat the butter in the same skillet, add the sliced mushrooms and garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Stir in the flour until blended, then gradually stir in the 2 cups of beef broth.   Return the beef rolls to the skillet.  Reduce heat to medium low; cover and simmer for 30 minutes until tender.  Check beef at 15 minutes and add the remaining 1/4 cup of broth, if sauce is too thick.
