One of the things I really enjoy about this time of year is getting back into cooking really hearty meals, especially for a Sunday dinner. On Sunday just gone, I was cooking beef olives, a dish that you never really hear of any more in Ireland or the UK but which is really popular in Germany.
The first time I ate it was on my second visit to Germany with The Bavarian. His mother cooked them for us for Sunday lunch and I was hooked. Luckily my big fat German cookbook, a present from my au pair family years ago, has a great recipe for beef olives (Rinderrouladen in German), so I quickly learnt to make them myself.
Per person you need:
One escalope of beef (approx. 200g)
Salt and ground ground black pepper
1/2 tsp mustard
3 slices of streaky bacon, very thinly sliced
1 cornichon or 1/2 a gherkin, sliced lengthwise thinly
3-4 slices of onion in rings
Take a look at my little video to see how to cook the recipe.

Oooh this looks delicious and I love your vlog! #TastyTuesdays
Fab video and delicious recipe. Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays x
Oh thank you. They are really tasty and quite easy once you get the hang of the rolling.
Thanks Vicki. I think I'm developing a taste for video work.
Ooo yummy! I love making beef stews in this cold weather! The smell of the slow cooker that has been o all day. Delicious! Thanks so much for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
Oh lovely, Lisa. We don't have a slow cooker but it would be great for this recipe. Roll them up, pop them in and you're sorted 🙂
Lovely vlog! These look great, not something I've ever tried (or heard of!), but I'm sure my husband and kids would love it! It's great to get different meal ideas, we always have the same meals and it gets boring after a while! 🙂 x
Thanks so much for linking up to #HowtoSunday
Thanks Jenny. They are a real comfort food here. I had never heard of them before coming to Germany but my mother knew of them when I mentioned them. There is a bit more prep work than with a roast, but they are delicious.
