Croatian region of Slavonia is known for its spicy cuisine. Often waging open warfare with your daily calories intake, the specialties of this part of Croatia remind us why we take so much delight in eating, and how exciting is to try new things on the plate. The beef rolls with bacon are a dish largely inspired by Slavonian approach to prepping food, so if you intend to bring a piece of Croatia to your dining room, follow the guide below.
What You Will Need
4 larger beef chops (or 8 smaller ones)
1 Onion, medium size
4 bacon slices
Potatoes as a side-dish (gnocchi being a good alternative)
Beef Rolls with Bacon Preparation
Thoroughly process the meat with kitchen hammer, salting and peppering the chops from all sides. Cover them with mustard as well. Cut the onion on rings. As for the pickles, they should be cut on thin, small pieces.
On the one side of the chop, align the layer of onion, bacon and pickles. Roll the chop and attach the edges with toothpicks or kitchen wire. Do this to every chop you have. Take a frying pan, pour some oil in it and heat on medium flame. Thermally process the beef rolls with bacon from all the sides, then remove from the pan.
On the same oil you used to make initial roast of the rolls, put some minced onion. Return the meat into the pan and add broth of your choice. Add some more salt and pepper and cook covered for 40 minutes, occasionally putting some more broth once needed. When the meat becomes soft, pour some wine and continue cooking for additional 10 minutes without cover. The alcohol will evaporate, and you will receive your eagerly awaited rolls. Serve them with mashed potatoes or gnocchi.
