Preparation roulades

For the roulade filling, quarter the cucumbers, chop the smoked bacon and onions.
Flatten the beef roulades a little and season with salt and pepper on both sides and brush with mustard on one side. Chopped onions, cucumber and bacon on the wider side of the roulade and fold the protruding sides over it. Roll up the roulade tightly until the end.
Insert the roulade needles into the roulade to stabilize it. Chop the carrots, celery and onions and set aside. In a saucepan, fry the beef roulades on all sides in clarified butter. Then fry the vegetables and round off with tomato paste. Deglaze everything with red wine and some broth and simmer.

Turn the heat down and let the roulades simmer for 1 to 2 hours with the lid closed. Towards the end of the cooking time, check that the roulades are soft.

Tip: The dumplings and red cabbage can be prepared during the cooking process.

When the roulades are tender enough, put them out of the sauce on a plate and keep them warm. Remove the needles. Use a hand blender to turn the sauce into a homogeneous liquid, season to taste and fill up with sour cream. Put the beef roulade back into the sauce and then serve.

Preparation dumplings

Divide the buns into small cubes and melt the butter in a pan. Fry the bread cubes in the butter until golden brown. Then set aside.

Rub 2/3 of the potatoes in lukewarm water, then press them completely dry in a potato press or dumpling sack. Let the liquid run into a bowl. - This allows the potato starch to settle on the bottom.

Let the remaining potatoes (⅓) boil until soft with cold water and salt. Then use a potato masher to mash the potatoes with the boiling water. Bring the finished porridge to a boil.
Then take the grated potatoes out of the press and mix them with the settled potato starch and a little salt by hand in a bowl. Pour the mixture in three sections with the bubbly, simmering mash and mix everything with a whisk so that a smooth batter develops.

Get your hands wet and form dumplings from the dough and add the toasted buns. Then put the dumplings in boiling water, but turn the stove down a little and let the dumplings soak in hot water for 10 minutes (do not boil).

Then round off the dumplings with parsley, arrange the roulade and, if desired, serve with red cabbage.
