Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 slices bacon
  • 2 lbs round steaks (tenderized)
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 cup dill pickle slices, drained
  • 3 tablespoons instant minced onion
  • 1 (1 ounce) package brown gravy mix


  1. Bacon goes under steak, one slice under each end and one under center, straight up and down.
  2. Lay steak lengthwise on top of bacon.
  3. Salt and pepper lightly.
  4. Spread mustard over entire surface of steak.
  5. Sprinkle chopped pickles and onion over entire steak.
  6. Fold bacon in at edges and then roll tightly jelly roll fashion, seam side down. Place in ungreased baking dish (if too long, cut in half).
  7. Bake at 400° until bacon and meat start to brown.
  8. Mix gravy in warm tap water and mix with meat juices that have formed.
  9. Bake at 325° to 350° until tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Can be covered with foil and basted with the gravy every now and then for more tenderness.
  10. Slice and serve with rice or potatoes.
