“My father took an old german recipe he found in a Taste of Home Magazine and converted it from beef to venison. You can use beef round steak or cubed steak. Venison naysayers loved this and could not believe that it was venison. We have converted many a person. The vinegar from the pickle tenderizes the meat to perfection.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut steak into six serving-size pieces; pound to 1/4-in. thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place a bacon strip down the center of each piece; arrange a pickle half on one edge. Roll up and secure with a toothpick. In a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown beef on all sides. Add water, onion, parsley and bouillon if desired. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is tender. Remove to a serving platter and keep warm. For gravy, skim fat from drippings. Combine flour, cold water and browning sauce; stir into drippings. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with beef. Yield: 6 servings.
