Welcome to Home Pressure Cooking!  I love the diversity of cooking in the Instant Pot. These Rouladen rolls are by far one of our most favorite. I truly think the cut of meat is intended to be made in the Instant Pot. My husband even said if and when someone makes this recipe they won’t be disappointed and it will be a favorite. I agree. We even went on Facebook live together to create this meal. You can view that live-action HERE.

What is Rouladen? Rouladen is a German meat dish, usually consisting of bacon, onions, mustard and pickles wrapped in thinly sliced beef which is then cooked. My husband tweaked it some and instead of using bacon, we used prosciutto. We put a little Italian twist on the rolls..

For this recipe, you will need Flank steak, dill pickles, onions, mustard, tomato, wine, Beef bourguignon packet (or equivalent) beef bouillon will work, and prosciutto.

One package of flank steak gave us 10 rolls.

You want to be sure to tenderize the flank steaks first.

How to make Rouladen in the Instant Pot

There was nothing complicated about this dish. In fact, while the beef rolls are cooking, is when I made some egg noodles on the stovetop.
