'Zrazy' - the beef roulade



  • beef (preferably rump cut)
  • several dried mushrooms
  • 2 onions
  • 3 pickled cucumbers
  • slice of rye bread
  • several slices of smoked bacon
  • 3 tablespoons Maggi Seasoning


  • grainy mustard
  • flour
  • salt
  • pepper



Slice meat, tenderise and add salt. Cut onions into eights, mushrooms into strips, cucumbers lengthwise, and cut a slice of bread into as many parts as there are slices of beef. Stir-fry the onions, cucumbers and bread in oil. Spread the slices of meat with mustard on one side. Put a rasher of bacon, pieces of cucumber, onion, bread and mushrooms on top. Roll everything up in a tight roulade, tie with cotton thread, coat in flour and fry in butter. When almost ready, place the beef roulades in a dish, pour over with the prepared mushroom stock (if it is not enough, add some water). Stew in a thick-bottomed pot.

The beef roulades can be served with groats or dumplings and red cabbage.


This meal was prepared by the Village Women's Club from Dąbrowa Górnicza – Tucznawa during the 4th “Silesian Tastes Festival 2009” in Pszczyna.
