round steak 4" x 8" (thinly sliced - 1/8-1/4 inch thickness) (1-2 strips per person)
chopped onion (quantity according to individual taste)
chopped bacon (1-2 slices per beef strip)
chopped dill pickles (1-2 thin slices per beef strip)
beef broth ( 1 can per 3-4 people )
brown gravy mix ( package per 3-4 people)
Put chopped (uncooked) bacon, onion & pickles on top of round steak strips, roll tightly and skewer with a couple of tooth picks to keep together. Spray skillet with cooking spray & brown both sides. Heat beef broth & brown gravy mix in pot. Place browned meat into a cooking pan and pour broth/gravy over meat making sure it is immersed at least 75% or more. (I add mushrooms to the gravy). Cook in the oven for about 45 minutes to an hour at approx 350 degrees. After cooking save the gravy to pour over the meat and spetzel, noodles, dumplings or potatoes you may want to serve with it.
Notes: The second time you make this, make adjustments on portions based upon your first attempt. Increase cooking time for lower temperatures. (some suggest simmering in broth/gravy for 2 hours which may result in a more tender meat)
