Pork roulade is a simple dish. This dish is easy to prepare as you just need to roll the thin sheet of meat around a filling to form a roll. Roulade is a French word, means “to roll” in English. My version of pork roulade takes only a few minutes to make, and the filing is just readily available in the kitchen.
Roulade is a popular dish in Europe and some countries. It is a popular dish for when sliced into medallions the pork dish looks very elegant. By the way, in order to achieve the perfect circles the meat must be thin. So, ask your butcher to trim the meat, but if you have knife skills then, you can trim the meat yourself. In some countries, roulade is filled with other types of meat. But the most common filling is cheese, fresh herbs, and nuts. You can also use apples, raisin grapes as filling.
When it comes to the cooking methods, you can roast the roulade, grill or pan fry it. Some people braised the roulade, which you can also do as long as the filling packed tightly. Anyway, I hope you find my pork roulade recipe easy to prepare for I sure have an easy time making this wonderful dish.
