For the Filling:
  • 100 g bush beans cut into 5 cm wide pieces
  • Salt
  • 1 twig savory
  • 100 g carrots cut into 5 cm long sticks
  • 1 pinch of sugar
  • 8 small tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 16 thin slices of smoked bacon
For the roulades:
  • 8 beef roulades 160-180 g each
  • Salt, fresh milled pepper
  • Kitchen string
  • 6 tblsp. vegetable oil for frying
  • 3 tblsp. tomato paste
  • 400 ml red wine
  • 400 ml beef or veal stock
  • Starch to thicken the sauce
  • 1 clove
  • 2 allspice seeds
  • 8 pepper corns
  • 1 bay leaf
First blanch the beans in salt water and quench them in ice water. Put them into a cook-proof plastic bag and season with salt and savory.

Put the carrot stick into a bag also and season with a pinch of salt and sugar. Vacuum both vegetable bags at 100%. Cook the carrots and beans in a fusionchef at 176 °F / 80 °C water temperature for 30 minutes. Quench in ice water.
When the vegetables are ready, you can fill the roulades. Roll the beef out and pat it dry. Spread thinly with mustard. Put 2 slices of bacon on each roulade. Remove the vegetables from the bag and spread on the roulades. Fold the edges inward and roll up the roulades. Shape and tie with butcher’s string. Season with salt and pepper, heat the oil in a roaster and sear on all sides. Remove from the roaster and let them cool in the refrigerator. In the meantime time roast the tomato puree and deglaze with a bit of red wine. Repeat this process several times. Then add the veal stock, finely ground the spices in a mortar and add them to the stock. Let the stock reduce by half, cool and vacuum together with the roulades in equal portions. Vacuum the roulades at 100%.

Cook in the fusionchef water bath at 152 °F / 67 °C  for approximately 37 hours. Cool in ice water and refrigerate.

For serving: heat the bags, pour the stock from the bag into a small pan, reduce a bit and bind with a bit of creamed corn starch. Heat the roulades in the sauce. Do not boil. Serve and enjoy.
