This is an old holiday favorite of my best friend's family. They make it every year. His family calls them pigs, but I think it is some variation of beef rouladen anyway, it's certainly delicious! I throw them in the slow cooker for about 5 hours instead of cooking them on the stove top for 3.

How to Make Bob's Pigs in Blankets

Step-by-Step

  • 1Partially freeze round steak. Trim off fat
  • 2Cut up meat into 3/4" to 1" strips about 3 inches long. Pound strips to 1/8" thickness.
  • 3Lay out strips on table, springle lightly with pepper and onion salt. Cut bacon in half legnthwise and then about 2 to 3 inches long. Lay a piece of bacon on each strip of round steak. Roll each strip up, end to end fairly tightly and push toothpick through to secure.

  • 5Dice onion and cook in pot until slightly glassy and add sifted flour. Add water stirring slowly to start gravy.
  • 6Then put pigs back in pot. Add water to cover pigs and simmer 2 to 3 hours. Add flour or cornstarch to thicken gravy and kitchen bouquet to darken.
