Healthy Polish Zrazy Beef Rolls Recipe


  • 2 pounds Top Sirloin Center Cut or Boston Roast, cut into 6 or 7 slices 1/4″ thick, then pounded 1/8″ thin
  • 6 or 7 slices of deli Smoked Ham or Turkey
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 large (4 ounces) Kosher Dill Pickle, julienned
  • 2 Shallots, peeled & finely chopped
  • 1 Yellow Onion, peeled & roughly chopped
  • 1/2 pound Mushrooms, cleaned & roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup White Wine
  • 1 cup Beef Broth


  • Either have your butcher do it or very carefully slice the roast lengthwise into 6 thin steaks
  • Using a kitchen mallet, pound the steaks until they are 1/8″ thick
  • Lay the seasoned steaks out flat, season with a fine sprinkling of kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • Lay one slice of smoked ham on each seasoned steak, trimming if necessary to ensure a good fit
  • Spread dijon mustard equally over the ham on each steak
  • Arrange julienned pickles at the lower portion of each steak
  • Sprinkle finely chopped shallots evenly over the remaining surface of each steak
  • Firmly roll up each steak and secure with butcher’s twine
  • Warm the coconut oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat
  • Working in batches, brown the steak rolls on all sides, then transfer to a clean plate and set aside
  • Reduce heat to medium-low, add a bit more coconut oil if needed, then add yellow onions and mushrooms to the pot, sauté for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • Deglaze with the white wine and let reduce
  • Add beef broth and bring to a gentle boil
  • Return beef rolls to the pot, arranging them in a single layer
  • Reduce the heat to medium low, cover and let simmer for 1 hour and 15 minutes, turning the rolls every 20 minutes or so to braise evenly
  • Transfer beef rolls to a warm serving plate and cover to keep warm
  • Increase heat to medium high and reduce the sauce until thickened, stirring very frequently for around 4 or 5 minutes, then remove from heat
  • Remove twine from beef rolls, then pour sauce over them and serve
