Beef Birds

Sprinkle some paprika on the pieces. Sprinkle about a 1/4 t dry mustard on each piece. Ground pepper. In each bird, put a dill pickle, sliced, several long slices of carrot and some pieces onion. Roll and secure with tooth picks. Sprinkle flour on all sides and brown in butter in a frying pan. Brown on all sides. I use a can of Campbell's Beefy Mushroom soup, but you could make your own gravy, too, or something similar. I use one can soup and one can water and simmer, covered, on low for as long as I can. I add more water/wine if needed or remove the cover to boil and concentrate the "gravy". They are best with mashed potatoes or spaetazle, and especially good with crumbled bacon on top!
