Dill Pickle Roast

Dill Pickle Roast

This Dill Pickle Roast is sure to become family favourite.

I first heard about Dill Pickle Roasts from my friend Sherry and it sounded like something we would enjoy. After trying it we agreed, it was amazing and was a reminder of Rouladen, a dish I make often.

Rouladen is it a traditional German dish made with thin cut beef, with a layer of bacon all wrapped around dill pickles then browned in a pan then simmered in the oven.

Because I live about 60kms to any grocery store I will make due with what I have on hand. If I am low on bacon I will place it in the roaster under the pickles, other times I will wrap the roast. Both ways turn out beautifully.

Dill Pickle Roast


Dill Pickle Roast
  • Outside or Inside Round Beef roast
  • 1 - 1 liter jar of Dill Pickles
  • 1 package of bacon
  • beef broth
  • pepper
  • garlic
  1. Season the beef with pepper and garlic.
  2. Cover the roast with strips of bacon or layer the bacon in the roaster.
  3. Pour a 1-liter jar of dill pickles over and around the roast.
  4. If more liquid is needed add some beef broth
  5. Roast at 350F until cooked to your preferred doneness medium is 134F - !40F


The jus in the roasting pan will have a strong pickle flavour, if you are looking for a more traditional beef gravy you will have to make one on the side.

The pickles will be tender and full of flavour, be sure to serve them alongside the roast. I use homemade pickles which often include carrots. I include those as well as the garlic and dill from the pickles.

Perfect served with mashed potatoes!
