"Today a nonstick fry pan works well, but just
as in the 30s, a black cast iron one is great, too. Thicken the gravy
with flour if desired."
Recipe serves 4-5
Notes: "With the prairie sloughs dried up and little snow in the winter, there were very few wild birds in the worst years of the 30s. Stuffed, thinly pounded less-tender cuts of beef made an adequate substitute.
Some books called for flank steak, other for round steak. Veal birds are similar, Rouladen, a German dish, is made with meat spread with mustard and wrapped around dill pickle spears.
In many regions of Canada, venison, moose and caribou were used in place of beef. In Newfoundland, savory seasons the stuffing and salt pork tops the meat rolls."
