Rolla Pulsa (Rullepølse)
Recipe Search Request From Jeanette

The Search Request:  "My cousin is searching for a recipe to make rolla pulsa.  Do you have the recipe and can you give us some history on it?  Is it a Scandinavian recipe? It is a sandwich meat recipe and it is found under sausage, but I never thought of it as that.  It is a flank is rolled and soaked in spices.  I have never tasted it because the smell didn't appeal to me, but most people raved about it.  I think it may be a German dish, but some people think is it Scandinavian.  Thanks for your help.  Jeanette "

The Answer: After looking through many cookbooks, I turned to the Sausage Making Forum for help.  They provided this link -- Rolla Pulsa Article  -- and the recipe.  Rolla Pulsa is a Scandinavian rolled meat that can be quite time consuming to prepare.

Rolla Pulsa

6 pounds beef flank
3 pounds lean pork
4 pounds round steak or veal (the meat should be special ordered well in advance)
Spice mixture: 1 tablespoon salt, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 teaspoon ginger, 1 teaspoon allspice, 1 teaspoon salt peter, 1 tablespoon chopped onion
Spread out the beef flank. It should be about 1/8 inch thick. Put layer of spice mixture over the flank. Put layer of pork and then a layer of spice mixture over the pork. Put beef round steak on top and roll up like a jelly roll and then tie with string. Tie often. This will take lots of string. Soak in a salt brine. The brine has to have enough salt to float an egg. After soaking for 10-14 days, boil for 45 minutes. After it has been boiled, it must be pressed. Vera places a huge bread board over it and then puts a cedar chest on the bread board to weight it down. Press overnight. Wrap in foil. Slice. Serve with lefse.
