PostHeaderIcon Rullader with Onion and Wine Sauce


Swedish flagRullader is simply browned small rolled pork and is extremely delicious in my opinion (and the family) but what made it really special was the sauce that was just full of flavor. This was our Sunday dinner today along with Crash Hot Potatoes from The Pioneer Woman’s website and a simple fresh fruit salad of watermelon, cantaloupe melon and grapes.

Makes 20 rullader, serves 5-6

  • 2 1/2 lb. bonless pork roast
  • salt/pepper


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 T karo syrup
  • 1 T bouillion (Better Than Bouillion)
  • 1/4 C red wine
  • 2 C water
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Do this:

Cut pork into 1/4″ slices cutting across the meat. Pound with a meat tenderizer on both side of each peice. Roll tightly securing with 2 toothpicks and brown both sides in oil until dark brown. Place browned rullader on platter and cover to keep warm while you make the sauce. Reserve any oil and browned bits in the pan and saute the onions until translucent. Drizzle onions with Karo syrup and let boil for a couple of minutes then add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes to evaporate the wine’s alcohol adding more water as necessary. Thicken sauce with a tablespoon of flour (Wondra) and pour over rullader.

Swedish Rhubarb & Strawberry Pie

Swedish Rhubarb & Strawberry Pie

Swedish FlagWhile doing some yard work today I noticed that our rhubarb was ready so after I finished some yard work I just  had to cut some of it for a Swedish pie!. This is my mother-in-law’s pie dough recipe so it is straight from Sweden and it is absolutely my most favorite fruit pie! You must make this pie!! Like right now!
This is a very versatile recipe in that you can use any fruit such as apples, blueberries or strawberries using 2-3 cups of the fruit of your choice.
I have to to tell you that this pie turned out so good that I’m going out to the kitchen to get another piece right now 😀


  • 1 C flour
  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 4 oz. BUTTER (do not use margarine)
  • 1 egg


  • 2 C rhubarb cut is 1 inch pieces
  • 1 C fresh strawberries, quartered
  • 1/2 sugar
  • 2 T flour


Vanilla Sauce* or whipped cream

Do this:

Allow butter to soften a bit then cream with electric mixer. Add the sugar, flour and egg and mix until blended. Moisten fingers (it’s sticky) and press into lightly greased pie pan. 

Combine cut rhubarb and quarted strawberries with the sugar and flour using a rubber spatula. Pour into pie pan and bake 55-60 minutes at 350º preheated oven. 

Cool completely before serving. Top individual servings with whipped cream or Vanilla Sauce. We use Ekström’s Instant Vanilla Sauce and can be purchased online or in Sweden if you just happen to be there. 😛
*You may substitute instant vanilla pudding mix but thin it so it can be poured over each individual serving.
