Stuffed Roll of Beef

If you don't feel like stuffing your roll of beef, then just order a roll of beef from your butcher, which will come already rolled and tied with string. You can take about 50 - 60 minutes off the cooking time if it isn't stuffed. If you want to stuff it, then tell your butcher not to roll it but to send the cooking elastic bands so that you can roll it yourself. You can either ask your butcher to rub only one side of the meat with Greek/Roast Beef spice. The stuffing should then be placed on the side that is not spiced. When you roll the beef, the spiced side must be on the outside. You can also make your own spice rub as per recipe below. Once I'm making the spice up, I like to double or even triple up on the spice recipe and keep what I don't use in an airtight jar.


  • Prep Time : 25 min
  • Cook Time : 3 hour
  • Ready Time : 3 hour, 25 min




  • 4 - 5 lbs roll of beef (Brisket or top rib flap works well)
  • 4 large potatoes and 2 large onions* cut into 1/4's and drizzled in oil

Dry Rub

  • 1 teaspoon each dried sage, thyme, oregano, mustard powder, crushed black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and onion powder and dried ginger
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili powder


  • 2 medium onions finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup oil / Shmaltz
  • 2 8 oz. packages sliced mushrooms
  • 8 fresh sage leaves finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 1/2 cup cornflake/bread crumbs
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • salt and pepper to taste


For the stuffing -

1. Fry onions in oil until golden brown. (Browning the onions gives it that special taste)

2. Add mushrooms, sage and parsley and allow most of liquid from the mushrooms to evaporate.

3. Add cooled stock and cornflake crumbs and mix well.

4. The stuffing should be quite firm (you may need to add a little more cornflake/bread crumbs)as it will soften with the juices given off by the meat during cooking.

5. Add salt and pepper to taste.

6. Spice once side of the roast with homemade spice rub if it hasn’t been pre-spiced by butcher by rubbing the outside of the meat with a little oil and rubbing in spice rub.

7. Place stuffing onto the unspiced side of your meat.

8. Roll meat up and place cooking elastics around it to secure the roll. If stuffing oozes out while rolling, just stuff it back in! That’s why it’s called stuffing!!

9. Place into a transparent roasting bag and carefully place oil-drizzled potatoes and onions (cut in ¼’s) “on the side” !

10. Roast in a preheated oven (350 F) for 1 hour, then reduce heat to 300 and continue to cook for a further 2 hours. It may take a little longer as it is stuffed and no two pieces of meat are the same size. This cut of meat can be cooked a little longer rather than shorter. The meat and vegetables should be golden brown.

*1/4′d onions can be replaced with baby onions

  1. Thank you Graciela, yes it really makes for easy Shabbos and Yomtov cooking when using a cut of beef that enjoys long slow cooking whilst still keeping all the flavours and moisture in the cooking bag.

  2. I made this and it was fantastic!

  3. Thank you Cindy so happy! Chag Sameach, have a wonderful Purim.

  4. Can this stuffing be used for chickens? Tx

  5. Hi Sheryl,Yes it can. If you haven’t spiced the outside of the chicken with some rosemary, then you could add a touch of rosemary to the stuffing. It goes so well with chicken. Have a good Yomtov and well over the fast.
