What is a 'Hubertusrolle' when it's at home?

So I bought some meaty gubbins called "Hubertusrolle" on a whim the other day - they were 25% off (close to sell-by date) and I liked the look of them. Figured I could google how to cook them once I got home, but google's not turning up much. Have I stumbled onto a very local specialty, or do they usually go under another name, or...?

They are called "Hubertusrolle / Roluleaux St-Hubert" and they look to consist of ground beef, wrapped in ground pork, wrapped in bacon, with spices and mustard somewhere in it (according to the ingredient list) and chopped herbs sticking all over the ends. Each roll is about 3cm diameter and 4cm long.


Anybody seen these before? How do you normally cook them? I've shoved them into the oven for now, on the theory that they most resemble a species of miniature meatloaf... but it's not too late to haul them out and do something else with them, if only I knew what.

I think I would have fried it, they might dry out in the oven.

What time are you planning to sit down to eat?

Re: What is a 'Hubertusrolle' when it's at home?

Actually I had them in a frying pan first, then changed my mind and bunged them in the oven. I was afraid they wouldn't cook all the way through, as thick as they are.

I can pull them back out though and put them back in the frying pan. Should I?

(We'll eat whenever they're ready... had some tea and soda bread already to keep us going.)

Do what you think is best, maybe add a little liquid so as they don't dry out in the oven. I'm a stove-top girl.

(I was hoping for an invite! Nothing but toxic waste in my fridge. )

Re: What is a 'Hubertusrolle' when it's at home?

Update: I found some more of these in the Volg last week (long after St. Hubert's day - unless there are two Sts. Hubert?) and we had them for pre-Thanksgiving nibbles.

Oven was full of "Alpentruthahn" AKA "turkey for two" AKA guinea hen, so I did them in a frying pan this time, and they are yummy that way too.

(Still curious about the name / exact composition / possibility of making from scratch though...)

Re: What is a 'Hubertusrolle' when it's at home?

Hmmmm - sounds suspiciously like some kind of roulade I'd season with whatever takes your fancy, place in a smallish oven-proof dish, add a knob of butter, a slosh of red wine, maybe some mushrooms, chopped onion, garlic, turn the oven up to around 160° and then let them smoulder away for about 40 mins or until more or less done, serve with buttery noodles

P.S. When in doubt, I always add red wine and cook in oven, can't go much wrong on that

And it was all delicious, I might add!

It looks like what makes a Hubertusrolle a Hubertusrolle (and not just an ordinary Roulade) is that it contains mushrooms and pork "Mett" and is wrapped in lean pork belly. Since you can't get Mett in Switzerland, you'll have to make do with pork bratwurst meat. I'd make a duxelles, mix it with the bratwurst, and wrap it in some flat meat. Maybe the butcher shop whose name starts with an H in the next village south of you can get you something practical. Then I'd roast the whole mess in the oven.
