Rouladen with spaetzle

The first of two holiday meals I cooked for my girlfriend’s family: rouladen with spaetzle.  I’m an outspoken fan of the cheaper cuts of beef, which are often more flavorful than the more expensive cuts; thin-slicing and pounding is one of many ways to tenderize them.  Spaetzle can be made with a specialized tool, but fortunately we found a colander with large holes that made a fine substitute.
