VERY GOOD!!! but it is time consuming so this is a perfect special occasion meal. Maybe an anniversary or birthday... Maybe an impressive dinner party such as in-laws, business, friends etc...
Fry bacon until crisp ... drain on paper towel. set aside.

DO NOT CLEAN SKILLET.
use hand to crumble bacon... put in cabbage mixture. add dill pickle relish and mix everything well.
cut steak into 4 pieces. pound steak with a mallet. place plastic wrap over the steak. flip it over and pound the other side. use a paint brush and put a very thin layer of Dijon mustard on the upside of the steak. put about a palm size amount of the cabbage mixture.
starting at the small end of the steak, roll the steak tightly around the cabbage mixture. tie the meat bundles with cooking twine.
put a splash of oil in the pan where cabbage was cooked. fry the meat bundles until they are browned on the outside. take them out of the skillet once brown.
add carrots, celery, and onions.
stir veggies to semi soft. deglaze skillet by adding 1/4 cup red wine and when hot again add canned tomatoes. add sugar to cut through the tart/ acidic taste.
place meat bundles back in sauce and look cook for 45 minutes.
taste sauce to see if it needs s&p
steak should be very tender.
