This recipe for Polish Hussar stuffed beef roast or pieczen huzarska (PEEYEH-chen hoo-ZAHR-skah) gets its name from the light cavalry of late-15th century Europe. My guess is, as with steak tartare, the cavalry rode with tough cuts of beef under their saddles to be tenderized by the day's riding. Traditional directions given below call for braising, but I prefer to cook in a slow cooker until tender. Then I sear the meat in a pan with hot oil to caramelize it before I stuff it and finish in the oven. Here's a larger photo of Polish Hussar Stuffed Beef Roast or Pieczen Huzarska.
