First Time Making Sauerbraten

There's been sporadic talk of interest in German foods here lately, so I thought I'd tackle Sauerbraten for the first time.

I chose to go with top round, which marinated for three days, then braised. On it is a ginger snap cookie gravy and a side of red cabbage with raisins, grated apple, shallots and crushed bacon.

For a while I guess I was convinced that it's one of those dishes that either needed to be ordered in a restaurant or prepared by one of my dead great grandparents lol.

The resulting flavors were outstanding, and the myth of it being a complicated dish for me has been removed.

There are things I would tweak about making it next time. I made it in a dutch oven, and I may try a crock pot, perhaps using chuck, which was a cut actually recommended to me.

I celebrate Octoberfest in my home every fall, and I typically use a very lean chuck roast for my Sauerbraten.

What you did there looks awesome. All you are missing is some potato pancakes under that beautiful gravy.

Everything has sort of a sweet and sour taste with the hint of vinegar and sugar in each component. It has a tangy taste, and usually you'll get a glisten of sweat on your forehead when eating it.

The marinade has apple cider vinegar and an array of pickling spices which gives it a very deep flavor.

That looks awesome!

Throw in some potato dumplins and I am all over that. What beer did you have with it?
