Sauerbraten is one of Germany's national dishes - beef round marinated for three days and then slowly braised.
Absolutely fantastic! I had a craving for sauerbraten and decided to go with this recipe and my husband and I loved it! I must admit, I was a little skeptical of the gingersnaps, but this ingredient made the recipe outstanding. The meat came out very tender and the sauce was fantastic. I'm going to forward this recipe on to my family and friends. I recommend serving with potato pancakes w/ applesauce & sour cream and red cabbage. Thank you so much!! - 13 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I served this to my husband and parents, and everyone raved about it! I made a few minor changes. I used cider vinegar instead. Also I used half the amount of butter, and it was still very rich. Oh, and I loved it with the gingersnaps! I found it very easy to marinate inside a ziplock freezer bag. I just flipped it over once a day. - 03 Oct 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
It doesn't get any better than this! Make sure you marinate your meat for the full three days. Your taste buds will thank you for this authentic recipe! Thanks Jean. - 27 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
