I am always looking for new things to do with beef. I make a killer pot roast with gravy, but I wanted to change things up a bit. Since my husband loves German foods, I immediately thought of Sauerbraten. I have made this several times, since my ex-husband is a redneck..oops...I mean avid hunter, and would like me to prepare deer roasts in this manner. (Poor Bambi! No, I don't eat game. No offense to those of you who do! )
So I thought I would surprise Dan with this German dish using real beef, since we don't do the whole hunting thing here. Making Sauerbraten is a process...It takes a few days. The meat must be marinated in a vinegar based mixture for 2-3 days, which allows the meat to become super-tender and get that great, sour flavor that the dish is named for. Imagine the most tender, delicious pot roast but with an unexpected yet savory tang...That, my friends, is what you get with Sauerbraten!
Needless to say, Dan was ecstatic and absolutely loved this meal. I served the Sauerbraten with red-skin mashed potatoes and glazed baby carrots. It was fantastic! Of course you can go full on German and serve pickled red cabbage, sauerkraut, beets, or boiled potatoes with it as well.
