Sprinkle in the flour and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the strained marinade and the remaining 1 cup broth and bring to a simmer. Return the meat to the pot, cover and cook in the oven until tender, 2 hours 30 minutes.

"THE WHOLE FAMILY helped prepared this sauerbraten. We children had fun mixing the spices and pounding them on the hearth, then Dad mixed them with salt and rubbed them into the meat. The tantalizing aromas escalated as the sauerbraten cooked.

I found two slightly different hand written versions of this, my Grandmother's recipe. Born in Nekkar am Rhein in the 1904, she naturally learned to cook traditional German meals as a young woman and didn't rely on a cookbook. I try to capture the nuance in this. Serve with potato dumplings.

TRADITIONAL BAVARIAN BEEF SAUERBRATEN
From Dean & Deluca. Sauerbraten is, quite simply, the best pot roast that we know of. Though we normally stay away from top round as a braising beef -- because it's so relatively lean -- we like to use it for sauerbraten, which requires intact slices of beef to be served at the table. Top round keeps its shape very well, and, in this dish, comes to the table quite moist -- due to the long marination and the long cooking time. To insure the moistness of the beef, have the butcher leave a thin outer covering of fat around the top round. Variation: For a "sweet" sauerbraten you can add raisins and/or gingerbread (lebkuchen) to the gravy. Serving Suggestion: Serve this deep, dark, sweet-and-sour treat with red cabbage recipe #108449 and boiled new potatoes (salzkartoffel) or spaetzle. Serves 4

- In a medium saucepan combine vinegar, 1 1/2 cups of the red wine, and the onions. Wrap the parsley stems, peppercorns, bay leaves, and cloves in a double layer of cheesecloth and tie shut. Add this to the saucepan, and bring mixture to a boil. Turn off the heat, and cool to room temperature.
- Prick the top round on all sides with a fork. Put it into a large resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over it. Close bag and turn upside down a few times to cover meat well with marinade. Marinate, turning the bag once or twice a day, for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.
- When ready to cook, bring marinated beef to room temperature, about 2 hours. Remove beef from marinade and pat dry. Strain marinade, reserving the liquid and onions; discard the cheesecloth bag.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Combine the flour, salt, and black pepper on a large plate, mixing well.
- Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy, ovenproof pan with a lid, large enough to hold the roast, over moderately high heat. When the oil is hot but not smoking, dredge meat in flour mixture, then sear well on each side, about 5 minutes per side. Pour extra fat out of pan.
- Place 1 cup of the marinating liquid, the remaining 1/4 cup red wine, and tomatoes in the pan along with the reserved onions from the marinade. Add enough of the water so that the liquid comes about one third of the way up the side of the beef. Bring liquid to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Cover beef pan with the lid, and braise in the oven, turning sauerbraten every 30 minutes or so and spooning braising liquid over it, until meat is very tender, about 3 hours. Remove beef from pan and keep warm, covered with foil.
- Strain and degrease the braising liquid, and discard the solids. Place the braising liquid in a small saucepan, and add the remaining marinade along with the sherry and the 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Boil the liquid until it is reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Add the additional brown sugar, if desired, and/or lemon juice to taste. Adjust seasoning.
- Carve roast against the grain into slices that are about 3/8 inch thick. Arrange slices on a serving platter, spoon sauce over them, and garnish with parsley sprigs. Top with a dollop of sour cream, if desired.

Whatever Oktoberfest revelers end up eating, they usually wash it down with lots of German beer. Sauerbraten, or sour roast, takes at least two days to marinate in vinegar and spices. Serve with spaetzle dumplings, made from scratch, or hot German potato salad.

Top Asked Questions
Is there a good German sauerbraten recipe?Here is a recipe for Sauerbraten that is pretty decent. However, this is more like a project. I know real Germans who approve of this recipe. In large saucepan over medium heat, combine cider vinegar, water, brown sugar, cloves, allspice, salt, pepper, peppercorns, bay leaf, onion, carrot and celery.
How long do you marinate Sauerbraten?The meat is marinated for anywhere from 2 to 10 days in a mixture of red wine, vinegar, and spices to both tenderize and flavor the meat, since traditionally the cuts of meat used for sauerbraten like rump roast are tougher than other choice cuts of meat.
What can I substitute for red wine vinegar in Sauerbraten?You can add 1 teaspoon of juniper berries to the marinade if you wish. Apple cider vinegar can be substituted for the red wine vinegar. I'll often use a mix of butter and light olive oil for browning the meat. If you don't like your Sauerbraten too sour, add 2 cups of broth instead of using any reserved marinade for the cooking stage.
Is Sauerbraten worth the time?But, it's SO good and SO worth the time. What cut of meat is used for Sauerbraten? Usually beef, such as a boneless beef chuck roast, a rump roast, or a top round roast is used for sauerbraten.
