Categories     main-dish

Time P2DT9h30m

Yield 8 to 10 servings

Number Of Ingredients 21

One 3-pound beef rump roast
Kosher salt
1 pound frozen chopped onions
3/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons pickling spice blend
1 tablespoon honey
8 to 10 whole black peppercorns
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup red wine, whatever type you like
1 pound boiled peeled small potatoes, for serving
Sunny's Simple Red Cabbage Kraut, recipe follows
4 cups beer (your favorite beer, as long as it's not too chocolatey dark)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon mesquite liquid smoke
4 cloves garlic, grated on a rasp grater or finely minced
4 whole black peppercorns
1/2 cup thinly sliced Vidalia onions
1 head red cabbage, thinly sliced


  • For the marinade: Season the beef on all sides with salt. Place in a large plastic bag (turkey bag!) and add the onions, red wine vinegar, pickling spice blend, honey, peppercorns and 1 cup water. Marinate, refrigerated, for 2 days.
  • For the sauerbraten: Remove the beef from the marinade and reserve the marinade. Pat the beef dry. Sprinkle the flour on all sides of the beef. In a large pan on high heat, add the oil. When it begins to swirl and smoke, add the beef. Sear on all sides to a deep golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes; don't forget the ends!
  • Add the beef to a slow cooker and pour in the reserved marinade and red wine. Cook on low for 8 hours, until the meat is tender but not falling apart.
  • Remove the beef, tent loosely with foil and rest for 10 minutes. Turn the slow cooker to high and reduce the liquid slightly, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Slice the beef and serve with the sauce, boiled potatoes and Sunny's Simple Red Cabbage Kraut.
  • To a large pan with straight sides or a stockpot, add the beer, sugar, vinegar, red pepper flakes, liquid smoke, garlic and peppercorns. Turn the heat to medium high and stir to dissolve the sugar. Stir in the onions and cabbage and bring the mixture to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is tender, 35 to 45 minutes. Serve warm or chilled.

Traditional Sauerbraten image

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.

This doesn't have the gingersnaps, and we eat it over buttered egg noodles. I can make it in as little as 25 minutes in the pressure cooker, or leave it in the crock pot all day. My family likes it best out of the oven though. Thanks, "Best of Bridge" ladies.

Best Ever Sauerbraten image

This is the recipe that we made at home when I was growing up. My Dad loved it so much that we would make a double recipe and freeze half for another meal...we always ate this with pickled sweet and sour red cabbage and home made potato dumplings. We also added extra gingersnaps to the gravy cuz we like it on the sweeter side...keep tasting to your preference! The recipe is from an old cookbook called something like "how to please your husband." Don't hold that against the recipe though - it is sure to please everyone!

Provided by Martha Stewart

Categories     Food & Cooking     Ingredients     Meat & Poultry     Beef Recipes

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 four- to five-pound top or bottom round of beef
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons canola oil
4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
2 large onions, thinly sliced
2 bay leaves
4 tablespoons tomato paste
1/4 cup ketchup
1 cup red-wine vinegar
2 cups red wine, such as burgundy
1/4 cup sour cream


  • Season beef well with salt and pepper. Tie meat tightly every 2 inches with kitchen twine, and once from end to end, to help keep meat intact. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large, heavy casserole over medium heat. Brown meat evenly on all sides, including the ends. Transfer to a plate, and set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium low, add remaining 2 tablespoons oil, garlic, and onions. Cook, stirring often, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add bay leaves, tomato paste, ketchup, red-wine vinegar, and red wine. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Return beef to pot, and add 2 cups water. (The liquid should come halfway up the side of the beef.) Cover with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce heat to simmer. Cook for 1 hour, turn beef, and continue to cook until fork-tender, another 1 1/2 hours.
  • Remove pot from heat. Let cool slightly, and transfer beef to a cutting board with a well. Remove twine, and let beef rest for 15 minutes. Skim the fat from the surface of the sauce in the casserole. Taste the sauce, and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Stir in sour cream. Slice meat across the grain into 1/4-inch slices. Place meat back into sauce. Transfer to a large serving platter; ladle over sauce. Serve immediately.

Quick Steak Sauerbraten image

I love Sauerbraten, but it takes way too long to make. This recipe is inspired by the recipe "Skirt Steak Sauerbraten" in the November of the Rachael Ray Magazine. I tweaked the recipe a bit using london broil (though skirt steak or flank steak are options)then I broiled the meat to cut down on the fat rather then pan frying it. I also added a 1/2 tsp of jarred beef demi glace to the sauce as it was cooking to add deeper flavor, but it is not necessary. This recipe is terrific either way.

1 lb egg noodles

Old-World Sauerbraten image

Meet the Cook: The secret to this sauerbraten is that it doesn't require marinating. I've been making it for 20 years now. It's an excellent family dinner, and you can also serve it to company along with potato pancakes, red cabbage and applesauce. My husband and I have three grown sons and a grandson. Cooking's my favorite hobby, but I'm an avid flea-market and antique shopper, too. -Phyllis Berenson, Cincinnati, Ohio
