An older lady I work for just made some for us a few weeks ago. She's from Germany or some place over there.
I got quite the racket going when it comes to food.

Sometimes, whatever you do comes out right. The summer zi got home from service in Germany, I decided to cook saurbratten for some friends.
I followed a recipe and the meal came out perfectly. Just luck, I'd say.

Great dish, indeed! and I want to save the recipe!

Look what I found..oh well, I just had to go and check it out.


Several sources believe sauerbraten was invented by Charlemagne who died in 814 A.D. The recipe was used as a means of using up leftover roasted meat. Albert of Cologne, in the 13th century, a man, like Charlemagne, much interested in foods and gardening, used the recipe with fresh meat. I have my doubts about this story.

Sauerbraten is a German speciality (‘sour roast’), consisting beef roast marinated for several days in a sour/sweet marinade of vinegar and/or beer and spices (cloves, bay leaves, peppercorns, onions, etc.), and then brasied in the marinade. Crumbled Gingersnap cookie crumbs are frequently used to thicken the pan juices.
