German Buffalo Wings
Chicken Wings in Sauerbraten Sauce

German Buffalo Wings

These wonderful addictive wings have the toothsome quality of a good crisp Buffalo WIng, with the nice Tart and Tangy Spicy kick of a hopped up Sauerbraten gravy. A special thanks to Barb Rokitka for sending me the recipe

Combine water, vinegars, bay leaf, peppercorns, cloves, salt, onion, and lemon in saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.

Remove 1 cup marinade liquid (try not to get any solid pieces), cover, and reserve in refrigerator. Place wings in a glass dish and pour remaining marinade over. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours or overnight.


Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, or cover with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Remove wings from marinade (discard marinade), shaking a bit to remove any excess liquid. Place wings on baking sheet, sprinkle with salt, and roast in oven for 40 minutes.

Turn wings after 40 minutes. Return to oven and continue to roast for another 10-15 minutes or until wings are crispy and brown.

Towards the end of cooking, melt butter over medium heat in a saucepan. Add flour to butter, stirring until flour begins to brown (should be golden brown in color), about 3-4 minutes.

Slowly add the reserved 1 cup marinade and stock, whisking until smooth and slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Add gingersnaps, whisking until dissolved.


When wings are cooked, remove from oven to a bowl
Pour 1 cup of sauce over wings and toss. If desired, add remaining sauce (about 2/3 cup) or serve passed as dipping sauce with wings.
