In Germany, the Sauerbraten method was often used in cooking Venison or other game, as the spices and vinegar took away the “wild” taste of the meat. Most of us make it with beef, these days, and so did Grandma Block.
You will need:
4-pound lean beef roast (Preferably rump or eye of round)
1. Heat marinating mixture to a simmer, then turn off heat. 2. Pour mixture over meat in a large bowl, and allow it to cool. Cover and refrigerate for 3-5 days. 3. Remove meat from marinade and drain fully. Strain and keep the marinade. 4. Brown the roast in enough oil to cover the bottom of the Dutch Oven. (Dredging the roast in flour before browning will help keep the oil from spattering.) 5. Slowly add 2 cups of the marinating liquid. (Save 1 C. of the liquid for the gravy.) 6. Reduce heat, cover the kettle and allow to simmer for 2 ½ hours, or until roast is tender. 7. Remove it to a large platter, keeping it warm.
