Christmas Sauerbraten Recipe Ingredients

4 pounds boneless, rolled beef chuck or round
Salt and pepper
3 cups white or cider vinegar
3 cups water
4 large onions, sliced
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
2 tablespoons sugar
10 whole cloves
All-purpose flour
2 tablespoons lard or vegetable oil
Crumbera Knepp, page 24
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 cup raisins

Christmas Sauerbraten Recipe Cooking Process

Rub beef with salt and pepper. Place in a large, stainless, glass or plastic bowl (not
aluminum). In a large saucepan, combine vinegar, water, onions, bay leaf, peppercorns,
sugar and cloves. Heat just to simmering; do not boil. Pour vinegar mixture over beef to
partially cover. Cool, then cover and refrigerate 4 to 6 days, turning meat each day.
Remove meat from marinade, reserving marinade. Wipe meat dry. Rub meat with flour.
Heat lard or oil in a heavy Dutch oven. Brown meat on all sides in hot fat. Pour vinegar
mixture over beef. Taste and dilute with water if it seems too sour. Reduce heat. Simmer,
covered, 2 to 3 hours or until meat is tender and vinegar mixture cooked down. Prepare
potato balls for Crumbera Knepp. Remove beef and keep warm. Strain liquid and return
to Dutch oven. In a cup, mix 3 tablespoons flour with a small amount of water to make a
paste; whisk into liquid in Dutch oven. Bring to a boil and cook, whisking, until
thickened. Add ginger, allspice and raisins. Cook potato balls for Crumbera Knepp.
Moisten roast with gravy and serve remainder in a gravy boat. Serve meat with hot
dumplings. Makes 8 servings Christmas Sauerbraten Recipe.
