Why I Love This Recipe

Traditional sauerbraten has the most wonderful sweet and sour flavor; and the meat is very tender from long, slow cooking. This easy and simple version cooks in your crockpot and takes about 20 minutes to put together.


Ingredients You'll Need

2 lbs. top round beef steak
2 onions, chopped
1 cup beef broth
1 cup apple cider vinegar
2 bay leaves
16-oz. pkg. baby carrots
2 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3/4 cup crushed gingersnaps (about 15 cookies)
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 cup sour cream
3 Tbsp. flour


Directions

In 4 to 5-quart slow cooker, combine beef, onions, broth, vinegar, bay leaves, carrots, and potatoes. Mix well, then cover crock-pot and cook on low for 8-9 hours. Then remove cover and turn heat to high.


Remove bay leaves.


Add gingersnaps and brown sugar to the mixture. Stir well and taste for seasoning (you may want to add more gingersnaps or brown sugar for the perfect sweet/sour balance).


Then stir together sour cream and flour and add that to the crock-pot, stirring well to combine. Cover and cook for 30 minutes until thickened and heated. Serve with hot cooked egg noodles or spatzele.
