Ingredients

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

In 4 to 5-quart slow cooker, combine beef, onions, broth, vinegar, bay leaves, carrots, and potatoes. Mix well, then cover crockpot 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 crockpot, stirring well to combine. Cover and cook for 30 minutes until thickened and heated.


Serve with hot cooked egg noodles, spatzele or Panni makes a potato dumpling my family loves. Serves 6-8
