Sauerbraten #1

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
5 pounds Beef roast
3 Ribs celery; sliced
1 Onion; chopped
3 Carrots; sliced
3 Cloves garlic; chopped
Red wine vinegar
½ cup Spices (bay leaves; red pepper; thyme, basil and whole black peppercorns)
¼ cup Brown sugar
Strained marinade
12 Gingersnaps
¼ cup Raisins

Place roast in plastic pan. Add vegetables and spices. Add equal parts of vinegar and water to cover meat. Cover and refrigerate 4-5 days. (I have hurried up and cooked it in 3 days and again waited as long as 7 days -- it's still delicious!) Drain roast, reserving marinade. Place in large pan; add carrots and bake at 350 until tender, about 2 hours. Melt sugar in iron skillet. Gradually add marinade, gingersnaps and raisins. Add more marinade as needed. (It takes quite a bit to make a smooth, thick sauce). Serve with potato pancakes. Guests will ask for this recipe.
