Crock Pot Sauerbraten

READY IN: 12hrs 15mins
Recipe by lazyme

Not sure where I got this recipe, but it is a simple one to make in the crock pot. Plan ahead, this needs to marinate overnight in the refrigerator and cook for 8-12 hours.

The cut of meat I used was a prime rib roast that I needed to use. It has a light wine taste to it. I love the gingersnap gravy but I almost forgot to add them. It is not sauerbraten if you don't have the gingersnap gravy!! Oh yes, I poured the juice into a large saucepan and heated it up on the stove as I know it would take to long in the crockpot. Another pan yes, but when your kids start chewing on your leg, you do what you got to do. LOL Made this for *Zaar World Tour game* 2008 for the *German Beverage Forum Bier ist Nahrung Cooking Challenge* in the *German Region* I'm playing for the *Tastebud Tickling Travelers* team. *Go Team*
