    Olha's Note:

    The unglazed clay cooker really shines when you use it for less tender meats, such as the rump roast in this German favorite, spicy marinated Sauerbraten. With the sliced beef and shimmering sauce, serve noodles and Old Fashioned Spiced Applesauce. This is my favorite way of cooking. The Spiced Applesauce is delicious either as a simple dessert with cookies or as a side dish for German foods, such as Sauerbraten, this applesauce can be served either warm or chilled.
