    Mysterygirl's Note:

    Not sure if this is the traditional Hasenpfeffer but it is definitely delicious. I got this about 20 years ago from a small cookbook with recipes from inns around the US. No idea which inn this came from. Takes a long time but it is soooo worth it.

      My family and I absolutely LOVE this recipe. I lost it years ago and when I did a search on the ingredients I remembered, I found it. I came from a small recipe book put out by Benson & Hedges of all small inns. Thank you so much for posting it so I could find it again. I am making the marinade tomorrow.

      This is VERY close to the original recipe. Just add a couple tablespoons of vinegar at the flour/ sour cream step, and you're there. Trust me on the vinegar. I'm not a vinegar fan, but hasenpfeffer is NOT complete without it.
