    gruntlady's Note:

    This recipe is my dear sis in law Mary Lee's. It is WONDERFUL. Here in Mi we have 2 German restaurants close by in a town called FRANKENMUTH--wonderful German food of all kinds, BUT her Sauerbraten beats theirs all the way.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Gingersnap gravy (use 1 cup strained marinade)

    • 1/3 cup broken ginger snaps

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Add all ingredients for marinade and the roast in a large glass bowl ONLY use GLASS(sis uses a punch bowl) as I think during the long marinating time there would be a reaction of some sort to your pan also cuts hers in half or thirds depending on the size of her roast.
    2. 2
      Cover with plastic wrap.NOT foil.and refrigerate for 3 to 4 days.MAKE SURE ALL MEAT is completely SUBMERGED.
    3. 3
      On 3rd or 4th day remove roast from marinade(keep the marinade).
    4. 4
      Pat roast dry with paper towel --.
    5. 5
      In dutch oven add about 2 Tbs oil and brown the meat.
    6. 6
      Strain the marinade and add the liquid back to the dutch oven with the meat( she also picks out the onions and adds those in too). Cook over med heat 2 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on how big your roast is. She always has a large 7 pound or so.
    7. 7
      GINGERSNAP GRAVY.
    8. 8
      1 cup strained marinade.
    9. 9
      1/3 cup crushed /crumbled gingersnaps.
    10. 10
      Hint:the measurements for the gravy are for per 1 cup of gravy -- we use /measure all remaining marinade after cooking and straining and go from there as we LOVE this thick tangy gravy.
    11. 11
      After roast is done & while it is "resting".
    12. 12
      Measure the leftover marinade.
    13. 13
      (used for the marinating/cooking) for every 1 cup marinade.
    14. 14
      You add 1/3 cup gingersnaps (broken) cook marinade & gingersnaps over med heat till it is gravy -- doesn't take long.
    15. 15
      This gravy is my absolute FAVORITE.
