Made this for Sunday dinner. Try to make something different at least once a week and your recipe was picked to try. Smells wonderful cooking in the crock pot and the samples that I have tasted, before serving, proves to be a good choice to serve my company for dinner. I'm sure it will be a hit all around. Thanks.

Truly outstanding flavor, yet quite easy!! The gravy is out of this world! I made this just as written except I used fresh grated onion in place of the onion powder. After I added the crushed ginger snaps, I decided to use my immersion blender to blend; the result was a thick, smooth and tasty gravy! I would proudly serve this to guests. Thanx for posting this excellent recipe. I'll make this often.

Fantastic Flavor!! Feels like I was back in Germany again! With how long it was in the slow cooker, the meat ended up shredded, but we served it shredded over spaetzle with some carrots on the side, and even my picky 7 year old asked for seconds! Thank you so much for a new recipe in our rotation!!

this is a great little recipe. i fix sauerbraten once a year or so, and am not keen on all the prep. this makes it so easy, i would never go back to the old way of doing it. the sauce is very nicely balanced. one caution though, it is essential to use the best quality gingersnaps you can get. once i made this with the ho-hum average store brand and it didnt taste nearly as good. this last time i used trader joe's triple ginger snaps and it was great!
