This is a sauerbraten recipe my mom cooked for special guests and events. It seemed like she was in the kitchen forever getting it ready; so, I've updated it to save on time. This dish is really very easy. I haven't changed any of her original ingredients, just the way it's cooked. Now, we have this rich dish for friends and family and they always rave about how delicious it is. This dish is great served with egg noodles.
