“For 100 years, Lüchow’s was NYC's landmark German restaurant; it closed in 1982. This recipe is from “Lüchow’s German Cookbook” (1952). My ancestors immigrated to the U.S. from Germany, and settled in Brooklyn and Queens. When I was a child, for special occasions my grandmother would make Sauerbraten served with with dumplings and a red cabbage like this. The sweet-sour taste, the deep red color — these had special appeal to me as a child. This is my comfort food — to this day it conjures happy forty-year-old memories of sitting in my grandmother's crowded kitchen on a festive Sunday afternoon.”
