“This is not the same recipe as the traditional German sauerbraten. I'm not even sure if it has the right name, but it's what my mother called it, and who's to argue with Mom? She often made this while we were growing up. The meat we used in the Netherlands then was generally a little tougher, and she often used recipes for braising it to make it tender. This recipe adapts well to a crockpot or pressure cooker, too (changed cooking time, of course).”
