I'm planning an Oktoberfest and wanted to see what successful Sauerbraten recipes you have used. I'll be doing Bavarian style Braised Red Cabbage, Beer Brats and hopefully Sauerbraten. [p]Thanks in advance for any insight.[p]BP[p]

    BabyBoomBBQ, try this one:
    Sauerbraten Mit Ingwer Kuchen Sosse (Saurebraten & Gingersnap Gravy)
    4 lbs rump roast; beef, boneless
    1/2 cup cider vinegar
    2 onions, thinly sliced
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    8 peppercorns
    1/2 tsp salt
    4 cloves , whole
    2 cups water, boiling
    1 bay leaf
    10 gingersnaps
    1 cup white vinegar, mild
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1 cup water
    1 Tbs unbleached flour

    1 Place the beef roast in a deep ceramic or glass bowl. Add onions, peppercorns, cloves, and bay leaf. Pour white vinegar and cider vinegar over the meat; chill, covered, for 4 days. Turn meat twice each day. Remove the meat from the marinade, dry it well with paper towels, and strain the marinade into a bowl. Reserve onions and 1 cup marinade.
    2 In a Dutch oven brown the meat on all sides in hot vegetable oil. Sprinkle meat with salt. Pour boiling water around the meat. sprinkle in crushed gingersnaps, and simmer covered for 1 1/2 hours. Turn often. Add 1 cup of reserved marinade and cook meat 2 hours or more, until tender. Remove the meat and keep it warm. Strain the cooking juices into a large saucepan.
    3 In a small bowl mix sour cream with flour. Stir it into the cooking juices and cook, stirring, until sauce is thickened and smooth. Slice meat in 1/4 inch slices; add to hot gravy. Arrange meat on a heated platter and pour extra sauce over it. [p]Servings: 10
