(German-style Roast Beef)

from Germany
  • 5 pounds beef top round
  • 10 whole garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 quart red wine vinegar
  • 2 cups julienned onions
  • 1 small bundle of fresh thyme
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 cups beef stock
  • 1 cup crushed gingersnap cookies
  • 1 cup sour cream

Stud the roast with the whole garlic cloves, and season with salt and pepper. Place the roast in a deep glass bowl.

In a mixing bowl, whisk the vinegar, onions, herbs, and sugar together. Whisk the liquid until the sugar dissolves. Pour the marinade over the roast and cover with plastic wrap. Place the roast in the refrigerator and marinate for 72 hours.

Remove the roast from the marinade. Strain the marinade. Place the roast in a braising pan. Add the beef stock to the strained liquid. Pour the liquid over the roast and place in the oven. The liquid should cover 1/2 of the roast. Braise the roast covered for 2-3 hours. Turn the meat several times and add additional stock if needed. Place pan with the braising liquid over a burner. Bring the liquid to a simmer. Whisk the crushed gingersnaps into the liquid. Simmer the sauce for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the sour cream. Slice the roast and coat meat with some of the sauce. Serve the remaining sauce separately with potato pancakes or dumplings.
