Traditional sauerbraten has the most wonderful sweet and sour flavor;
and the meat is very tender from long, slow cooking. This easy and
simple version cooks in your crockpot and takes about 20 minutes to
put together.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 9 hours,

* 2 lbs. top round beef steak
* 2 onions, chopped
* 1 cup beef broth
* 1 cup apple cider vinegar
* 2 bay leaves
* 16-oz. pkg. baby carrots
* 2 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
* 3/4 cup crushed gingersnaps (about 15 cookies)
* 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
* 1 cup sour cream
* 3 Tbsp. flour

In 4 to 5-quart slow cooker, combine beef, onions, broth, vinegar, bay
leaves, carrots, and potatoes. Mix well, then cover crockpot and cook
on low for 8-9 hours. Then remove cover and turn heat to high. Remove
bay leaves.

Add gingersnaps and brown sugar to the mixture. Stir well and taste
for seasoning (you may want to add more gingersnaps or brown sugar for
the perfect sweet/sour balance). Then stir together sour cream and
flour and add that to the crockpot, stirring well to combine. Cover
and cook for 30 minutes until thickened and heated. Serve with hot
cooked egg noodles or spatzele. Serves 6-8
