Round Steak Sauerbraten

Amanda Pena


"This isn't traditional Sauerbraten, but a great, easy substitute using round steak. My mom made this dish when I was a kid. Try serving over buttered noodles. If your crew is really hungry, then double the recipe. The single recipe is never enough for my family of four."
