Here is a delicious twist on a classic German recipe my family loves. Sauerbraten a/k/a German Pot Roast. Served with a yummy side of parmesan zucchini mashed potatoes this makes for a really hearty warm up on a cold winter evening. And It's easy in the slow cooker too.

How to Make (Sauerbraten) German Pot Roast

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat large skillet on stovetop over medium high heat. Add 2Tablespoons Olive or Canola oil then rub sirloin tip roast with dried herbs & Worcestershire sauce. Place in hot skillet and sear on both sides until browned 3-5 minutes per side.
  2. Cut cabbage into 1x1 inch square pieces and place into bottom of slow cooker along with sliced onions & mushrooms. Peel carrots cut into 1" pieces then add to veggie mixture.
  3. Place browned roast on top of veggies then add 1 bottle beer & water then spread both mustards onto roast & cover. low for 5 hours.
    To thicken gravy/sauce combine corn starch and water slowly pour into liquid prior to serving whisk well and cover to bring back to a boil. This should thicken nicely. Shake in 2-3 dashes of vinegar prior to service.
  4. Serve this roast cut into thin strips on a bed of the veggies and along side of my recipe for parmesan mashed zucchini potatoes then top all with the gravy/sauce. Very hearty meal.
