Salzburger Sauerbraten

Oxmoor House JANUARY 1984

  • Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (4-pound) chuck roast
  • 3 cups dry red wine
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 3/4 cup diced carrots
  • 12 whole peppercorns
  • 6 bay leaves
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons shortening, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 10 gingersnaps, finely crushed

Preparation

Place roast in a very large plastic, glass, or stainless steel container. Combine wine, onion, celery, carrots, peppercorns, bay leaves, cloves, and salt; mix well, and pour over roast. Cover and refrigerate 5 days, turning roast each day.

Remove roast from marinade; pat dry. Strain marinade, reserving marinade liquid; set aside. Discard vegetables and spices.

Melt 2 tablespoons shortening in a large Dutch oven; brown roast on all sides. Add reserved marinade liquid. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer over low heat 2 hours or until roast is tender. Remove roast to a warm serving platter, reserving pan liquid in Dutch oven.

Melt remaining 1/4 cup shortening in a large skillet; add flour and sugar. Cook, stirring constantly, until flour is browned. Gradually add 1 1/2 cups reserved pan liquid, stirring with a wire whisk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until gravy is thickened and bubbly.

Combine gravy with remaining pan liquid in Dutch oven, mixing well. Add gingersnap crumbs; cook, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened. Spoon gravy over roast.
