This isn't traditional Sauerbraten, but a great, easy substitute using round steak. My mom made this dish when I was a kid. I started making it when my kids were young, and we all love it!! 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.

Delicious and easy to prepare. My wife and dinner guests raved about how good this dish was, and my wife made em promise to prepare it more often. I felt the original recipe was a bit on the bland side, so I suggest using 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, 4 to 6 tablespoons of red wine vinegar (depending on taste), 2 tablepsoons of Worcesteshire, and 2 bay leaves. The results are wonderful. Make sure to serve the meat au jaus, as the broth is where most of the flavor resides.

Awesome recipe! Everyone in my family loved it. It is as close as you can get to Sauerbraten without using some kind of premade seasing package and having to soak the meat for 2-3 days. This saves a lot of time. One note however, I used my crockpot. The meat ended up being super tender!

I put the round steak in my crock pot, mixed all the ingredients and poured it over the meat. It turned out very tender.
