Since all of my grandparents were German, it's no wonder that so many Bavarian recipes have been handed down to me. Because the Midwest has such a large German population, I feel this recipe represents the area well.

MY REVIEW

loved this recipe! Great taste, and it does taste like saurbraten which my son loves, but its so consuming to make. Now I can make this in less time. Thanks to the poster who said they made it in a crockpot... thats how I plan on making this next time.
