Easy & just as delicious as the recipes requiring marinating for 3 days. I marinated mine overnight for extra flavor. Without marinating, most of the sauerbraten flavor is in the gravy rather than in the meat. I didn't make a spice sachet; rather, I strained the cooking liquid then thickened. Easy & delicious.
