Sauerbraten Spices

Sauerbraten is a German sour pot roast. It marinates for up to three days in a mixture of herbs, spices, and wine vinegar. Today, these roasts are usually beef, but the preparation was once popular for venison and mutton, too. Our Sauerbraten Spices include mustard, coriander, dill seeds, allspice and cloves.
