To make traditional German type sauerbraten, season a 4-5 lb. chuck, rump, or round of beef roast with salt and pepper. Place in a large ceramic or glass dish, then add 2 cups of cider vinegar, 2 cups of water, and 2-3 tablespoons Sauerbraten Spice. Cover and refrigerate for 3 days, turning meat twice daily. Remove meat from marinade and reserve. Brown meat in 2 tablespoons bacon drippings in a large kettle. Add 1 cup of marinade and simmer, covered 2.5-3 hours (until tender). If necessary, add more marinade from time to time. Remove meat, let stand 15 minutes, then slice. Meanwhile, add 1/4 cup brown sugar and 4-6 crumbled gingersnaps to the liquid in the kettle. Stir until gravy thickens; add a little arrowroot or flour if needed. Pour gravy over sliced meat and serve. Ingredients: Mustard, juniper, dill, bay leaf, ginger, allspice, pepper, cloves, star anise, coriander, cinnamon, mace, chiles, cardamom.

Seriously you cannot beat this spice mix! Best of the best.
Highly recommend this sauerbraten spice mix. Elevated our family recipe to the next level. Excellent
When I opened the Sauerbraten spice pack, it was so full of the beautiful scents of the spices. It was just like the Sauerbraten Spice packet that I obtained from a farmer at the Munich Farmers Market. My Sauerbraten was delicious and will be using this spice again in the future.
A friend gifted me with this blend of spices, and a few others and I used for family's sauerbraten recipe and it was phenomenal! Very high quality ingredients, all the spices here were very flavorful- night and day compared to the cheaper brands of spices I usually buy at my local grocer.
I highly recommend this blend and this seller for producing such high quality spices!
