This is absolutely delicious. My short ribs were fall apart tender and absolutely perfect. I did make a couple of minor changes though. I could not find juniper berries so I threw in a shot of gin to try to make up for it :) I did not discard the vegetables at the end because I didn't wan't to lose the amazing flavor of the carmelized vegetables. Instead I used my immersion blender to puree the vegis right into the gravy. I also doubled the crushed ginger snaps because we love that ginger flavor. Sprinkled the completed dish with a few more crushed gingersnaps and wow! Make this....you won't be sorry! Thanks for sharing this amazing dish Chef John! UPDATE: I decided to try this with a chuck pot roast and it turned out delicious. I followed everything except I put the roast in a covered dutch oven and baked at 275 for five hours. Delish and fall apart pot roast!
This was amazing! My BF is German and he said it's every bit as good as his Oma made. I couldn't find juniper berries so used gin (which is made from the berries...interesting). jThe gravy was to die for!
We used thick chunks of stew meat for this recipe and it turned out perfect -- just a little more work to separate the meat from the vegetables/broth! If you like German foods this recipe will put a smile on your face. Thank you Chef John!
Amazing! A Frankenmuth, MI restaurant had an amazing sauerbraten and this recipe is as good or better! I will recommend this to all my friends and family and cannot wait to make it again. I followed exactly except I used chuck roast and I was unable to find the juniper. Thank you Chef John!
Excellent! I made the sauce exactly as written (and was surprised to find juniper berries at our grocery store - for anyone in the northeast U.S. I found them at Wegmans). The only change I made was using a tip roast instead of short ribs and I baked it in a slow oven for about 5 hours. Fall-apart tender and very flavorful. Served it with noodles and sweet and sour red cabbage.
Holy poop this is so good. I'm just getting into cooking German food and I was reticent to go get the juniper etc. that I didn't have just to try this recipe but I am so glad I did. I followed the recipe to a T and it came out amazingly good. My wife was super impressed and we both agree that this one is worth the work. Will make again!
