See also: Sauerbraten Recipe
Several sources believe sauerbraten was invented by Charlemagne who died in 814 A.D. The recipe was used as a means of using up leftover roasted meat. Albert of Cologne, in the 13th century, a man, like Charlemagne, much interested in foods and gardening, used the recipe with fresh meat. I have my doubts about this story.
Sauerbraten is a German speciality (‘sour roast’), consisting beef roast marinated for several days in a sour/sweet marinade of vinegar and/or beer and spices (cloves, bay leaves, peppercorns, onions, etc.), and then brasied in the marinade. Crumbled Gingersnap cookie crumbs are frequently used to thicken the pan juices.
