Serves: 10

4 lb. top or bottom round roast
1 cup dry white wine
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
10 peppercorns, crushed
1 onion, sliced thin
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons pickling spices
2 cups water
3 tablespoons shortening
1/2 cup gingersnaps, crushed fine
1/2 cup sour cream

Two days before you plan to use it, put the beef in a deep glass
or pottery bowl. In a saucepan, mix the wine, salt, peppercorns,
onion, bay leaves and pickling spices with 2 cups water and bring
to a boil. Remove from the heat. When it is cool, pour over the
beef. Cover the bowl tightly with foil, and refrigerate for at
least two days, turning the meat in the marinade twice a day.

Preheat the oven to 350. Melt the shortening in a covered roasting
pan or casserole. Remove the meat from the marinade, pat it dry
with paper towels, and brown it well on all sides in the hot
shortening. Drain off the fat, strain the marinade, and pour it
over the meat. Cover and cook in the oven for 2-2 1/2 hours, or
until tender.

Remove the meat and keep warm on a platter. Put the roasting pan
on a burner and add the gingersnap crumbs, stirring until the gravy
is smooth and thickened. Stir in the sour cream, letting it get
hot, but not allowing it to boil, lest it curdle. Slice the meat,
pour the gravy into a sauce bowl, and serve with the sauerbraten.
