With 'Eat and Greet,' You Can Cook Along With the Chefs
As part of ABC News' "Eat and Greet" series, ABC's Katrina Szish visits the kitchen of New York City's Heidelberg Restaurant to bring you executive chef Dieter Weber's recipe for German Sauerbraten.
Put all marinade ingredients into dish large enough to submerge bottom round into. Marinate five days to seven days in refrigerator. Put meat into roasting pan, pour marinade juices over meat. Cover with foil and cook three hours, 400 degrees in oven. With 30 minute cooking time remaining, remove foil cover and allow the top of the roast to brown. Make gravy from stock, add water to dilute. Thicken with Roux, season with salt / pepper to taste.
Take stock from roasting pan, strain through colander, and put into a pot. Add water (in 2 to 1 ratio = for every 4 cups stock, add 2 cups water) to taste because it is cooked down and flavorful. Bring to a boil, and thicken with roux. Roux can just be a cornstarch / flour mix, or a butter roux. Thicken to desired consistency
