My great Uncle Bo turned 90 years old...
this is the photo my Mom gave him for his birthday...
Here is his recipe for Sauerbraten:
1 - 3 lb shoulder arm roast with some fat
Cover the roast with buttermilk. Refrigerate for 24 hours
with bay leaves and peppercorns.
Remove from buttermilk
Sear until brown on both sides (crusty)
Cook in heavy Dutch oven
Cook on low to medium for 3 hours depending on size
half way through cover with buttermilk
Thicken juice with flour to make gravy...
Definitely not a low cal meal....
