Sauerbraten

Sauerbraten is regarded as one of the national dishes of Germany and is basically a pot roast. Sauer stands for sour or pickled and braten stands for roast meat. Sauerbraten can be made with many different types of meat but most often beef. The meat is marinated for a range of 3 to 10 days with either wine or vinegar and water, herbs, and spices. The result of being marinated for multiple days leaves the meat tender and juicy. The reason I chose Sauerbraten is because the main character from The Monuments Men, Harry Ettlinger, was born and raised in Germany and Sauerbraten is one of the national dishes and Germany and is served in many German restaurants around the world.
