How to make it
- Put all marinade ingredients into large container, and stir well. Pierce meat at random with a boning knife.
- Add meat to container and cover.
- Place in the refrigerator for 72 hours. (If you marinate for less than 72 hours, the beef will be tough. If you marinate for much over 72 hours the meat will become dry and flavorless.)
- Remove meat; wipe dry with towel and brown in hot oil.
- Remove to large pot. Place marinade in with meat.
- Cover, bring to a boil and simmer for 2 ½ hours or until tender. When meat is done, transfer to a dry pan and cover with a damp cloth and keep warm.
- Remove bay leaves.
- Puree liquid and vegetables in a blender or processor.
- Place in a heavy pot; whip crushed ginger snap cookies into liquid, stirring until smooth.
- Add raisins and simmer five minutes.
- Cut the meat across the grain and serve with a two- ounce ladle of sauce per person.

This is how my grandmother used to make it. It is one of my favorite although I very rarely ever make it - like all things nowadays - in a hurry!
Thanks for the wonderful post and a very high 5 forks to you!

Very nice, authentic recipe! Very much like I make! Just add potato dumplings, sweet and sour red cabbage, and some applesauce and you'd think you were in Deutschland!crabhappychick in Pittsburgh loved it
