 Ingredients List

  • 5 lb Beef roast
  • 3 Ribs celery; sliced
  • 1 Onion; chopped
  • 3 Carrots; sliced
  • 3 Cloves garlic; chopped
  • Red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 c Spices (bay leaves; red
  • -pepper; thyme, basil and
  • -whole black peppercorns)
  • 1/4 c Brown sugar
  • Strained marinade
  • 12 Gingersnaps
  • 1/4 c Raisins


Place roast in plastic pan. Add vegetables and spices. Add equal parts of
vinegar and water to cover meat. Cover and refrigerate 4-5 days. (I have
hurried up and cooked it in 3 days and again waited as long as 7 days
it's still delicious!) Drain roast, reserving marinade. Place in large pan;
add carrots and bake at 350 until tender, about 2 hours. Melt sugar in iron
skillet. Gradually add marinade, gingersnaps and raisins. Add more marinade
as needed. (It takes quite a bit to make a smooth, thick sauce). Serve with
potato pancakes. Guests will ask for this recipe.
