Marinated Roast Beef with Spaetzle and Cabbage
- Season the meat with salt and pepper, place in a large bowl.
- Bring the vinegar and water to a boil, add the garlic, onions, bay leaf, peppercorns, sugar and cloves. Pour the marinade over the beef, cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Remove the meat and dry thoroughly with paper towels. Reserve the marinade. Dredge the meat in flour. In a heavy kettle heat the oil, add the meat and brown on all sides. Add 2 cups of the marinade, cover tightly – simmer gently until the meat is tender, 2,5 to 3 hours. Remove the meat to a warm platter and keep it hot.Thicken the gravy with a little flour mixed with water. Stir in the sour cream and serve over the sliced meat.
- Preparing the Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage In a large bowl, stir in the cider vinegar with the sugar. Stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the cabbage; toss to coat. Let it stand for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon, reserving drippings. In the drippings, sauté the apple and the onion until tender.
- Add water and the cabbage mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 to 35 minutes. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Simmer, uncover for 5 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle with reserved bacon just before serving. Cook the Spaetzle al dente in boiling salt-water.
- Once everything is ready to go, cut the beef into slices and serve on a platter with a little of the sauce poured over it; serve the rest of the sauce in a gravy boat or a separate bowl.
