sauerbraten gravy sauce

From the New Century German Cookbook

1  1/3 cups beef gravy (can be homemade, canned, or package) your choice

1/2 cup dry red wine

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1/8 tsp. ground cloves

1 small carrot, shredded

1 small onion, minced

1/2 cup sour cream – regular or fat-free

1/4 cup ginger snap cookie crumbs

2 squashed juniper berries


Saute carrot and onion until done to your preference. In small saucepan combine gravy, wine, vinegar, cloves, juniper, and vegetables, and stir to blend well – will be thin at this point. Simmer 15-20 minutes until liquid reduces. Stir sour cream and ginger snap crumbs into gravy with whisk. Spoon over meat when ready to eat. Makes 6 servings.
