German-Style Pot Roast (Sauerbraten) - my introduction to this wonderful roast was at the dinner table of a friend in high school. She and her family had come to the U.S. from Germany when my friend was five. I learned many wonderful home-style German dishes from her mother and her aunt. It's a shame German cooking is not better known and served here. It is a rich, hearty food that always leaves one feeling satisfied.
