Slow-Cooker Sauerbraten

“My family is of German Lutheran descent, and although we enjoy this traditional beef roast, I never liked the amount of time and fuss it takes to make it. This recipe is so good and oh-so-easy. It’s great served with dumplings, spaetzle, veggies or a salad.” —Norma English, Baden, Pennsylvania
