This is my mothers recipe. She went to culinary school, and was an excellent cook. She taught me early on, and it must ingrained in me. Back when mother was alive, she must have spend half of her life in the kitchen. Cooking, baking, food decoration was her passion.
In our parents house we used to joke to my dad. There is a German saying “Liebe geht durch den Magen” which translates to “Love goes through the stomach”. It gave us a chuckle at the dinner table.
Here are some of the Crock Pots or Instant Pots to choose from:
Can be cooked in a large pot or Dutch oven with a cooking time of 1.5 to 2 hours.
With this recipe I use a Slow Cooker, also called Crockpot, cooking on low for about 7 to 8 hours
*It is optional, also not necessary to prepare the meat first. Unless you have a Chuck roast, to soften the tougher Top Round, try rubbing it in salt and spices a day ahead in in the fridge wrapped in plastic.

I have been living half of my life in Germany, then US, and traveling since then. My passion is cooking, painting and glass mosaic art. I try to re-create recipes I grew up with, or I tasted while traveling in Europe.
