            Am familiar with Ebay. I thought I could use this forum to help other people find lost recipes online from a blog I keep. Is it possible to email me a copy of the recipe from one of your books? For Sauerbraten? You would be doing me a great favor.

          2. You have the recipe above. I am confused.

            1. I really appreciate your help. The recipe was from Circa 1970, not 1950's. Thanks.

                Bangor din gives you the recipe from the encyclopedia as you ask. It matches the link because the encyclopedia is a compendium of earlier recipes. recipes.

              2. It's not the same recipe, but thanks for your efforts.

                  I have the encyclopedias, but you would need to be more specific. There are the following recipes:
                  Sauerbraten with vegetables
                  Sauerbraten with sour cream gravy
                  Overnight sauerbraten
                  Quick sauerbraten

                2. Its is Sauerbraten recipe from 1970's collection that also had recipes for potato dumplings and red cabbage, close by.
