Living in a German household, this is the special dinner that we have on Christmas Day. The cooking process is fairly long and the marinating of the meat is usually for 3-4 days in a similar one like this, but more vinegar and some milk. An incredible tender meat with a rich, creamy gravy made from the marinade. You can use a cheaper cut of meat, usually a hearty chuck roast works very well. We will have to try this shorter version to enjoy during the year!
