I was really disappointed in this mix, the meat tasted nothing like any Sauerbraten I ever had, and does not come even close to the Sauerbraten done with soaking the meat in a brine. I even added extra vinegar, once I tasted it I had to add some more. Unfortunately this does not soak into the meat and leaves it rather bland. I made a large meal using two bags so I taken the leftover added more vinegar and let it sit for two days in my refrigerator before freezing it. I have not yet served this yet so I can't say what it will taste like.
I suggest you go the old fashion way with the Sauerbraten if you want to get the real taste or impress family and friends. If you need it quick and are using the mix i suggest that you add vinegar from the start so it will cook into the meat. I won't buy this again.
