How To Make Sauerbraten Patties


2 eggs
1 cup water, divided
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 cup beef broth
1/4 cup red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
10 whole cloves
1 bay leaf
12 gingersnaps, crumbled


In a large bowl, combine the eggs, 3/4 cup water, bread crumbs, onion, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture; mix well. Shape into eight patties.

In a large skillet, brown patties on both sides; drain. Add the broth, vinegar, brown sugar, cloves, bay leaf, gingersnaps and remaining water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour or until meat is no longer pink. Discard cloves and bay leaf before serving.
