Sauerbraten Steaks ala Bad Aibling

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at When you do not have time nor need a large pot roasted sauerbraten, use this! It is simply a very flavorful peppered steak in a great sauce. And a recipe well remembered from my time in Bad Aibling (south of Munich) as done by our landlord in Heufeld (hayfield!).

2 tablespoons red wine
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon raw sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4-5 juniper berries
1 bay leaf, torn in half
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/2 onion, sliced

1-3 beef steaks (porterhouse, t bone, rib eye, tenderloin...etc)
2 tablespoons butter or oil
1/2 onion, diced
2-3 tablespoons gingersnap crumbs, or use all purpose flour, or even gluten free flour
1/3 cup sour cream
lingonberry jam

In a glass or ceramic bowl, combine the red wine, vinegar, sugar,salt, pepper, juniper berries, bay leaf, cloves, mustard seeds and 1/2 onion. Marinate the steaks in this mixture 30-45 minutes or so. When ready to cook, remove the steaks. Strain the marinade, reserving the liquid. In heavy bottomed fry pan or saute pan, heat the 2 tablespoons butter or oil and saute the diced onion 2-3 minutes. Scoot to the side of the pan and add the steaks. Cook to your desired doneness and place on serving plates. Add the strained liquid to the pan and whisk in the gingersnap crumbs or flour. Cook and whisk to make a nice gravy, adding the sour cream to warm it. Pour sauce over the steaks or along side of them, and serve with some lingonberry jam as a garnish.
