Sauerbraten needs to brine for a few days to prepare before cooking. Keep in mind that if you prefer more your gravy to be sourer, reduce the water/wine and increase the vinegar or add lemon juice.

Pie Crusts

Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. For the Empanada Sunburst dough: Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and then whisk in the stock. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and knead until a dough forms. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, for the empanada filling: In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground beef,(chicken or turkey) and garlic minced (optional) and cook until the meat is cooked completely. Drain the grease and set the cooked meat aside. In the same pan, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the tomato paste, vinegar, cumin, chili powder, oregano, seasoned salt, garlic, bell peppers and onions. Cook until softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the beef and cook over low heat for about 5 more minutes. The mixture should be moist but not dripping wet.
  3. Divide dough in half. On generously floured surface, roll out each disk to 1/4 inch 12' circle. Place first circle on parchment -lined backing sheet. Spoon a 3/4 cup of chili in center of the circle then spread remaining chili in a ring about 2" from the edge of the circle. Lay second dough circle over chili mixture. Press 4" bowl, upside down, in the middle indenting it then take the bowl off dough. Press outer dough edges together, crimp to seal.
  4. Cut petals using kitchen shears, carefully cut outer ring of the pastry into 1" slices. Gently twist each piece to expose the filing upward. In bowl, whisk remaining egg, brush over exposed pastry. Bake 30 min. or until golden brown. Serve with Basil and sour cream for dipping, if desired.

Servings: servings
Instructions
Cherry Marmalade Glaze:
  1. Mix all glaze ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until marmalade is melted and starts to simmer. Turn off heat and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400° F.
Apple Stuffing:
  1. Sauté all ingredients in canola oil except for chicken stock for 2–3 minutes in large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Slowly add chicken stock until moist, but not too wet. (You may not need it all, depending on how much juice is released from the apples during cooking.)
  2. Remove from heat and chill to room temperature.
Pork Loin Directions:
  1. Meanwhile, cut five slits about 1 inch apart along the length of the loin, forming several pockets. Stuff each pocket with about 2 tablespoons of stuffing (there should be a little left over). Tie one long piece of twine around the length of the loin and tie additional twine across the shorter length as needed to keep the stuffing in place.
  2. Place remaining stuffing on a baking sheet tray, place tied stuffed pork on top and bake for 45 minutes at 400° F or until you reach an internal temperature of 160° F.
  3. Spoon on the dried cherry marmalade glaze, shut oven heat off and let rest in oven for 10–15 minutes. Remove pork loin, slice into portions then serve.
