Martha, do you heat it up the next night or do you serve it cold? I plan to try this since I love German Potato Salad.

Is it coleslaw or potato salad? The cole slaw dressing is heated when you make it and put it on the coleslaw, but then the cole slaw is refrigerated and is served cold (or room temp).
The potato salad is made to be served right away or can be reheated if there are any left over. For the big Oktoberfest I make it early in the day and then the grill guys put it on the grill and reheat it that way.
So it can be made ahead and reheated.
We would NEVER serve that potato salad cold! (Although there are some cold German potato salads)

Linderhof or any German cook,I love German pot roast and the last few times I made it it wasn't great. Sauerbratin is my favorite meal. I mage the ginger snap gravy which is just ginger snaps crushed for the thickening agent instead of flour after it was finished cooking.I also make sure that I use apple cider vinegar. I do let it soak in all of the seasonings for 2 days before braising it and cooking. Do you make this? Do you know why it would be tough? if you do make this what type of roast do you buy for this meal?

Even though sauerbraten is German we never had it growing up -- the German is on my father's side and my mother's repertoire of German recipes were limited to either what Grandmother gave her the recipes for or what she chose to cook. Sauerbraten wasn't one of them!
However, if the roast was tough I would assume that it perhaps wasn't cooked long enough.
Linderhof & Bet, I just discovered the two of you are from SE Kansas! We live in Houston but have property in and around Girard. Even worked in Fort Scott once upon a time! What a small world indeed!

Love having the opportunity to grow especially bulb flowers in Kansas that I can't grow here in Houston. Have farm in Brazilton & home in Girard. I was in highschool with kids from Greenbush in the late 50s.
