German Pot Roast

Take a 5-pound beef roast. Rub with salt and black pepper and paprica; pour over some boiling vinegar; add 2 bay-leaves, a few peppercorns and cloves. Let stand over night. Heat 2 tablespoonfuls of dripping in a saucepan; lay in the meat with 2 sliced onions. Let stew slowly with one cup of water and 1/2 cup of the spiced vinegar until tender. Thicken the sauce with flour and serve hot with potato pancakes.
