Juniper Berries Beef Stew

Here goes the recipe:

Junniper, Gin and Beef Stew
Junniper, Gin and Beef Stew

What you need:

  • 500g of beef
  • 10cl of gin
  • a sprig of rosemary
  • a sprig of thyme
  • 2 celery sticks
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • A wee bit of ginger
  • 8-10 Juniper berries
  • 2 carrots
  • 20 cl of deep red wine
  • Salt’n’pepper

How to:

In an oiled pan, sear the beef; don’t be shy now. Chop the vegetables. In a pan, infuse the gin with the herbs and Juniper Berries on a very low heat; this operation will help to get the most of the flavours. Think of it as a herbal tea. Pour the gin mix with the beef and let it reduce. The chopped vegetables go in, let all the flavours dance together. Cover with water and let the whole thing simmer for at least two hours… Or even three if you can. Let it rest for an hour and reheat as often as you wish. Serve with rice, a cheesy mash or roasted roots 😉
