Posted in on the 13th June, 2054

1 tbsp Olive oil
1 1/4 lb Bottom round steak
Trimmed of fat and membrane 1/2 c Brandy
2 c Beef stock
2 tbsp Coarse-grained mustard
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
4 Shallots — peeled
Thinly sliced 4 Sun-dried tomatoes
(not oil-packed) Cut into slivers 3 lg Garlic clove(s)
Peeled — thinly sliced 6 Juniper berries
1 Bay leaf
Black pepper to taste Preheat oven to 325 F. In a Dutch oven or deep skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add meat and brown on all sides. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and drain off all the pat in the pan. Return the pan to the heat and immediately add brandy, stirring to scrape up any browned bits in the bottom. Cook until the brandy is reduced to a syrupy glaze. Stir in stock, mustards, shallots, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, juniper berries, and bay leaf and bring to a boil. Return the meat to the pan, cover tightly and place in the oven. Bake, turning the meat every 30 min, for 1 1/2-2 hours, or until very tender. Remove bay leaf and season the sauce with pepper. Cut the meat into thin slices, arrange on a platter, and spoon the sauce over. eating Well Recipe Rescue Cookbook ISBN 1-884943-01-2 pg 136
