Danish Pounded Beef with Juniper Berries

This is a good way to use a tough cut of beef.

Danish Pounded Beef with Juniper Berries (Bankekød med enebær)

serves 4


700 gr lean beef
12 juniper berries
75 gr butter (I used about 3 Tlbsps ≈ 45 gr. Use what you need.)
200 gr onion, chopped
2 bay leaves
salt
pepper
1 litre water
your preferred thickener


  • Cut the beef in thin slices (~1cm – 1/4 inch).
  • Pound the beef well.
  • Season the slices with salt, pepper, and the lightly crushed juniper berries.
  • Brown the slices of beef in the butter, in batches and put aside.
  • Sweat the onions.
  • Return the beef slices to the pan.
  • Add the bay leaves and water.
  • Bring to a boil, then cover with a lid and simmer for an hour.
  • Remove the beef and some or all of the onion to a warm serving plate.
  • Thicken the liquid to a gravy.


Serve with mashed potatoes and lingonberry preserves.


700 grams ≈ 1.5 pounds
75 grams ≈ 4-5 Tablespoons of butter
200 grams ≈ 7 ounces – 1 large, not huge, onion
1 litre ≈ 1 U.S. quart plus 1-2 ounces

Thanks for suggesting another way to prepare some of the more affordable cuts of beef.
What's at 8 O'clock on the plate?

Sounds great, TL! I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I'm half Danish myself.

It looks good. Thanks for the recipe.

Where can one usually find juniper berries? Is it a jarred item?

It's Danish Red Cabbage - Rødkål (Roedkaal). The smaller blob of dark red/purple stuff is Cranberry Fire, a hot cranberry sauce that a friend of mine makes and sells. I didn't have any lingonberry.

It's considered a spice. I buy them in a bag at the health food store and put them in a small jar.
