How to make it

  • Wash and roughly chop the veggies, thinly slice the onions. Bring water with vinegar, wine, veggies, bay leafs, juniper berries and cloves to a boil, let cool somewhat. Put beef in a large bowl, pour the warm marinade over it,cover and marinate in the fridge for 3 to 4 days.
  • Heat oven to 320 F ( 160 C ). Take the meat out of the marinade, dry and rub with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a heavy pot, and sear the meat from all sides to a nice brown. Add 1/3 of the marinade, the veggies and the spices from the marinating and bring to a boil. Cover and braise in the oven for 3 hours, moistening the meat with the braising liquid every 1/2 hour.
  • Soak raisins in some of the marinade. When the meat is done, take it out and wrap it in tin foil, let it rest 15 min.
  • Strain the braising liquid through a sieve in a small pot, grate the Lebkuchen into the sauce. Let reduce by 1/3 and add the soaked raisins. Let simmer for a couple minutes, adjust seasonings. If you like the sauce thicker, thicken it with some starch,
  • Cut the meat into slices, arrange on a warm platter and drizzle some sauce over. Serve the remaining sauce on the side.
