2 cup / 5 dl Red Wine
4 cup / 1 l Stock
8 pcs Bay Leaves
4 pcs Thyme Twigs

1. Cut the meat in cubes, 2-3 cm, and brown in butter, season with salt and pepper.

3. Add the bay leaves, thyme, garlic and juniper berriers and let it cook in the pressure cooker for about 35 minutes, or if you use a regular pot, let it simmer on the stove for 2 hours.

4. Fry the sliced onions together with almonds, apricots and raisins, and add it to the stew together with the diced potatoes.

5. Let it cook for 5 minutes then add the herbs, and if needed, thicken with cornstarch and season with salt and pepper.
