      This is my new favorite recipe. Wow. Made this last night for our best friends, and all of us were totally blown away by the flavors, the moistness of the meat, the thickness of the sauce, and the overall savory, sensational taste of this dish. I made this exactly as directed, EXCEPT I forgot to drain the fat before adding the veggies, but I was lucky and had a lean roast. This is a great company dinner, and I guess it would make for some divine leftovers...if there ARE any, that is! My roast was almost 3 pounds, and I braised it about 1 hour, 25 minutes, and it was just perfect. This one is a definite "go to" recipe for us now, Bergy. DH asked me today if we could have it again over the weekend (LOL). As you can see, it was a real hit with us. Delicious, and definitely 5-star!

      The meat was wonderful. My guys devoured it! The sauce had a bitter taste to it they didn't like, which was probably the juniper berries. I will do this again, but I think I will put the berries in cheesecloth so I can pull them out before making the sauce. Thanks for sharing!
