      I had two beef shanks that I had to get out of the freezer and use so I found your recipe and I had all of the ingredients except the juniper berries. I cut the recipe in half and in place of the juniper berries I added some gin Ha! It was fantastic!Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, it has gone into my Favorites cookbook to do again.
