Slice the beef into small pieces, chop the onion and squeeze the garlic. Pour the oil in the fire cauldron of DUUV, above the fire pit of DUUV and bake the onion and bacon in it. As soon as the onions are golden brown you get everything out of the cauldron. Again pour in some oil (if necessary) and bake the pieces of beef brown quickly. Sprinkle flour over it and pour the water in, stir it directly. Add salt and pepper. Add the baked onions and bacon in the cauldron, stir it well. Add wine, oregano, cloves, juniper berries and squeezed garlic. Let everything boil quietly for 1,5 to 2 hours. Then add the sliced mushrooms, carrot, green beans and the peeled and sliced potatoes. Stir it well, add also the tomato paste and cognac. Let it boil for half an hour. Serve it with rice, potato paste or bread. It is also very delicious combined with stewed pears. Of course we drink a glass of red wine with it!
