For the preparation of the beef

In the recipe below, the beef is previously cooked in soup until it is soft. In principle, you can use any leftover beef, especially boiled beef or soup meat. But you can also use, for example, roast beef. That’s a bit different in taste, but also very tasty with the salad.

About the veggies

Especially the mixture of spicy onion, green asparagus, bitter radicchio and sweet grapes and plums makes the salad very refreshing and summery in my opinion. If that’s too many different flavors at a time for you, you just let go of one or the other!

Beware, the beans have to soak overnight or at least a few hours and then need about another 60 minutes of cooking time. (Unless you use canned beans, of course)

Instructions
Preparation of the beef
  1. Boil water with the cleaned and sliced soup vegetables, onion, garlic, juniper berries and peppercorns. Add salt and the beef. Bring to a boil again and let simmer for about 2 hours at low temperature until the beef is tender.
  2. Remove beef from the soup and allow to cool.
  3. Remove the soup vegetables, the soup can be portioned and used for other dishes. (I usually freeze some of it for later use)
  4. The beef can also be cooked 1-2 days ahead. For storage overnight, remove from the soup and pack in plastic wrap.
Preparation of the salad
  1. Cut the cooled beef into thin slices, with a sharp knife against the fiber.
  2. Prepare beans according to the package instructions. (Attention, they must soak overnight or at least a few hours and then have about another 60 minutes cooking time) After boiling pour the water away and season the beans with a few tablespoons of beef soup, cider vinegar and salt.
  3. Steam the asparagus over salted water for about 20-30 minutes. (Or boil directly in water for 5 minutes)
  4. Cut the radicchio into small pieces, cut the plums into thin slices. Cut the onion into thin rings.
  5. For the marinade, mix the currant juice with apple cider vinegar, rosemary, salt and some freshly ground pepper. It can also be mixed with a few spoons of the beef soup.
  6. Arrange all ingredients on the plate and douse with the marinade. Refine with a dash of pumpkin seed oil.
