Peel and roughly dice 2 onions. Clean, wash and peel the soup greens, roughly dice. For the marinade, mix red wine, vinegar, bay leaves, cloves, juniper berries, peppercorns and allspice, bring to the boil and add the soup vegetables. Wash meat. Put the meat and marinade with vegetables in a large freezer bag. Seal tightly so that the meat floats in the marinade or is completely covered. Put in a bowl. Leave to stand in the refrigerator for 2 days, during this time turn the bag several times
Remove the roast from the marinade. Pour marinade through a sieve, catching the liquid. Pat the roast dry with kitchen paper and rub with salt. Heat the oil in a large roasting pan, fry the meat vigorously on all sides, then remove. Place the drained vegetables in the frying fat and fry vigorously while turning. Season with salt and pepper. Add tomato paste and sweat briefly. Put the meat back in. Deglaze with the marinade, bring to the boil. Cover and braise over a mild heat for approx. 3 hours
