15 ml/1 tbsp plain (all-purpose) flour

Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry (saute) the onion and garlic until soft. Add the steak and fry until browned. Add the mushrooms and fry for 1 minute. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute, then stir in the stock, tomato puree, Worcestershire sauce and juniper berries and season to taste. Bring to the boil and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Pour into a casserole dish (Dutch oven). Mix together the flour and baking powder, then rub in the margarine until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the herbs, then gradually add enough of the milk to form a soft dough. Roll into about eight small balls and arrange around the edge of the casserole. Bake in a preheated oven at 220C/425F/gas mark 7 for 20 minutes.
