The very first time I had this was with a couple of Chinese friends at a restaurant that catered to Chinese. Actually they had a special menu just for Chinese people. It is like a beef stew and the star anise gives it a great flavor.

How to Make Anise Beef

Step-by-Step

  1. Use a cleaver to cut beef into 1-inch cubes. Place star anise and peppercorns on a 3-inch square of cheesecloth. Bring corners together and tie with kitchen twine.
  2. Heat oil in a large saucepan over high heat for 1 minute. Stir fry garlic and ginger until garlic is golden, 30 seconds.
  3. Add beef cubes. Stir fry until lightly browned about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add cheesecloth bag, wine, soy sauce, sugar and dried orange peel; mix well. Cover and cook 5 minutes. Add 2/3 cup water.
  5. Reduce heat to low and cook 1 1/2 hours. Add carrot and continue cooking 45 minutes or until beef is very tender and carrot is cooked.
  6. Remove cheesecloth bag and discard. Serve stew hot over rice.
