    1. 1
      Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large, shallow casserole.
    2. 2
      Fry the garlic, ginger, scallions and chili for 3 mins until soft and fragrant. Tip onto a plate. Toss the beef in the flour, add 1 tbsp more oil to the pan, then brown the meat in batches, adding more oil if you need to. It should take about 5 mins to brown each batch properly.
    3. 3
      Add the five-spice and star anise (if using) to the pan, tip in the gingery mix, then fry for 1 min until the spices are fragrant.
    4. 4
      Add the sugar, then the beef and stir until combined. Keep the heat high, then splash in the wine or sherry, scraping up any meaty bits. Heat oven to 300°F
    5. 5
      Pour in the soy and broth (it won't cover the meat completely), bring to a simmer, then tightly cover, transfer to the oven and cook for 1½-2 hrs, stirring the meat halfway through.
    6. 6
      The meat should be very soft, and any sinewy bits should have melted away. Season with more soy.
    7. 7
      This can now be chilled and frozen for up to 1 month.
    8. 8
      Serve with steamed bok choy and white rice.

      Soooo good! This is a dish we always ordered when craving authentic Chinese food. Now, I can make it at home. I add the recommended 2 star anise to get the full, rich flavor this dish is meant to have. (discard before serving) I also use dried chili pepper if I don't have fresh on hand. Excellent over rice.
