  1. Heat the oil in a wok and brown the beef on all sides
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil, cover and reduce the heat and simmer for 45 minutes. I prefer to cover the wok whilst simmering, or it does dry out.
  3. Turn the meat over and add a little more water if the meat is drying out. Remove the cover now so it can reduce a little.
  4. Simmer for a further 45 minutes
  5. If it is too wet, just turn the heat up for a few minutes and reduce a little. I think this should be quite dry, as pictured.
  6. Remove from the wok, discarding the star anise, keep warm and rest for 5 minutes

Serving suggestions

Serve with egg fried rice or even the pictured very special egg fried rice, which was a brilliant surprise and a meal in itself.

This would be good cold too, maybe with a salad.
