1 kg beef (uncut)
1 piece beef cube
4 cups of water
2 tbsp ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 medium-sized onion, minced
3 pieces star anise
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp cooking oil
3 tbsp of green onions, finely chopped (optional)
In a pot, put the water and bring to a boil and add the beef and broth cubes. But if you have pressure cooker you can cook the beef in 30 minutes.
When the meat is tender, remove and cool it down. Slice it to cubes and set it aside. Don't throw the stock used for boiling.
Make the ingredients ready.
Saute the garlic, ginger, and onion.
Put-in the sliced meat and saute for about 3 minutes.
Add the soy sauce, beef stock, sugar, star anise and let it simmer for 15 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
Serve with Garlic Fried Rice and soup
I suggest, if you want to try this recipe make sure you have the star anise, as this recipe will never be beef pares without star anise.
