Five Spice Beef

  2 tablespoons oil (peanut or plain vegetable oil)
  3 slices ginger
  2 cloves garlic, chopped
  1 onion, sliced
  2 1/2 lbs. beef stew meat, cut into 1" cubes
  2 tablespoon sherry or other white wine
  1 whole star anise
  1 1/2 inch length cinnamon stick
  1/4-1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder (amount depends on how strong your five-spice is)
  3 tablespoon soy sauce
  1 1/3 teaspoon sugar
  2 cups beef bouillon
  parsley for garnish (optional)

    Heat Dutch oven over high heat with oil. Add ginger, garlic, and onion. Stir-fry for 1 minute until fragrant. Add beef chunks and stir-fry for 2 - 2 1/2 minutes over high heat until light brown. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Cover tightly, and cook over medium-low heat for 2 - 2 1/2 hours. To serve, garnish with parsley.

    This dish can be prepared ahead of time and reheated when ready to serve; it tastes even better after a day after the flavors have a chance to blend.
