750gshoulder steak(diced into 5cm chunks and season with salt & pepper)
250gshallots(remove skin and leave whole)
2red finger chillies(de-seeded and sliced)
3whole star anise
5cmpiece cinnamon stick
1tspcrushed sichuan peppercorns
1tbspdark soy sauce
2tbsplight soy sauce
1Knorr rich beef stockpot
Heat the sunflower oil in a oven proof casserole dish that has a lid. Add the seasoned beef in batches and take care to brown evenly over a medium-high heat. Remove the beef into a dish and set aside for later.
Turn the hob down a little and using the same casserole, brown the whole shallots over a medium heat. Once nicely golden, remove into a separate dish and set aside for later.
Add more sunflower oil to the casserole if necessary and over a medium heat add the sliced onions and saute for 3-4 minutes before adding the garlic, ginger and chilli. Continue to saute for a further 2-3 minutes. Add all the dry spices to the pan and cook for a further minute, stirring the mixture to release the aromatics in the spice.
Add the dark and light soy sauce, white wine, rice mirin, beef stock pot and water to the casserole dish and stir to combine all the ingredients. Return the beef to the casserole along with any juices from the plate.
Cover the casserole with a tight-fitting lid and place in a pre-heated oven at 150CFan and cook for 2 hours, stir the casserole half way through.
After 2 hours remove the casserole from the oven and stir in the shallots that were browned earlier. Put the lid back on and return the casserole to the oven for a further 30 minutes. If you think the sauce is looking a bit thick then add a little water at this stage. Once cooked serve with steamed rice.
To serve you may wish to reduce the sauce. To do this remove all the meat and vegetables from the casserole and place the sauce over a high heat to reduce for 5 minutes, or until you achieve a consistency you like. Return the meat and vegetables to the casserole, mix through and serve with some steamed rice.
