Braised Beef

Braised Beef
Braised Beef, I have noted that there are a lot of query on how to cook Chowking’s two popular rice topping meals, pork spareribs with tausi and braised beef. A few months back I made a post on pork spareribs with tausi, today I will share to you on how to cook braised beef. As I mentioned before, I will not recommend their foods, Chowking has over commercialized that the quality of their food has deteriorated.

Braised Beef Recipe

Their food at that time when they are still starting was no doubt great, that is why I frequently replicate their pork spareribs with tausi and braised beef at home. On this post I have cooked a similar braised beef dish but I would not say it is the same to Chowking’s braised beef, but it's way much better and here is how I did it…


Beef Spareribs

1 k. beef spareribs or briskets, cut to serving pieces
1 medium size red bell pepper, julienne
1 medium size carrots, sliced
10 pcs. green beans, trimmed, sliced
1 medium size onion, chopped
1/2 head garlic, chopped
1/4 cup cornstarch
5-8 peppercorns, crushed
2-3 stalks spring onion, chopped
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 c. soy sauce
3 bay leaf
2 pcs. star anise

Cooking procedure:

Braised Beef - Cooking Procedure

Cut beef spareribs or brisket into serving pieces, wash thoroughly. Put in a large pot and pour in soy sauce, add in star anise, garlic, onion, peppercorn, bay leaf and sugar cover with enough water, bring to a boil, and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until beef are tender add more water if necessary. Take out all scum that rises to the surface. And when the liquid is just below the meat season with salt to taste. Thicken sauce with cornstarch diluted in 1/2 cup of water. Add in carrots and green beans, simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Now add in bell pepper and spring onion, cook for another minute or so. Serve hot with rice.

  5. Hi,

    I love filipino food...and the only thing that bothers me is that I never heard about this ingredient 'Star Anise' I want to cook this recipe braised beef...but do I really have to add the star anise into this recipe?? Is there will be a big difference if I'm not gonna add star anise into this receipe? or is there any substitute for this ingredient? Pls. I need some response for this. Thank You!

  6. Yes the star anise will make the difference. you can use few dash of chinese five spice powder as a substitute but then if the powder is available star anise is more common and should be available. Star anise should be available in most supermarket's spice section I have been to different places and they are always available, I hope you can find one soon.
