Anise Molasses Brisket Braised In A Wok Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 small eggplant
2 lb beef brisket, trimmed of excess fat
2 tbsp peanut oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
1 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
6 star anise
3 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 cup dry sherry
2 cup beef broth
3 tbsp dark molasses
1 salt and pepper, to taste
8 dried black fungus (tree ears)
1 tomato, finely chopped
4 scallions, sliced
1 tsp asian sesame oil

Recipe Preparation

Here, beef brisket takes on an Asian flare. Slices of meat are
braised in an aromatic stock seasoned with star anise, soy sauce,
ginger, garlic, red pepper and dark molasses. As a final step, pureed
eggplant is stirred in, for flavor and thickening.

Pierce the eggplant several times with the tines of a fork. Place in a
preheated 400F oven and roast for 3 minutes, or until shriveled and
soft. Set aside. Slice the brisket against the grain into 1/4-inch
thick slices.

Heat the oil in a large wok or large deep skillet. When it begins to
smoke, add half of the beef and cook, stirring, until browned. Remove
and set aside.

Add remaining beef, and cook, stirring until browned. Remove and set
aside. Add the onion, ginger, garlic, crushed pepper, star anise and
soy sauce to wok and stir-fry for 10 seconds.

Return beef to wok, along with the sherry, broth and molasses. Stir to
blend and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer over low beat
for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until the beef is tender.

While beef is cooking, soak fungus in hot water to cover. When
swelled and softened, drain and rinse well; set aside.

Cut the stem end from the cooked eggplant. Split in half lengthwise
and scoop the flesh into a food processor or blender. Puree.

Add eggplant, drained fungus and tomatoes to beef and cook for 5
minutes longer. Stir in scallions and drizzle with sesame oil. Serve
with rice, if desired.

Serves 4.
