Chinese Beef Stew with Chickpeas and Star Anise

Chinese Beef Stew with Chickpeas and Star Anise

This hearty, aromatic stew, called niu rou fang zang, is a dish from the Hui people, or Chinese ethnic Muslims. Star anise, five-spice powder and Sichuan peppercorns combine to yield warm, subtly sweet and gently tingling spice notes, while a generous dose of herbs adds freshness. We use beef shanks, as the bones contribute richness to the simple braise. Serve with steamed or stir-fried greens and rice or warmed flatbread.

Ingredients
  • 2

    pounds bone-in beef shanks (about 1 inch thick), trimmed

  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper

Directions
  1. 01
    Heat the oven to 325°F with a rack in the lower-middle position. Season the shanks on both sides with 1 teaspoon salt and 2 teaspoons black pepper; set aside.
