Get this simple braised beef recipe for savory-sweet tender chunks of beef that are rich in flavor and spices. Chowking’s braised beef rice toppings inspired this dish.


  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 medium onion – chopped
  • 12 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1 pound beef brisket – cut into cubes
  • 23 cups water
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 34 pieces star anise
  • 34 pieces cloves
  • 2 pieces bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 cup carrot – cut round about an inch thick
  • ½ tablespoon cornstarch – dissolved in ¼ cup water
  • spring onions – chopped, for garnish


In a medium-sized pot, heat the oil. Then, sauté the garlic and onion until they are slightly tender. Add the beef chunk and sear it in hot oil on all sides, about 5-7 minutes total.

Bring the remaining ingredients, except the carrots, cornstarch, and spring onions, to a simmer, then cover with a lid and reduce to a low heat. Allow it to cook for 40-50 minutes, or until the meat is tender with a fork. If the beef is not yet tender, you may need to add some water.

Stir in the carrots and cornstarch mixture and cook for 5 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced and thickened.

Garnish with chopped spring onions and serve on top of steaming rice bowls.
