Our household has a simple beef brisket recipe like this ...
- Saute shallots, garlic, star anise, sichuan pepper in a large saucepan until brown and aromatic
- add large cubed beef briskets, a little water, light soy sauce, oyster sauce and slowly simmer for a couple hours
- turn up the heat to evaporate and concentrate the juice, then add more oyster sauce for taste, dark soy sauce for colour, rose extract wine for fragrance
Should be easy enough ... takes 15 minutes of preparation at the beginning, 2 hours of web surfing, and then 5 more minutes at the end.
