You’ll Love This Stewed Beef Brisket With Radish

Stewed beef brisket with radish is a famous traditional dish in southern China. It is a good winter recipe because the beef and star anise contained in it are warming and help keep you comfortable in the winter season. Try it for yourself:


  • 2 pounds beef brisket (beef tendons can also be used)
  • About 2 pounds daikon radish, peeled and chopped into 1 inch chunks
  • 1/2 pound carrots, peeled and cut into 1 inch slices
  • 1 tbs. cooking oil
  • 5 thin slices of ginger
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp chee hou sauce (available at Chinese grocery store)
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 tbsp chicken flavored bouillon
  • A pinch of white pepper
  • 1 to 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp chopped green onion


  1. Bring about 1 gallon of water to a boil. Add the whole beef brisket, and bring to a rolling boil over high heat.
  2. Lower the heat to medium, and allow it to continue boiling for 10 to 15 minutes. You will see a film and foam rise to the surface.
  3. Turn off the heat, put the brisket under cold running water, and rinse for about 3 minutes. Cut the beef into 1 inch thick pieces. Set aside. Wash the pot.
  4. Heat the pot on the stove. Add the oil, then add the ginger, garlic, and star anise. Stir for 10 seconds until fragrant, then add the beef. Stir for 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Add the chee hou sauce, dark soy sauce, soy sauce, and chicken flavored bouillon
  6. Check the pot every 20 minutes. As the water boils off, add more water.
  7. Add the daikon radish and carrot. Stir well, and simmer for another 45 minutes.
  8. Mix the cornstarch with 1/4 cup of cool water, add it to the pot, and stir well. Add the green onion.
  9. Turn off the heat.
