    Chinese style braised beef

    6 garlic cloves , thinly sliced
    good thumb-size piece fresh root ginger , peeled and shredded
    1 bunch spring onions
    sliced 1 red chilli, deseeded and thinly sliced
    1½ kg braising beef , cut into large pieces (we used ox cheek)
    1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
    2 star anise
    2 tsp light muscovado sugar
    3 tbsp Chinese cooking wine or dry sherry
    3 tbsp dark soy sauce , plus more to serve
    500ml beef stock

    Serves 6

    1. Heat Frylight in a large, shallow casserole. Fry the garlic, ginger, onions and chilli for 3 mins until soft and fragrant. Tip onto a plate. Toss the beef in the pan, then brown the meat in batches. It should take about 5 mins to brown each batch properly.
    2. Add the five-spice and star anise (if using) to the pan, tip in the gingery mix, then fry for 1 min until the spices are fragrant. Add the sugar, then the beef and stir until combined. Keep the heat high, then splash in the wine or sherry, scraping up any meaty bits. Heat oven to 150C/fan 130C/gas 2.
    3. Pour in the soy and stock (it won't cover the meat completely), bring to a simmer, then tightly cover, transfer to the oven and cook for 1½-2 hrs, stirring the meat halfway through. The meat should be very soft, and any sinewy bits should have melted away. Season with more soy. This can now be chilled and frozen for up to 1 month.
    4. Nestle the cooked bok choi into the pan and coat in the sauce.
