Beef Shanks Braised in Soy Sauce
with Cinnamon and Star Anise

Gourmet February 1996

8 cups water
1 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup Scotch
1/3 cup sugar
8 slices fresh gingerroot, each about
the size of a quarter, flattened
with the flat side of a heavy knife
4 scallions, flattened with the flat
side of a heavy knife
Two 3-inch cinnamon sticks
Two 4-inch strips fresh orange zest,
removed with a vegetable peeler
4 meaty cross-cut sections beef shanks
(about 4 1/4 pounds total)
A 7- to 8-ounce package dried rice-stick
noodles (rice vermicelli)
3/4 pound carrots, cut diagonally
into 1/4-inch slices
3/4 pound turnips, peeled, halved,
and cut into 1/4-inch slices
Fresh coriander [cilantro] leaves

In a 9-quart kettle combine water, soy sauce, Scotch, sugar, gingerroot, scallions, cinnamon, zest, and star anise and simmer mixture 10 minutes. Add beef shanks and cook, partially covered with lid 1/2 inch ajar, at a
bare simmer 2 hours, or until meat is very tender.
About 15 minutes before meat is done, in a large bowl, soak noodles in warm water to cover 5 minutes and bring a large saucepan of salted water
to a boil. Drain noodles in a colander and boil them 5 minutes.
In colander drain noodles and rinse under cold water. Drain the noodles
well and transfer to a large bowl.
Transfer the meat with a slotted spoon to a cutting board. With slotted spoon remove gingerroot, scallions, cinnamon sticks, zest and star anise
from broth and discard. Add the carrots and turnips to broth and simmer
until just tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer vegetables with slotted spoon
to noodles. Boil broth until reduced to about 7 cups. While the broth is reducing, discard the bones and gristle and cut the meat across the grain
into thin slices.
Divide the noodles, vegetables and meat among 8 bowls and ladle the
broth over them. Sprinkle mixture with coriander [cilantro].
Serves 8 as a main course.
