Five Spice Brisket
Five Spice Brisket

Ingredients

Method

  • 1kg rolled beef brisket
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 star anise
  • 4 grated cloves of garlic
  • 2 tsp Chinese 5 spice
  • 5cm piece of ginger, grated
  • 4 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Make your marinade by putting all the ingredients, minus the beef, into a bowl and mixing until the sugar is dissolved. Add the beef, coat in the marinade, and leave overnight in the fridge.
  • Put the brisket in a pressure cooker, add 500ml of water to the marinade, and pour it all over the meat. Cook on a high heat until it reaches pressure, then turn the heat to low and cook for 90 minutes. Remove from the heat, and allow to depressurise.
  • Shred the meat and serve with the marinade poured all over, along with some green veggies of your choice, or simply with some crusty bread or rice.
