Beef in China is often tough and braising is therefore the preferred method of cooking it. Chinese cooks long ago learned to make a virtue of this necessity by using spices and seasonings during the long braising process to imbue the meat with subtle and complex flavours. This recipe is really a Chinese version of a beef stew and uses many of the favourite seasonings of northern China. Be sure to use an inexpensive cut of beef such as brisket or shin. One of the ingredients is Chinese white radish sometimes called mooli. It can be bought in many greengrocers and in Chinese and Asian grocers. If you cannot find it you could use turnips or carrots instead. Plain steamed rice is a perfect accompaniment.
