Cook Time

Cheaper cuts of meat are always suitable for marinating and long, slow cooking. Ask your butcher for thin flank steak, a tasty, circular piece of meat that is tender when cooked slowly. There are several stages to this recipe but none are time-consuming, and the flavours that hint at northern Asian are evident in the vegetables, flat noodles and delicious star anise aromas of the beef.
