Beef Pares

Finally, my aspiration to cook beef pares has come to reality. And I could say that I did it quite well for my first try.
What really amazed me with this recipe is the star anise as one of the key-player in making this dish really distinguished. It gives the unique aroma and perfect blend of spice. Since I’ve never really use star anise before, it really impressed me on how this condiment turned a simple dish into something very tempting.
Much about star anise… The real star of this post is my Beef Pares =D …. Well, with the help of modern-day technology, browsing its ingredients and detailed procedure has never been a hassle.… Not to prolong, here’s how it goes… =D
