500g beef shin (cut into bite-size cubes)
350g daikon (cut into bite sizes)
2 thumb size young ginger (sliced thinly)
1 cinnamon bark
1 star anise
1 tbsp white peppercorn
½ tbsp Sichuan peppercorn
3 shallots (chopped)
1 bulb of garlic (peeled)
2 bay leaves
½ tbsp fermented spicy bean paste
3 tbsps dark soy sauce
3 tbsps light soy sauce
20g rock sugar
2 stalks of spring onion (tie into a knot)
1L water


  • Heat up some cooking oil in your pressure cooker. If you are using a multi-cooker, use open lid cooking mode.
  • Add the shallots, garlic, ginger, cinnamon bark and fry until fragrant.
  • Once the aromatics are fragrant, add rock sugar and fry until caramelized.
  • Then add beef shin and fry for 5 mins, followed by dark soy sauce and fry to coat the beef well.
  • Add light soy sauce and fermented spicy bean paste, mix well and fry for 2 minutes.
  • Put the white peppercorns, Sichuan peppercorns and star anise in a small muslin bag and put the bag into the pot. At this time, also add bay leaves, spring onion, daikon and water.
  • Put the lid on and pressure cook for 30 – 40 minutes.
  • Once the pressure cooking is done, open your pot and remove all the ingredients including the beef shin from the pot using a strainer. Do this carefully because the beef shin is extremely tender at this point.
  • Lastly, add salt to taste and thicken the sauce to your desired consistency with cornstarch solution.
  • Before serving, blanch your favourite leafy vegetables and noodles. Assemble all the ingredients in a bowl – add in beef shin and daikon as well as the delicious gravy over the noodles and serve hot.
