Think Spice…Think Star Anise!

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    I love the flavor of star anise with beef. You don’t particularly notice when it is there, but you definitely notice when it is not, especially when you are trying to make an authentic Chinese dish.

    I loooove star anise. It’s one of those flavors that is hard to pick out but truly makes a difference. It’s funny because I was thinking about pineapple and star anise this morning. I love that combination. I have never included it in with beef so this might be a thing I need to try. Thanks for sharing this!
