FOR THE BEEF MASTER STOCK
3 litres water
6cm piece ginger, sliced
4 cloves garlic
1 onion, cut into chunks
4 spring onions, cut into 5cm pieces 2 red chillis (fresh or dried)
3 strips dried orange
3 star anise
1 cinnamon quill
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup light soy sauce
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup shaoxing wine

1.5-2kg beef short ribs
FOR THE KIMCHI NASHI SLAW
2 cups kimchi, with juices, roughly chopped
1 nashi, cut into quarters, cored then julienned
2 spring onions, sliced
KIWI SALSA
2 kiwi fruit green or yellow, peeled and diced
1 spring onion, finely sliced
2 tablespoons finely chopped coriander leaves

Soft tortillas

Favourite hot sauce (I used Alderman’s kawakawa salsa verde and a sriracha sauce)

I often keep a batch of this strained stock in the freezer – by adding fresh ingredients each time and enough water to bring the stock up to 3 litres, the flavour becomes more nuanced.
