White turnip beef stew recipe is a classic traditional ancient Chinese food recipe. Stew is one of my favorite cooking method, because this method can make food very tasty. I remember when I brought white turnip in a supermarket in Miami, the cashier asked me what was that and how to cook it. I told her this is turnip (白萝卜), but I only know the Chinese name at that time. So, now I have a chance to introduce this amazing recipe for you. Chinese think white turnip can help with the digestive system. I also posted some stew recipes, such as beer duck, chicken mushroom soup, egg tofu shrimp.

white turnip: x 1/2
ginger: 3 pieces
green onion: x 1
aniseed: x 1

1. follow the lines when you cut beef brisket, this will make beef easier be cooked.
2. add boiled water
3. because soybean paste and soy sauce contain salt, so before you add salt make sure it is not too salty.
