Chinese Braised Beef Brisket & Tendon Recipe | 柱侯蘿蔔炆牛筋腩

Chinese Braised Beef Brisket & Tendon Recipe | 柱侯蘿蔔炆牛筋腩

CHINESE BRAISED BEEF BRISKET TENDON NOMSS FOOD BLOG VANCOUVER

柱侯蘿蔔炆牛筋腩 Braised beef brisket and tendon is one of my favourite Chinese comfort dishes. I love it with rice or with soup noodles at wonton restaurants. Often noodle houses always advertise that their beef brisket is their specialty – especially their sauce. Finding the perfect bowl of beef brisket is often on top of my list whenever I visit Asia. Recreating this dish at home has always been my dream but I hate having to stew the tendons for HOURS! Luckily, this Instant Pot, it only takes 30 mins! This pressure cooker is a dream to use! I bought mine from Amazon and it was delivered the the next day with Amazon Prime!

Anyone with a busy schedule or has to care for babies need this in their life! Without this I can not imagine being able to cook with my baby! It is so easy to use and is such a time saver! Often I like to deliberately cook extra – store a portion in the fridge for lunch the next day, a portion to make into noodle soup, and freeze a portion to eat later in the week.

The soul of braised beef brisket and tendons is the Chu Hou Paste 柱侯醬. I usually just buy Lee Kum Kee paste which can be found at any local Asian supermarket. Chu Hou Paste mainly is made of soybeans, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds and spices. Of course, you can make the sauce from scratch, but isn’t it so much easier to buy instant?

CHINESE BRAISED BEEF BRISKET TENDON NOMSS FOOD BLOG VANCOUVER

Before cooking the brisket and tendons, always remember blanch it in a big pot of boiling water to remove the impurities for approximately 5 minutes. After run it in a cold bath.

Cut the brisket and tendon into small cubes. I like to cut them approximately 3 inches wide since they shrink quite a lot in size after being braised. Sometimes the tendons are still too tough to cut. If this is the case than just cook it whole and cut it afterwards!

CHINESE BRAISED BEEF BRISKET TENDON NOMSS FOOD BLOG VANCOUVER

Heat oil in the wok at medium high heat (or Saute mode in the Instant Pot – when Instant Pot reaches the given working temperature, it displays “Hot” and you can start sautéing). Add in garlic, ginger and shallots and a splash of cooking wine and let evaporate. Then add in Chu Hou Paste and toss in brisket and tendons. Once everything is covered remove from wok and put into the Instant Pot.

 

Pro Tip: adding some rock sugar will help soften beef briskets!

 

CHINESE BRAISED BEEF BRISKET TENDON NOMSS FOOD BLOG VANCOUVER

Alternatively, you can saute the above steps directly in the Instant Pot. The pot heats up very quickly so I like to have everything chopped and prepared before this step.

 

CHINESE BRAISED BEEF BRISKET TENDON NOMSS FOOD BLOG VANCOUVER

Add in rock sugar, water, star anise, light and dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, and corn flour. Pressure cook for 30 minutes if you like a bit of bite in your beef brisket / 40 minutes if you prefer your meat softer!

Cubed daikon can be added at the very end and pressure cooked for and additional 2 minutes.

四季 Grand Seasons Chinese Restaurant is a humble diner in Coquitlam. It is located just across from the Burquitlam SkyTrain station at 555 Clarke Road. Our friends introduced this place to us after we were complaining about eating at the same restaurants in Coquitlam Tri-Cities area. Everything was pretty promising on our first visit but then quickly declined from there on. We came here three times and probably will not go back.

Salt and Pepper Deep Fried Tofu: Crispy outside with jalapeno and garlic. Great with a side of congee.

Century Egg and Salty Pork Congee: A nice consistency of water to rice ratio in this congee. However, there was not a lot ingredients and I like Neptune Wonton’s pillowy congee base much, much more,

Stir Fry Beef Rice Noodles: A nice balance of flavour however this dish was to greasy and lacked heat from the wok.

Spicy Marinated Jelly Fish with Sliced Beef Shank: This was one of my favorite dishes. I had ordered it a few times. However, if I had to choice, I think East Pearl in Port Coquitlam does it better. Their jelly fish has a better mouth feel and bouncy texture compared to Grand Seasons which is a little soggy.

Overall, Grand Seasons is suitable for a quick bite to satisfy the hunger. They lack consistency in presentation and execution. Sometimes the fishes are still dirty with a greasy film – that alone is a deal breaker!
