To prepare meat: Use sharp knife to cut beef into 1 1/2. cubes. Combine
soy sauce, bean sauce, anise seed, cinnamon stick, orange zest, and water
in bowl and set aside.

Heat casserole or heavy pan. Add oil and heat until hot. Add green
onions, garlic, ginger, and dried red pepper flakes. Stir-fry until
fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add soy sauce mixture and bring to a boil. Add
meat cubes and return to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer,
skimming surface to remove any impurities and fat, until beef is tender.
Remove cinnamon stick.

To prepare noodles and vegetables: Meanwhile, bring 4 quarts water in a
large pan to boil. Add noodles and cook until tender, about 4 minutes.
Drain. Combine chicken broth, salt, and sesame oil in large pan and bring
to boil. Add spinach and green onions. Remove from heat.

Portion noodles into individual serving bowls. Ladle spinach and broth
over noodles and then spoon beef and about 1/3 c. cooking liquid over each
portion. Serve Immediately. This is a really good recipe. It's fun to make,
too, so I hope this re-instills the fun of cooking into you.
