Awesome! The star anise and caramelised onions gave a wonderful aroma and it all came together perfectly. The long vigourous cooking of the gravy is a little different to how I've normally made gravy in the past but really releases the flavours of the bay leaves, cloves and star anise.

Excellent dish!!!! Wonderful flavor!!! My local store doesn't carry star anise, but other than that I followed the recipe as written. I will be making this again and hopefully can find the star anise at my Asian market.

Simple and tasty! The ale, star anise and cloves filled the kitchen with a wonderful aroma while the gravy was cooking. Very good comfort food. Thanks English Rose. Made for ZWT3.
