Spiced Beef with Soy Sauce
1 3- to 4-pound boneless beef chuck roast
1 tablespoon dry sherry
1/3 cup soy sauce

1 or 2 star anise
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Put ingredients in a heavy pot. Add 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer slowly, covered, for 3 hours or until tender. Turn occasionally for even flavor and to prevent sticking to the bottom of the pot. Check the liquid level every hour, and add ¼ cup to ½ cup water if necessary.
Serve hot or refrigerate until cold. Serve in slices.
