What is Ground star anise powder?
Ground star anise is a main ingredient in Chinese Five-Spice powder and Vietnamese pho. It’s also part of the Port Royal flavor profile – a mixture of chocolate, grapefruit, and star anise. Use this star anise powder as a rub ingredient for roast pork or beef.
Ground star anise has a strong liquorice flavour with warm, sweet notes. The ground star anise powder is made by grinding whole star anise, known for its characteristic star shape as the name suggests. Star anise is one of the vital spices within Chinese cooking for pork and chicken dishes.
The powder is one of the key ingredients in the famous Chinese Five Spice, which is used for meat rubs and curry bases. Try adding ground star anise when making duck à l’orange or a sweet apple tart.
Whole and ground star anise are used differently in cooking. The whole pods are added to braised dishes, soups, and stews to infuse flavor and are removed at the end of cooking. Ground star anise powder is used similarly to other ground spices. Powdered star anise begins to lose its flavor shortly after it is ground up, so the best method is to buy whole star anise and grind it as needed. The pods and seeds can be ground together.
