  1. Heat a large heavy pot or Dutch oven over high heat. Add oil and heat until hot. Add scallions, garlic, ginger, cinnamon sticks, chile paste and aniseed; stir-fry until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add soy sauce rice wine and sugar. Pour in 5 cups of water and bring to a boil. Add lamb and return to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, partially cover, and simmer until the lamb is just tender, about 1 hour.
