Traditionally, Chinese Five Spice Powder is thought to balance the yin and yang in your food. The sweetness of cinnamon is balanced by rustic flavors of fennel, cloves, star anise, and black peppercorns. This seasoning is used mainly as a rub or marinade ingredient for pork or duck as it brings out their savory, naturally salty flavor. It also combines well with garlic, scallions, ginger, and soy sauce. It's often used during braising, turning inexpensive cuts of meat into rich delicacies thanks to a prolonged cooking time at a low temperature. Marinate steak in a five spice rub and serve with a red wine and five spice reduction. Chinese Five Spice Powder is successfully used in small quantities with lighter meats, too, like chicken or fish, and in stir-fries. It is also an exotic substitute for cinnamon or clove in cookies and spice cakes.
