Boil the beef in water for about 10 minutes. Then slice it into small pieces.
In a hot pan, add 3 tablespoons of oil. Introduce 1 teaspoon of Sichuan peppercorns and cook until the aroma comes out. Take them out and discard. Then add in 1 onion and cook until softened. Now add 3 slices ginger and cook until the aroma comes out. Follow by 2 stalks of scallions, 3 cloves of garlic, 1 cinnamon, 2 dried red chilies, 2-star anises, 1 bay leaf, 2 pieces of cloves and cook until the aroma comes out. Now add the seasoning 1 tablespoon of chili bean paste, 6 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of rice wine, a pinch of white pepper and stir-fry until fragrant. Add the beef and stir-fry. Pour in 4 cups of boiling water. Put in 1 tablespoon of yellow rock sugar, 2 carrots, and 1 tomato. Cook on low heat for about 2 hours.
After 1 hour of cooking, we are going to take about 5 tablespoons of beef broth from the side of the pan. And use it for the pickled sour mustard.
Here we have 8 ounces of pickled sour mustard that I’ve cut and soaked in water for 1 about an hour already. Now let’s squeeze the water out.
Here is a pan, let’s add the beef stock. The pickled, a dash of soy sauce, a pinch of five-spice powder, a pinch of sugar and stir-fry until absorbed.
In another pot of boiling water, blanch 4 Shanghai bok choy for 30 seconds.
Then boil 16 ounces of noodles in the same pot for about 5 minutes. Test with chopsticks to see if they break. If they break, then they are ready. Transfer the noodles to a bowl.
Now the beef is also ready. Place the beef and some soup in the bowl. Lastly, garnish with the Shanghai bok choy, pickled, and cilantro.
