Ingredients (5)

  • 2 tablespoons ground star anise
  • 2 tablespoons ground fennel seeds
  • 2 teaspoons crushed cassia
  • 2 teaspoons crushed Szechuan peppercorns
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves


Highly aromatic Chinese five-spice powder enhances stir-fried vegetables, chicken, and especially fatty meats like pork and duck. Five-spice powder isn’t hot but is quite concentrated, so use it in small quantities. (Heat-treated Szechuan pepper may now be legally imported to the United States.)


  1. 1Combine ground star anise, ground fennel seeds, crushed cassia, crushed Szechuan peppercorns, and ground cloves.
