Though peanut has never been my favorite nut but I do enjoy eating Braised Peanut 焖花生 whenever I dine at a Chinese restaurant.
After a disaster attempt on peanut sweet soup, I wanted to see whether braising peanut will be successful.

200g shelled raw peanuts1 star anise 1 medium size cinnamon stick 2 Tbsp of soy sauce 1 Tbsp of oyster sauce 3 tsp of dark soy sauce 3 slices of ginger80g garlic5 pieces of rock sugar 3g saltPepper to taste 2 cup water 
6 cups chicken broth
Rinsed and soak the peanut over night.  Discard water and rinse again.
In a big pot, add peanut and 2 cups of water and bring to a brisk boil.  Remove.
Dry and reheat the pot, add a little oil and sautee the ginger and star anise until fragrant.
Pour in 6 Cups of water and the rest of the ingredients.
Bring water to a boil and then lower the heat and let it simmer for 1 – 2 hours or until peanut is soft.
