Part stir-fry, part stew, this aromatic, hearty dish draws flavor and texture from shiitake mushrooms, bok choy and Chinese five-spice powder: a blend of cinnamon, star anise, ginger, anise and cloves.

The recipe calls for Chinese rice wine, which has a distinctive taste, but it's not essential. You can substitute sake or any dry white wine.
