mystery spice for Chinese beef stew?

Thanks. FYI, the leftovers were reincarnated as beef noodle soup with fish cake, poached egg, and shiitake...

mystery spice for Chinese beef stew?

Hi - just had a homecooked lunch with my parents: beef stew...fried rice...cabbage soup with mushrooms & sardines. For the beef stew my stepmom used a spice that is called "eight angles" in Chinese (after the shape of the seed pod -- see photo, with basil leaf for scale). They couldn't tell me the English name...anyone know? Thanks.
