|1 pounds||Lean beef|
|4 tablespoons||Soy sauce|
|1 teaspoon||Prepared mustard|
|3 drops||Sesame oil; more or less|
|Parchment or waxed paper|
|Oil for deep-frying|
1. Cut beef against the grain in slices ½ inch thick, then in rectangles 1 by 1-½ inches.
2. Mince garlic, and combine with soy sauce, sherry, sugar, salt, prepared mustard, pepper and sesame oil. Mix well, then add to beef and toss gently to coat. Let stand 1 hour, turning meat occasionally.
3. Drain well, discarding marinade. Then wrap beef in paper envelopes (see "HOW-TO SECTION"). Meanwhile, heat oil.
4. Add beef a few envelopes at a time, and deep-fry until done (about 5 minutes). Drain on paper toweling and serve beef hot in wrappers.
NOTE: The wrappers help hold in flavor and retain heat. To eat, the diner breaks the envelope open with chopsticks or fork and discards the paper.
