   cornstarch and toss lightly to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and
   marinate 30 minutes in refrigerator. Prepare sauce and set aside.
   Heat wok or skillet. Add 1/4 cup corn oil and heat to about 400'F.
   Add lamb slices and stir-fry over high heat, stirring continuously,
   until meat loses red color and separates. Remove with slotted spoon
   and drain in colander. Clean out skillet. Reheat skillet, add 1
   tablespoon corn oil and 1 tablespoon sesame oil. Heat until very hot.
   Add garlic and leeks and stir-fry over high heat about 1 1/2 minutes,
   until leeks are just tender. Add cooked lamb and stir-fry sauce and
   toss lightly to coat. Transfer to serving platter.
