    1       tb           Rice wine
      1/2   ts           Sugar
    2       ts           Cornstarch
      1/2   ts           Baking powder
    5       ts           Sesame oil
    5       ts           Soy sauce
    1       tb           Sesame seeds
    1 1/2   ts           Hot bean paste
    1 1/2   ts           Hoisin sauce
    1 1/2   ts           Oyster sauce
    1       t            Minced ginger
      2/3   lb           Beef tenderloin
                         Peanut oil (2-4 T)
    4                    Lettuce leaves
                         -(or less -- use
                         -bok-choy if you
                         -can get it)
   Mix together all of the marinade ingredients.  Slice
   the beef across the grain into thin, diagonal pieces
   (about the size of your smallest finger). Marinate for
   about half an hour.
   Heat the wok until a drop of water dropped into it
   dances around as it boils. Add enough oil to coat the
   wok and saute the ginger. Stir-fry the lettuce.
   Stir-fry the beef (in batches so the wok doesn't cool
   down too much).
   Reduce the heat.  Return the vegetables to the wok.
   Add the topping.  Stir around until everything is
   mixed and heated evenly.  Serve.
   *  Very hot, very simple, very good beef stir-fry --
   This recipe has been floating around for years back
   east, where it’s also known as Hot Flaming Death.
   *  Also add any other vegetables that you feel like.
   Sliced carrots or broccoli are especially nice.
   *  Hot bean paste also goes by the name Szechuan bean
   sauce etc.  This is the main “spicy” ingredient and
   should be handled with care. Vary this ingredient to
   : Difficulty:  easy.
   : Time:  preparation:  20 minutes, cooking:  3 minutes.
   : Precision:  No need to measure.
