1 cup minced beef
1 teaspoon thin soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
dash ground white pepper
1 teaspoon cornstarch

3. Bring five cups water to just under a boil, gently add the tied mushroom packages, the celery sticks, and simmer for five minutes, then add the bok cai leaves and simmer another four or five minutes, then serve the mushroom packages, one to a person, some leaves, and some liquid in a soup bowl to each person.
