Heat the sesame oil in a wok or fry pan and put half the meat patties into it and fry them for five or six minutes on medium heat, then turn them over and fry them about the same length of time on their other side; or they can be grilled on both sides about six or seven five minutes per side. Remove them to a preheated oven-proof plate and put them in the oven until the second batch are fried or grilled.
3. Put the preheated platter on another so hands are not burned. Serve with any well-seasoned condiments.
