1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 large nappa cabbage, about 1 pound
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 Tablespoon shredded ginger
1 teaspoon cornstarch

2. Peel the carrots and shred them.
3. Braise both in a sauce of stock, sesame oil, and soy sauce for ten minutes, then drain and set aside, reserving the liquid. Keep it warm.
4. Boil a large pot of water.
5. Wash the nappa cabbage, separate twelve outer leaves and put them into the boiling water a few at a time for 1 minute, then drain. If coarse end is very thick, after draining then, cut away the thickness by slicing it in half.
6. Shred the remaining leaves and put them into the reserved hot stock and let them sit there for five minutes, then drain.
7. Mix the shredded mushrooms, carrots, and shredded cabbage with salt, ginger root and sesame oil.
8. Place one twelfth of the shredded mixture or a limp cabbage leaf and roll from the thick end to the thin to form a cylinder. Place on a plate, seam side down.
