2 Tablespoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
2 Tablespoons lard
1 two-inch square of tangerine peel, fresh or dried and soaked, then minced

Then shape the meat into one-inch balls and set on a deep heat-proof plate Put plate in steamer over boiling water and steam for seven minutes, then remove the beef balls to a hot plate and cover them with another plate, to keep them warm.
