Hunan Lamb

1 pound boneless leg of lamb
1 large egg
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon rice wine
2 cups vegetable oil, for passing through
For the sauce:
2 Tablespoons rice wine
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vinegar (distilled white, red wine, rice, or sherry)
1 tablespoon hot bean paste
pinch of ground white pepper
For the slurry:
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch, dissolved in 2 tablespoons water
A few 1-inch chunks of lamb fat
1 leek, white part only
5 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
3 scallions, trimmed and slice into 1 inch-long segments

Cooking Instructions

Cut the lamb across the grain into 1/4 inch thick slices, approximately 2 inches long and 1 inch wide. In a medium bowl, mix the lamb slices with the egg, cornstarch, and wine. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

In the meantime, prepare the leek: Trimming for only the white section, cut the leek into large segments. Wash well and dry.

For the sauce, mix all the ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Have the slurry ready in another bowl.

Toss the lamb fat and garlic into the wok. Stir-fry until the fat is rendered and the garlic is golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the chunks of fat from the wok. Add the leek and green onion and stir-fry for about 20 seconds.

Add the lamb and the sauce mixture, and stir-fry for another 10 seconds to allow the meat to absorb some of the liquid.

Turn down the heat, or move the wok off the burner. Add the slurry and stir rapidly until the sauce thickens, about 20 seconds. Serve immediately with rice.
