Thank you my wife and daughter loved it. I have gotten away from velveting. I mix with dark soy, rice wine and corn starch and let it marinade at least 30 minutes. Then I sear it in the wok. It works good without the extra calories. I will post the recipe after I get it typed up.

How about a recipe to go with that beautiful picture, PPO? You're making me drool again!

Okay, I'm confused. I have read that meat can be velveted in oil or in water/stock. What you do sounds like what I have read is velveting.

I marinade it like I will be velveting but I don't drown it in water or oil. I have done the oil one and it works. But this way is better, does require a hot wok but I love the way it turns out. I don't think a non-stick wok would work.

Roast tenderloin of beef, mashed potatoes and a veggie medley. For dessert - coffee and a decadent chocolate cake with a ganache topping.

I pulled out a bag of my frozen spaghetti sauce to go on top of some fresh cheese ravioli from Trader Joe's. We also had green salad and garlic toast.
