Meat Marinade and Velvetization:

1.   To marinate: For 10 lbs. sliced or diced meat, dissolve 0.4 lb. (7/8 C.) Marinade Seasoning (Gluten Free Starport 356) with 1-1/4 C. water and 1 C. oil.
2.   Mix well then add meat and marinate for 30 minutes or more. May be covered in a container and refrigerate overnight.
3.   To velvetize: Oil blanch meat in deep fryer at 350 F in 2-pound batches for 60-80 seconds, un-clump the meat pieces, remove and drain off oil.
(Oil blanching seals the juice in the sliced meat surfaces and can be quickly reheated in the wok or griddle make cook-to-order fast.)
4.   When cool, place in covered container and refrigerate, use as needed. Make batch daily.
