6 tbsp oil
2 eggs, beaten with ½ tsp salt

Oil for deep frying
Heat 3 tbsp oil in frying pan and fry leek, ginger and ground pork. Add soy sauce, salt, MSG, and wine. Remove to a bowl.

Wash cabbage and chop it fine. Sprinkle with salt and squeeze out water.
Add cabbage to meat and egg mixture and mix thoroughly to make filling for meat cakes.
