root, 2 cups of the scallions or leeks and 2 cups of the Chinese Parsley.
Refresh the sauce with the remaining scallions or leeks and parsley as

guests bowls. (NOTE: Do Not taste the sauce after the raw meat has been
dipped in it! Just a precaution.)

TO ASSEMBLE:

To assemble the barbecue, place the cooking appliance in the center of the
table, heating and greasing the cooking surface with the salad or peanut
oil. (At intervals, scrape off the charred food bits with a spatula and
reoil the cooking surface and resume cooking). Guests put the meat and
vegetables on the plates and then place small portions on the cooking
surface and spoon some of the sauce over the grilling food, flipping the
food over with chopsticks after about 1 minute on the grill. Cook to the
desired doneness of each guest.
