Coat the veal with the cornstarch. Shake off excess.
Heat wok over high heat. Add the peanut oil and heat to 350°F. Oil-blanch the cubes of veal by placing them in a Chinese strainer and lowering them into the hot oil for 45 seconds to 1 minute, or until the cubes turn light brown. Turn off heat. Remove from wok and place strainer over a bowl so oil drains. Res
