Slice flank steak into strips 1 1/2 inches long; combine with salt, cornstarch and oil.

Separate the cauliflower into flowerets. Boil water in a two or three quart saucepan; using a strainer or small colander, submerge frozen peas for 2-3 seconds. Rinse the peas with cold water and drain well.

Personal Notes:
This recipe is from "Madam Wong's Long-Life Chinese Cookbook". Once upon a time I helped my mom make a special Asian meal for a dinner party she had for some friends. The menu included this soup, followed by egg rolls, Beef with Cauliflower and Peas, Imperial Shrimp, steamed rice, and whipped banana yogurt with almond cookies. If you'd like to prepare a special dinner, all of these recipes are in My Mother's Table.
