Chapter 38 Hand-made Beef Balls That Are Full of Elasticity!
The dissatisfaction of the customers had reached its peak. They were only one spark away from erupting like a volcano!
Wei Heji stood at the side with a solemn expression, but in his heart, he was overjoyed!
He stared at Xu Yuan’s back in disdain. To think the kid still thought that he was the young master in university who would be pampered wherever he went so he could do whatever he wanted. He even dared to set rules for the customers! Did he really think that he was an international chef that’s reservation was hard to get? He simply thought too highly of himself!
“Hehe, fool!” Wei Heji was overjoyed.
He glanced at the angry customers. Their negative emotions were snowballing and growing. With so many of them, there would be less concern when everyone followed the herd. It would be best if they were to destroy the shop and make the matter as big as possible!
He was fantasizing about how he would appease the stricken Xu Yuan and the customers, thus gaining Xu Yuan’s trust…
However, at this moment, Wei Heji noticed that the expressions of the customers had changed.
The anger on their faces gradually subsided. Instead, they were starting with their eyes wide open and their mouths slightly agape as they looked in surprise at Xu Yuan who was swinging the iron rods and smashing the beef.
The beef bounced up under the heavy impact. The muscle texture of the meat shook like waves, causing the tip of one’s tongue to quiver as well. The hungry customers could not help but swallow their saliva as if they had already bitten into a firm piece of beef.
Wei Heji was also quite anxious, “Why aren’t they acting up now when they’re clearly hungry to the point that they’re even craving raw beef?”
However, things did not go as he had hoped. The customers’ attention was all attracted by Xu Yuan’s iron rods that he used to pound the meat. Their eyeballs followed the movements of the iron rods.
Each iron rod in Xu Yuan’s hands weighed three kilograms. Every time, he had to exert enough strength to separate the meat paste from the fascia.
Amidst the continuous knocking sounds, there was also a whooshing sound. The iron rods rubbed against the surface of the chopping board, a complete white fascia was thrown into the corner. In a short while, the fascias formed a small hill.
On the other hand, after sufficient air had been pounded into the beef, it turned from a strong bright red color to a reserved pink color. Even the smell of the beef was somewhat concealed within, and the entire piece of beef turned into fine meat paste, without a single fascia.
“Is he a robot? He has been pounding for almost an hour, yet he still has no intention of stopping,” A customer praised.
The customer at the same table shook his head, “I feel tired just looking at him. When will he stop? My eyes want to rest.”
“The meat paste looks so delicate. Is he going to make it into a dish later?”
“It should be quite delicious…”
Unknowingly, the customers’ attention was completely attracted by Xu Yuan, and they completely forgot about their urgency in having their meal.
An hour and a half later, the roasted pork in the kitchen was finally ready. Zhan Long called Wei Heji and asked him to serve a bowl of roasted pork rice to each customer.
The long-awaited Beside-yourself Rice was finally served. The restaurant was immediately filled with the rich aroma of roasted pork, and the customers who stayed standing at the door to watch the show could only be envious.
Two of them looked at the rules on the board at the entrance and couldn’t help but enter the restaurant and sit down. They asked for a bowl of rice and ate it with the others.
Before Xu Yuan had stopped pounding the beef, the customers swallowed their first mouthful of roasted pork along with the rhythmic pounding. Their eyes were immediately full of tears as their gaze still landed on Xu Yuan. “It’s so delicious! Oh my God! It’s so delicious! Why hasn’t he stopped?”

“The taste is definitely worthy of 388. It’s not a waste of my time!”
“Wow! His biceps are so strong. To think he’s been pounding for more than an hour, and his strength hasn’t even gotten weaker!”
Everyone was curious about the dish that was so time-consuming and laborious. The customers who wanted answers didn’t even leave after eating. Instead, they either propped up their hands or set up their phones, waiting for the moment when Xu Yuan stopped.
Finally, two hours later, Xu Yuan was finally showing signs of stopping.
“Uncle Wei, can you come over and help me?” Xu Yuan asked.
Wei Heji walked to his side confusedly. Suddenly, the two smooth rods were stuffed into his hands. He instantly felt the weight and the iron rods hit the chopping board with a clang.
Xu Yuan said expressionlessly, “I’m going to the kitchen. Help me continue to pound the beef. You must not stop!”
Wei Heji could feel his muscles ache before he even started. He squeezed out a smile and said, “Young master, I’m the manager, and I don’t have the physical strength like you. Why don’t you let Master Zhan take over instead?”
“It doesn’t matter if you pound it a little slower. You just can’t stop. If the dish fails, it’ll be your fault!” After saying that, without care if Wei Heji could do it or not. he simply trotted into the kitchen.
Wei Heji had no choice but to raise the iron rods and continue pounding the meat paste with difficulty. After only doing so for ten minutes, he was already out of breath. His shirt was soaked in sweat and his fringe was stuck to his forehead, making him look extremely miserable.
Xu Yuan had said the instructions very loudly just now, so under the watchful eyes of so many, Wei Heji didn’t dare to slack off. He could only continue pounding the meat paste obediently.
After a while, Xu Yuan came out of the kitchen with a plate of meat jellies shaped like sugar cubes in his hands.
He took the iron rods from Wei Heji, who was almost so exhausted he could collapse. Without waiting for the latter to take a breath, he ordered, “Help me bring out the basin of hot water in the kitchen. Hurry up, I’m going to start making the meatballs.”
Wei Heji glanced at Zhan Long, who was standing at the side all calm and dignified, and secretly glared at him. Then he ran into the kitchen and moved the basin of hot water to Xu Yuan’s side.
At this moment, the anticipation was over the roof. The customers stretched their necks, wanting to see how Xu Yuan was going to make meatballs out of the meat paste.
Following this, Xu Yuan reached out and grabbed a handful of the meat paste. Having been pounded till it was very sticky, the meat paste firmly stuck to his palm, not falling off even if he put his hand upside-down.
He then embedded a cube of the pure white meat jelly into the meat paste before squeezing the meat paste gently with his ring finger. With that, a round meatball emerged from between his thumb and index finger, which he used a spoon to scoop up and threw into the steaming water. The meatball could be seen to be floating on the surface of the water.
Xu Yuan’s actions in making the meatballs were very fast. His two hands worked together beautifully, and in a few minutes, a large basin of meatballs was produced.
As a chef, Zhan Long naturally knew what to do next. He found a portable gas stove and placed a small pot filled with clear water on it. After the water boiled, he put the beef meatballs in. When the water boiled again, he scooped the meatballs up, putting four in a bowl that he placed next to Xu Yuan. Xu Yuan pointed with his chin and said, “Taste it.”

Zhan Long scooped a meatball and blew on it. When he bit into half of it, the rich gravy within instantly flew half a meter away, giving everyone a fright.
The boiling gravy dripped down from the corner of Zhan Long’s mouth. It was hot but delicious, making it so that he didn’t dare to lick it even though he wanted to. To think the head chef of the Royal Court Banquet Restaurant would have such an embarrassing moment as well.
However, no one made fun of him. On the contrary, they were very envious! They watched as he ate the remaining half of the meatball.
Seeing that Zhan Long was enjoying it so much, Wei Heji eagerly got himself a spoon, scooped a meatball up, blew on it, and carefully bit into it.
Unexpectedly, the beef meatball was too slippery. It slipped out of his mouth and fell onto the ground. With great elasticity like a ping-pong ball, it bounced up to the height of a knee and rolled under a customer’s table!
