    slice into medallions. Mince garlic and black beans
    together. Heat oil in wok or skillet and add garlic
    mixture. Cook and stir a few seconds. Add pork and
    cook about 10 minutes, stirring to break up meat.
    Add hot water, soy sauce and MSG.

    Add lobster medallions and cook 2 minutes. Mix corn
    starch and sherry and stir into sauce. Beat egg with
    3 tablespoons water and blend into sauce. Cook over
    low heat 30 seconds, stirring constantly.

    Sauce should be creamy but not heavy.

    Spoon sauce into center of platter.

    Arrange medallions in sauce in decorative pattern.
    Garnish with cilantro and green onion curls.

    For each serving, place a few lobster medallions
    over rice in bowl. Spoon sauce over lobster.
