Tips

Expert Tips

  • To peel or not to peel gingerroot-that is the question. The great thing is, you can do either! Plus, if you would rather not spend the extra couple of minutes finely chopping the gingerroot, use a grater instead. Grate against the fibrous strings on the narrow ends of the gingerroot instead of the wider flat side. You can also see the fibers when you slice off a piece of gingerroot.
  • This gingery beef mixture makes a fabulous sandwich, and it also makes a fabulous dinner when served with hot cooked basmati or jasmine rice and chutney. Finish the dinner with a cup of steaming tea and a bowl of coconut pudding.
