Additional Tips

Additional Tips

May use fresh lemongrass instead of lemongrass paste – simply dice and put it in cheesecloth. Remove before blending.
Add heat with cayenne pepper, chipotle, or a diced jalapeño.

Great with chicken, pork loin and tenderloin, dry cooking cuts of beef, seafood and fish. Also wonderful to use with vegetables served over rice.
