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.

But operators are finding simpler ways to achieve that feel.

Just eight days before Dec. 1, when operators would have to comply with the U.S. Department of Labor’s new overtime rules, a federal judge in Texas slapped an injunction on the regulation. The move indefinitely halted the rules that would have doubled the overtime threshold to $47,476, affecting nearly 4.2 million workers, according to the DOL. For some operators, the move was too little, too late. Now, they have to answer to employees who had been briefed on promised wage increases.
