How to Prep Lemongrass
I love cooking with lemongrass. It’s a staple of many Asian cuisines that lends a unique citrusy aroma and flavor to soups, curries, marinades, stir-fries, dumplings and dipping sauces, even cocktails. Peel away the dried, tough outer layers, trim the top of the long stalk, pound the root end with a mallet or rolling pin to easily remove the fibrous root and release its oils, then simply slice or mince for your favorite dishes.
