You're gonna have to peel the woody outside, but the tender inside is good in soups or even stir-frys.

I had a dream the other night where I was at a grocery store that had everything, and somehow ended up buying the ingredients for, going home and making, fish amok (somehow dover sole was the fish I purchased).

Food dreams are as infrequent as sex dreams, but I remembered this one down to every detail, and now want to make some amok.

Thai & other southeast asian food.

save any off cuts or parts you wont immediately use in the freezer, then add them to a stock when you make one. personally i use lemongrass in pho-style broths or also ginger lemongrass meatballs. you can also look up how to get fresh lemongrass to root and plant from what you have
>>
>>7135094
also you can make tea, infuse it into oil for culinary and personal care use. its very versatile and second in my book after fresh ginger.

Why would you buy it if you don't know what to do with it, stupid fuck.
>>
>>7135447
no need to be mean. it's just not usually available to me so i thought it would be cool to get

This is interesting, is it hard to find lemongrass in the US? (Assuming that's where OP is from; I'm in the UK and the stuff's in all the supermarkets)

OP: the guys telling you to freeze it have a good idea, it won't loose its flavour and you can break it up a bit by hitting it with something while it's frozen (so that it infuses into things faster). As for recipes: Thai stuff.

lemongrass is so fucking nasty

Make a thai style marinade for a steak.

Take the lemongrass, briefly wash the outside (ill explain why in a bit). Take a heavy knife and cut off the bottom like 1/2 inch. Then split the thing in half down the middle. peel off the outer few layers cause they're incredibly tough. Then dice like a leek, about 1/4 inch sections.

Mix with garlic (like 2:1 lemongrass:garlic or w/e ratio you want) and some oil (I use olive oil, but you can use soy or w/e oil if you want to be 'authentic'. Use just enough oil to make a paste. You dont want an oil soup with stuff in it.

Pour into a ziplock bag with some sort of steak. Marinate like 4 hours or so. Squish it around every so often. When you take the steaks out of the marinade, brush off some of the chunks of stuff. Salt and pepper the steak.

Best cooking is on a grill (to your preferred doneness). Indoors, I would suggest using a broiler. Pan searing will totally blacken the steak due to the oil on it.

Lemongrass ice cream.

asian markets, esp Thai, it'll be in the frozen section but some places also sell lemongrass powder.
