- How to Minced Lemongrass: Trim lemongrass by cutting off the spiky top and enough of the bottom so that you no longer see a woody core. Peel off a few of the outer layers until you’re left with just the tender heart of the stalk.
- For infusions, bruise the stalk by smashing it under the side of a cleaver or chef’s knife. For easy removal from a pot of hot liquid, tie the whole stalk into a-knot, or cut it into smaller lengths for straining out.
- To mince lemongrass, slice the stalk thinly crosswise and then chop through the-slices until they’re minced.
- In a saucepan over high heat, heat 1 cup of cooking oil. Add the minced garlic and shallots and sauté until aromatic. Following that, add the minced lemongrass and season with 2 tablespoons of salt to taste.
- Stir-fry the lemongrass mixture until aromatic and any excess oil has been drained. Allow it to cool completely before storing it in jars (boxes) for use in cooking.
- Note: Add chili to the stir-fry if you prefer it spicy. You can preserve this lemongrass satay in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks in an airtight jar!
