CHOW Associate Editor Corinne Trang teaches you how to use lemongrass in your cooking.
1. To use your lemongrass in your cooking, first strip away the dry outer leaves, and cut away the stumpy end and the dry leafy ends.
2. Chop each lemongrass stalk into pieces.
3. Next, you want to bruise the lemongrass to bring out the aroma. To bruise the lemongrass, bend the stem a bunch using your fingers to stimulate the juices
and make a few cuts in the stem.
4. Lemongrass is great for Thai curries, soups or stocks.
