"I enjoy fresh ginger and cilantro, but felt the need to cut the quantities of fresh ginger (by 1/2) and cilantro (by 1/3).. and it was still too powerful for my taste... Next time I will proceed with more caution.

Over-all it was a nice receipe, however, and I appreciated the use of salt on the ginger, as a softening agent! Thanks for that tip."

Serve with rice. Good receipe I would modify the receipe a little and cut the meat into smaller pieces, and ensure that I only use the leaves of the cilantro. This was the first receipe that I have ever used needing so much Ginger (need a better way to prep), getting the ginger ready took a long time so be prepared.

In the list of ingredients is '1 c peeled, finely shredded'. My question: What is the ingredient?
