Sounds weird, tasted great


I would not normally try such an odd sounding recipe, but I'm glad that I did.

We bought these chump chops 2 days running from a small family butchers in Walmer, Kent [G M & M Johns]. The first time because they looked so good, and the second time because they tasted so good the first time. With no bone and very little fat, they are indeed a fabulous cut of meat.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
