Here's a stir-fry recipe that includes lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves: “Meat” Fried Rice - Four Ways | Jaden's Steamy Kitchen.

Scroll down to Vienna Sausage Fried Rice with Kaffir and Lemongrass.

More recipe sites (I'm bookmarking these for myself, too):

galangal is related to ginger (kinda a cousin) but has a slightly stronger more bitter flavor. As it is not easy to come by in the States in fresh form, many of Asian cookbooks automatically sub in minced ginger instead. So look for an Indian or Thai recipe with gingerand sub in the galangal. Should be great.

I think I will try replacing ginger with the galangal in a cookie recipe and also try it in pumpkin pie. Maybe I will have time to whip something up this weekend.

Jasmine Rice with Veggies

Ingredients
2 cups cooked rice
2 cups steamed broccoli and other veggies, in small pieces
4 pieces galangal; peeled
½ tsp salt
grated zest and juice of 1 lime
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp rice vinegar
2 tsp chopped coriander
salt and freshly ground black pepper


Place the rice in a pan, cover the rice with water and bring to the boil.
Add 3 pieces of roughly chopped galangal and the salt to the rice.
Cook the rice according to the package instructions.
Remove the galangal, place the rice into a clean bowl and add the remaining ingredients and add seasoning to taste.
Grate the remaining pieces of galangal and squeeze the juice over the rice.

Really good with fish! The rice is pretty flavorful, so it does best as a side
dish, not a base.

Oh, look for it frozen in Asian markets. It keeps quite well frozen. :)

Well, I'd guess the dried is not nearly as good as the fresh, just like fresh ginger and dried ginger have nothing in common.

Man, these all sound good! Thanks! I'm tempted to open an Asian market in this valley so I can eat like this more often!
