This is an excellent recipe. I was going to mark you down one star for not indicating how much ginger to use - 1 small gingerroot does not really define it- however I enjoyed the recipe so much I didn't have the heart to mark it down - I used 2 tsps of ginger and it could take a little more.. The other difference I used 2 cloves garlic. Served over rice with steamed baby carrotts. Liver lovers unit! Thanks Gerry for an enjoyable meal
