  1. Wow, I have to try this, really when you think of it, why do we saute the onions and ginger/garlic separately anyway? I’ll bet this would be great in a slow cooker too, I might just dump all the ingredients mentioned and let it cook and simmer all day long – I can just imagine the aroma in the kitchen. Thanks for that!
