COOK'S TIPS To shred pork, freeze until just firm enough for easy cutting. Cut pork across the grain into 3mm thick slices, then cut with the grain into thin shreds. Finely chop fresh ginger quickly by pressing it through a garlic press; scrape out any remaining ginger with the tip of a sharp knife. Add to recipe as directed
