 For our newbies, the KFB foodie talk column - handled by Dobby of Dobbysignature - is basically for ladies and 'guys' that are interested in learning how to cook better ;).
Today she discusses how to make Shredded ginger beef.

Cooking beef anytime soon? Here's a fun pasa pasa way to make it really appetizing. It's so tasty and tender, you might never want to cook beef any other way again. I must confess, the first time i tried this was at one of these hip naija restaurants and i fell in love with it immediately. Since then, i've been making it and serving it with potato, rice of different variants i.e jollof, fried, coconut, Yam and a host of others. What makes this stand out is the overpowering flavor of the ginger which you can't help but notice. So what's in this, simply beef, a few seasonings, carrot, cucumber and that's just about it. If you've got tomato, toss that in the mix too and lunch is served.
