stretching out. Chop the green onion fine. Heat the oil in 2 quart
pot, then add the onion and the remaining ingredients. Saute,

more). Place planked muskrat in a large pot, add 4 cups of water and
simmer, uncovered, on medium heat for one hour. Add the fish sauce

thick--or carmelized. Be careful not to burn it. Remove the muskrat
from the pot carefully ! Seperate the muskrat from the plank, and
place meat to one side. Pour the sauce from the pot over the plank.
Totally discard the muskrat and eat the plank ! Bon Appetite. Serve
