Ginger Beef

Ginger beef is a Canadian Chinese dish made from beef, ginger, and a distinctive sweet sauce.

The ingredients of ginger beef can depend on where it is featured, but the Western Canadian version generally consists of deep fried strips of beef coated in a dark sweet sauce that is reminiscent of other Asian sauces based on vinegar and sugar. It also contains flavors of ginger, garlic, and hot peppers, and is commonly served with a small amount of juliennedcarrots and onions in the sauce.[1] Ginger beef is derived from the original Geung Ngao Yuk (Chinese: 薑牛肉) dish.

As with many dishes, the invention of ginger beef is claimed by several restaurants and chefs. However, the most widely accepted origin attributes the dish’s development during the mid-1970s by chef George Wong at the Silver Inn in Calgary, Alberta.[2][3][4][5] The dish is now a very important part of culture in Calgary and that part of Canada.[4][5][6] A radio segment featuring ginger beef was aired on CBC Radio One programme The Main Ingredient.[7]

I’ve been Summoned…have You? – vvp10

I picked up the mail like any other day and there’s a letter from the Alberta government…opening it initially thinking it was for a vehicle fine or something…to my surprise it was a Jury Duty Summons.

A “jury summons” is a court order. It means you have to attend at the time and place stated so that a jury can be selected, unless you have been excused. Although you may not be chosen as a juror, you do have to show up. Serving on a jury in our society is both a privilege and a legal duty.

Jury Summons Important Notice

In Alberta the Jury Duty Rules are:

Courtroom Etiquette:

https://www.alberta.ca/courtoom-etiquette.aspx

Back of the Summons

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to be on a jury, watching all of the crime shows and listening to the different cases on the news I wanted to be part of this experience. I hear lots of people do not want to be on jury duty nor are they honoured or thrilled to get this letter…but I am! I think it’s our civic duty to be part of this process. Our taxes and our Right to vote and have an impact. This kind of stuff makes me tic and want to be part of the society we live in. have an impact.

The jurors are charged with the responsibility of deciding whether, on the facts of the case, a person is guilty or not guilty of the offence for which he or she has been charged. The jury must reach its verdict by considering only the evidence introduced in court and the directions of the judge.

There’s a part of me that has a bit of a concern if I was to get a case like OJ Simpson or something like this that could financially impact my life long term and my family unit. What about a case of child abuse or animal cruelty – how would I react…I’m prepared in some ways understanding this would be a serious offence and the people on trial may not be understood or understandable….wish me luck. Tell me your story and I’ll add it to a future episode.  Send me an email and let me know what it was like or leave me a comment through your podcast app or in my show feed.

Over 20 years ago my dad was on a jury, at the time I didn’t know although I was in school and living with him at my childhood home, he kept this a complete secret from me. He got up and went to “work” every day like normal, I had no idea until it was over. He had a very hard case to decide on the the victim in his case was a teenage girl and her name was Valerie.. couldn’t be closer to home for him. It was a tough case and has stayed with him for a number of years. It was about a bunch of teenagers driving around in a car drinking and having a good time, until they weren’t. There was a car accident, the one girl (Valerie) was struck by a tape deck and she bled to death – the biggest part of the story from my dad’s perspective was the driver was concerned about the stolen tape deck and not about this girl bleeding to death – such a bad decision for him. The poor girl died due to his lack of concern – again from my dad’s perspective.

Listen here:

Unfortunately even before I got this episode recorded my chance at jury duty was cancelled. I was working on a job site the day before when I had to call in to ensure that this was still on and scheduled so I called the number for verification and to my dismay – it was cancelled…how disappointed was i? Very….If you have a Juicy jury duty story or want to share your experience with me I’d love to hear from you…
