Strain out lemon grass and heat with sugar and vanilla bean/pod. Bring to scalding. Hand whisk the yolks in a stainless steel bowl. Temper the yolks by adding only a ladle of hot milk to the yolks. Mix well then add tempered yolks back to the sauce pan. Whisk constantly on medium heat for 2 minutes.

Strain and cool in an ice bath. When mixture is cooled add heavy cream. Follow manufacturer's instructions for your particular ice cream maker. Place in freezer before serving.
