Ingredients

250 g
2
garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp
finely grated fresh ginger
2
Japanese eggplants, diced into 1/2-in. segments, or 1/2 medium eggplant
265 g
tofu, cut into 1/2 inch dice, about 1/2 package
2 tbsp
2 tsp
1
green onion, thinly sliced
sliced fresh red chilies, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • HEAT a large frying pan over medium-high. Add oil, then pork, garlic and ginger. Using a fork, break up meat and cook until no pink remains, about 2 to 3 min.
  • ADD eggplant, tofu, oyster sauce, 1 tsp chili-garlic sauce and 1/2 cup water. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up and stir in any brown bits from pan bottom. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until eggplant is tender, about 8 to 10 min. Taste and add remaining chili-garlic sauce if you like it spicier. Stir in green onion. Serve with rice.
