Today’s Recipe: Hoisin Eggplant

Eggplant is one of the vegetables that my family and I love. It’s one of our staple veggie, you can simply fry it, grill it or even boil and fry with egg (tortang talong). Then I suddenly remembered I love the Japanese eggplant dish and thought about experimenting and trying it out, it may not be exactly that yummy eggplant dish we would normally order at a Japanese restaurant (I don’t know exactly what its called) so I opted to try the simplest version of it with the use of hoisin sauce.

Here’s Wachunid:

2-3 medium sized eggplant. sliced horizontally and cut into halves, 1/4 kilo ground pork, 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced.

3-5 tbsp. Hoisin sauce, 2tbsp. Sesame oil, 2 tbsp. Chinese cooking wine, 1 tbsp. Teriyaki sauce (optional), salt & pepper to taste.

Step 1: Heat pot and pour in Sesame oil, sauté garlic & ground pork.

Step 2: Add the Hoisin, Teriyaki sauce and Chinese wine.

Step 3: Add the eggplant and add 1/4 cup of water. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Season with salt & pepper to taste.

Because I love it saucy, I added a few more teaspoon of Hoisin and water.

Viola!

A unique yet simple dish that’s easy to prepare and cook.

    Thanks for the link up, will try to do the same. As for the food, its a bit sweet given it’s hoisin but you can try to make it a little saltier by adding soy sauce or salt to even off the sweetness.
