This week I’m gonna sharing the recipe of my favorite dish, Eggplant with Minced Pork.
Every time my mom cooked this dish, I would eat much more rice than I usually did because it is so good to be served with rice. So in my mind, this dish is the best match with rice.
Actually, it is reported that eating eggplant is good for kidney, so I think it is a healthy food in some ways.
So, let’s take a look at the recipe of Eggplant with Minced Pork.
1.What you need:
- Eggplant (medium size);
- Ground Pork ( should be 80% lean or 20% fat, around 150 g in the picture);
- Sauces: Toban Djan, Light Soy Sauce, Dark Soy Sauce;
- Others: Cooking Wine, Gingers, Salt, Garlic, Sugar.
- Cut the eggplant into small pieces like shown in the picture;
- Peel off three sections of the garlic and cut them into small grains like show in the picture;
- Cut two pieces of gingers for later use;
- Heat the pot on high heat, and add 80 ml oil(yes 80 ml) into the pot, heat the oil for 30 sec;
- Add all the eggplant pieces into the pot and fry them on medium-high heat till all the peel of the eggplant pieces get wrinkled;
- Then take the eggplant pieces out of the pot for later use and leave the oil in the pot;
- Now there must be a lot of oil in the pot, pour most of it and leave just about 10 ml oil in the pot and heat the pot on high heat for 15 sec;
- Add the garlic and ginger into the pot and stir fry on high heat for 30 sec;
- Add the ground pork and 2 spoons of cooking wine into the pot, stir fry quickly and separate them from each other on high heat till they all turn white;
- Add 3 spoons of light soy sauce, 1/2 spoon of dark soy sauce into the pot, still on high heat;
- Add all the eggplant pieces into the pot, and 1 spoon of Toban Djan into the pot, 1/4 spoon of sugar into it and stir fry quickly to mix them thoroughly on high heat for 1 min;
- Add 120 ml hot water into the pot and stew the eggplant and minced pork on medium heat with lid on for 10 min;
- Ta-dah! Your Eggplant with Minced Pork is ready. Bon appetit.
- Remember, eggplant can take in a lot of oil when it is raw, but when its peel get wrinkled, which means it’s well-fried, it will give out part of the oil it takes in, so we need a lot of oil to fry it or it cannot be well cooked;
- Served with rice! Served with rice! Served with rice! You cannot go wrong with this advice.
So, enjoy your meal. Any kinds of questions are welcome, see you in the comments.
As usual, I’ll see you next Friday.
