  • Yield: Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound eggplant
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 8 ounces ground pork
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice or white wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Asian red chili paste
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 8 ounces extra-firm tofu, drained and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

Preparation

1. Rinse eggplant and cut crosswise into 1-inch thick rounds. Cut rounds into 1-inch-wide strips.

2. Pour vegetable and sesame oils into a 12-inch nonstick frying pan or a 14-inch wok over medium-high heat. When hot, add eggplant and stir frequently until soft when pierced and lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Transfer eggplant to paper towels to drain.

4. In a bowl, mix soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, chili paste, cornstarch, and 1/4 cup water. Pour into pan and stir until mixture is simmering and thickened, about 1 minute.

5. Gently stir in tofu, eggplant, and green onions until heated through.
