Great recipe exactly as written but with lots of room for play to change it up. As is it is pretty mild, I added some garlic chili sauce to my serving and it was amazing - the rest of the family was happy with it as is. Some reviewers said it turned to mush - I think to avoid this you need to stick to the 4 minutes on the original cook and then stop simmering when there is still some water in the pan, maybe ~1/4 cup. It will add to the sauce and get thickened up just fine and the eggplant won't get mushy from cooking too long.
Added a teaspoon of minced garlic to the canola oil, so good! Will make again and try to add minced meat!
I used Hoisin sauce instead of oyster sauce. Used a pinch of splenda instead of sugar. Made sure eggplants were 90% cooked before I added the sauce. Used steel pan and worked very well Used fresh garlic and ginger and added marinated pork for a few minutes and then green onions to top off.
This is amazing. I made this with asparagus/broccoli and shrimp. Ty, for this recipe!
