涼伴手撕茄子肉片 Shredded Eggplant with Pork

20 Jun

Try this refreshing and appetizing summer cold dish!  Eggplant shredded in matchstick-style and tossed with a garlicky soy sauce vinaigrette.

Raw eggplant absorbs oil like a sponge, so it is not preferable to cook it directly with oil as otherwise you will oil-soaked eggplant, which isn’t very appetizing.  Steaming is one of the best way to cook eggplant. It allows better absorption of flavorings and quicker cooking.

Serve as an appetizer or side dish with BBQ meat or simply as a main dish with rice or noodles.

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium Chinese eggplant
  • 1/2 lb pork, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
Sauce:
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dark soy sauce 老抽
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons light soy sauce 生抽
  • 1 tablespoon Zhenjiang vinegar 鎮江醋
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil or chili oil
Directions:
  1. Marinate pork using 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon oyster sauce, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and 1 teaspoon corn starch for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in wok over medium-high heat.  Add pork, cook for 5 minutes, or until cooked through.  Set aside and cool.
  3. Cut the eggplant in half and steam over high heat until softened (about 5 minutes). Remove from the heat and cool.
  4. In a bowl, combine the sauce ingredients.
  5. Use hands to tear eggplant into strips.  Top with pork and cilantro.  Then pour the sauce over to serve.
