Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 1-2 Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

Aubergine (eggplant) 1
Minced pork 100g
Leek 1
Chinese peppercorn (Hua Jiao) 1 tbsp
Vegetable oil 1 tbsp
Chinese chilli bean sauce (Tobanjan) 1.5 tbsp
Chinese sweet bean sauce (Tenmenjan) 1 tbsp
Black pepper a pinch
Soy sauce 1 tbsp
Sake (white wine) 1 tbsp
Chicken stock 5 tbsp
Spring onions (chopped) as required
Chilli oil optional

Method

1
After roasting the black pepper in a frying pan for about 1 minute, crush it with a rolling pin to release its scent. Slash the skin of the eggplant in a grid pattern to make it easier to absorb a full flavour.
2
Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a frying pan, add the eggplant in bite-size pieces with the skin side down, and cook on high heat for about 3 minutes. Turn the eggplant pieces over and bake for another 2 minutes before removing them.
3
Add another tablespoon of oil in the same frying pan, add the minced pork and cook on medium heat. Finely chop the minced meat with the spoon as it cooks.
4
When it becomes golden brown and the fat becomes transparent, add the chopped leeks and fry. When the leeks have softened, add all the seasonings apart from the chicken stock.
5
Fry for a while, then add the chicken stock. Add the eggplant pieces from Step 2 and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
6
Turn off the heat, add water-soluble corn starch to thicken the sauce. Turn the heat back on until the sauce thickens, then serve on a plate.
7
After serving on a plate, sprinkle with finely chopped spring onions and it's done. If you like spicy food, top with some chilli oil.
