Sauteed Chinese Eggplants with Shredder Pork in Spicy Tauchu( Fermented Bean Paste) Sauce

Have you every try sauteed Chinese eggplants with shredder pork in spicy tauchu (fermented bean paste ) sauce ? If not ,you have to try this recipe,it's really good! I finished this whole dish myself with white rice!! So delicious! You must wonder what is tauchu,right? There are few different types of fermented bean paste selling at Asian market. The one I bought is in clear bottle which the bean paste is finely ground . You can use any brand out there .Beside tauchu, you have to use Chinese eggplants/brinjal for this dish.Chinese eggplants are commonly shaped like a narrower, slightly pendulous cucumber, and sometimes were called Japanese eggplants in North America. Ingredients:

1 lb brinjal/Chinese eggplants ( cut 3 inch)
1/2 lb tenderloin pork (shredder)
2 tbsp fermented bean paste (tauchu)
2 tbsp sambal olek ( chili sauce)
3 cloves fresh garlic ( minced)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 +2 tbsp cooking oil
1 stalk scallion ( cut 2 inch )
2 red long pepper (sliced)

1: Wash and cut brinjal,drizzle with 2 tbsp cooking oil in a large plate ,cook in microwave for 2 minutes.
2: Prepare wok or skillet at high heat ,add in 2 tbsp oil and chopped garlic,then add in fermented bean paste and shredder pork,fry for 1 minutes or until the shredder pork curl. Add in half cooked brinjal/eggplants ,salt and sugar. Combine all ingredients, saute for another 2 minutes or until the color of eggplants change color to deep dark purple or soft ,then it cooked .
3: Check the seasoning,sprinkle with cut red long pepper and scallion.Dish out and serve warm with rice.

If you want a healthier version,steamed or blanched cut eggplants instead of microwave with oil. But I found this dish taste better when microwave with oil and cook faster than others method.

this looks easy to make. Another great idea for dinner but need to go shopping for brinjals first!
