Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Eggplant

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 Japanese eggplants, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 onions, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 tablespoons oyster sauce
15 g Chili Garlic Sauce
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 ground black pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Recipe Directions for Spicy Eggplant

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat until almost smoking. Cook and stir the eggplant cubes until they begin to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the eggplant with a slotted spoon, and set aside.

  2. 2. Heat 2 more tablespoons of oil in the skillet over medium-high heat, and cook and stir the onions just until they begin to soften, about 30 seconds. Stir in the garlic, and cook and stir an additional 30 seconds. Mix in the soy sauce, water, oyster sauce, chili garlic sauce, sugar, and black pepper, and stir to form a smooth sauce. Return the eggplant to the skillet, lower the heat, and allow the vegetables and sauce to simmer until the eggplant is tender and almost all the liquid has been absorbed, about 5 minutes. Drizzle sesame oil over the dish, and give one final brief stir to combine.
