EGGPLANT STIR FRY WITH GROUND PORK

It’s harvest time again and I have got a few eggplants I could cook for the whole day. Based on the wheel of fortune in my mind, the eggplant will be cooked as a stir fry today. I just had some binagoongan lately so I excluded that from the choices. Then, I was left with a simple stir fry, but make it meatier. It’s super sakto that I still have an abundance of ground pork in the fridge.

I really love this dish as it is, since it made me feel less guilty of eating meat, as I am eating them with some veggies. You can also use this recipe if you want to teach your kids on eating veggies, particularly the string beans. The meatiness of the ground pork will mask any negative taste from the veggie so the kid will only taste the meat, without thinking that they are also eating veggies at the same time.

HOW TO MAKE EGGPLANT STIR FRY WITH GROUND PORK

Making some eggplant stir fry with ground pork is literally just stir frying the ingredients until they become one truly lovely dish.

Before you start cooking, prepare all the ingredients. The main veggie for this dish is the string beans, but feel free to add any veggie you like. After chopping the eggplants, soak them in water to prevent darkening.

Start the cooking process with cooking the eggplants until half cooked. Eggplants are very very soft and soggy when cooked, so just let them be half cooked for now.

Sauteing the ground pork. No need to add oil in this since we will be using the natural oil rendered from the pork. You will be surprised on how much oils are in there! But at least, the oil we will use to saute the aromatics is already meaty. The ground pork may take time to cook so don’t just settle when they become brown. Always to a taste test to know if they are cooked enough.

Saute the aromatics using the rendered oil, and then saute them altogether. You might be needing to add some water to boost the cooking of the ground pork.

The next thing is adding the veggies one by one. Add the string beans since they are fibrous veggies, which means that they need extra time to cook and soften. Add the other veggies and the half cooked eggplant prepared earlier. Simply toss them to mix them better.

I really love my stir fry eggplant with ground pork with a big bowl of hot steaming rice. Yum!
