Easy Stir fry Eggplants with Ground Pork

The Easy Stir fry Eggplants with Ground Pork is a popular and straightforward Cambodian dish that combines tender eggplant with flavorful ground pork, creating a harmonious blend of taste and texture. This dish is characterized by its quick and simple preparation, making it a favored choice in Cambodian kitchens.

To start, a large purple eggplant is baked at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 30 minutes until it becomes soft and easy to handle. This initial step is crucial in removing excess moisture from the eggplant, which aids in the stir-frying process. Cooking the eggplant raw is an option, but it may take longer due to its natural moisture content.

In a hot frying pan, two tablespoons of either olive or canola oil are heated on high heat. Minced garlic is then added and stir-fried until it turns a golden brown, infusing the dish with a rich, aromatic flavor. Next, ground pork is introduced and cooked until it is no longer pink, ensuring it is fully cooked through.

Chopped eggplant is then added to the pan along with soy sauce, fish sauce, Yoshida sauce, sugar, and black pepper. These ingredients are mixed thoroughly, allowing the flavors to meld together. The stir-frying process continues for about two minutes until the pork is fully cooked, at which point the heat is turned off. To finish, chopped green onions and cilantro are sprinkled on top, providing a burst of freshness and color to the dish. This flavorful stir fry can be served hot alongside cooked rice, offering a satisfying and delicious meal option.
