Stir-fried Aubergines (Eggplants)









This is a favorite of our family.  The recipe came from my Dad who cooked this on weekends. After tasting the first spoon, you won´t stop eating this, it´s delish!!!
And if you´re vegan, you can skip the meat, you won´t notice the difference... It´s so yummy that I eat this even  without a side dish. 



So here, I´m sharing with you a recipe that is not only yummy in taste but will surely save you a lot of money. 
You can prepare this in advance and even freeze in portions... 



Stir-fried  Aubergines ( Eggplants)

Ingredients :

 1 Kg Aubergines ( around 3 huge eggplants)
200 grams pork filet 
1 medium onion, sliced
2 cloves crushed garlic
cooking oil ( olive oil preferrably)
3 eggs
2 tbsp soy sauce
salt & pepper



Preparations:

1. 
Wash, dry and slice the eggplants thinly.

2.
Cut the pork filet into small pieces and marinate this in 2 tablespoons soy sauce. let stand for 10 minutes. Fry in a hot pan with 1 tbsp oil for about 4 minutes. After frying, take out meat out of pan and set aside for later use.

3
 In a large frying pan or skillet, heat 3 tbsps. olive oil...add the crushed garlic and fry it  til the pieces become golden brown, add the onions... then the aubergine slices.

4.
  Stir fry the pieces until the aubergine becomes
 limpy and  soft.  Continue stirring until the
 whole slices crumbles... this may take to around 30 minutes or more of stirring.
Add  a spoon olive oil from time to time if the pieces are still dry.

 In the last minutes... the consistency of the
     aubergines should look similar to the above photo
 (all pieces crushed).

5. 
Season with salt, pepper,
 and 1 tbsp soy sauce. Stir properly so the seasoning
gets evenly distributed in the mixture.

6. 
Beat the  3 eggs, add these to the aubergine mixing properly so that the crushed pieces are well coated with the eggs.

 Stirring more often, cook for about 5 minutes more until egg becomes solid and cream in color . Adjust seasoning if necessary.

 This goes well with cooked rice.




Happy cooking!
