Eggplant in Spicy Garlic Sauce
Chili garlic sauce is a common ingredient in Chinese markets. It has the consistency of a thick puree and gives intense heat and flavor to any dish especially cooked with additional fresh garlic and ginger. This classic Szechwan dish is delicious served hot, at room temperature or chilled, hot and spicy with the sweetness from the pork. Chinese or Asian eggplant is slender and sweeter and less bitter than the traditional globe shaped Western variety.
