    Sharon123's Note:

    Each piece of eggplant is dark and shiny and plump and soft, with wonderful complex flavors coming through-hot, sour, salty, and sweet! Adapted from Friedas.

    Stir-fry ingredients


    1. 1
      Mix the seasonings in a bowl until the sugar is dissolved and set aside.
    2. 2
      Rinse and dry the eggplant and cut off stems; don't peel. Quarter them lengthwise and cut each quarter into 2-inch wedges. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch with the water and sesame oil. Set aside.
    4. 4
      Heat a large, heavy skillet(or wok) over high heat for 30 seconds. Add the olive oil with the chili-pepper oil(or red pepper flakes), swirl, and heat for 30 seconds. Throw in the garlic, ginger, and scallions and stir rapidly for 15 seconds.
    5. 5
      Add the eggplant wedges and stir with a spatula in flipping and gentle pressing motions for 2-5 minutes to expose them to the oil.
    6. 6
      Turn heat down to medium high and continue to turn and press lightly for 4-7 more minutes, until the wedges are slightly browned and flattened. Don't press them hard, or they might break and become messy.
    7. 7
      Turn the heat back up to high. Give the seasonings a stir and pour over the eggplant. Stir in scooping and lifting motions for about 30 seconds; give the cornstarch mixture a stir and add to the sauce. Cook to desired doneness.
    8. 8
      Toss quickly, then place into a hot serving dish. Enjoy!
    9. 9
      Makes 3 to 4 servings.

      This was an unexpected hit! I didn't have sherry, so I subbed apple juice. Made for ZWT 9

      I never ate eggplant before. I bought some Thai eggplant at the farmers market and decided to give this recipe a try. The eggplant was nice and tender, the sauce was tasty but I just wasn't thrill about eggplant. I'm not going to rate this recipe because it just wasn't for me but I think other people would enjoy the taste of this nice sauce.

      Oh, this was fabulous! I loved how the eggplant didn't get mushy, but was just the right tenderness. The flavors were incredible. I made this just as written and I garnished with sesame seeds and extra scallions. Thanx for sharing this. Yum!
