How to Cook Easy Stir-Fried Pork and Eggplants with Ponzu

        Last week, I cooked this stir-fried pork and eggplants because Japanese eggplants were on sale at Korean market. :) I used Ponzu, a Japanese citrus-based soy sauce, for its seasoning. It had delicious salty and sour tastes. My husband and I loved this dish! :) When I was child, I actually didn't like ponzu very much because I didn't really like sour foods, but as I grow older, I like sour taste more. Now, I always have ponzu in my refrigerator. :)  If you have ever lived in Japan, you know that the most famous ponzu in Japan is Mitsukan Ajipon (ミツカン 味ぽん). It's also perfect sauce for nabe dish and gyoza.

     Anyway, I'm going to share with you how to cook stir-fried pork and eggplants today.

Ingredients (for 4 Servings)
1 clove of garlic
1/2 lb of sliced pork
2 eggplants (sliced)
4 to 8 Tablespoons of ponzu
1/2 cup of green onions (chopped)

1. Heat oil in a pan over high heat.

2. Stir-fry garlic and pork.

3. Add eggplants and stir them. Cover the lid and cook until eggplants are cooked.

4. Add ponzu and stir them.

5. Serve it on the plate, and garnish with green onion.

6. Enjoy! :)
