Stir Fry Pork Mince with Brinjal

Did I mention that my husband do not like eggplant or brinjal? Yes, my mother in law was surprised too as it seems that we share a common fondness for this vegetable (in addition to my hubby!) and she tried on many occasions to teach him to appreciate it when he was growing up.

I sneaked this into one of our meals one day and he said he didn't mind it as much as what he thought. Well, I grew to appreciate coconut so the least he could do is to enjoy brinjal right? Isn't it what we call compromise?

It's a simple classic dish I suppose. Nothing too fancy, but it's a quick and budget friendly meal. He had it with his rice. I had some with a side of vegetables.

Stir Fry Pork Mince with Brinjal (serves 4)
500 grams pork mince
2 red chill chopped
1 red onion chopped
1 tablespoon of garlic
1 tablespoon of fish sauce
handful of pine nuts
3 baby brinjal

Heat oil in pan. Saute garlic, chill and onion. Brown mince, adding sauce and seasoning. Add brinjal and let it soak up the flavours. Taste and season. Toss through pine nuts.

I am also not a fan of eggplant! I only have it occasionally and I like it steamed drizzled with soy sauce, sesame oil with minced ginger.

Yes, compromise is KEY! Plus, how could you dislike eggplant?!?!? This looks great.
