Cha Traop Dot Recipe ★★★

Cambodian Stir-Fry Eggplant with Pork. One of my favorite Cambodian dishes. Amazing. Great with rice.

Recipe Source:
3 large Eggplants
2 Tablespoons to 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
5 Garlic Cloves (smashed and coarsely chopped)
3/4 lb. Ground Pork
3/4 lb. Shrimp (shelled, deveined, and chopped) (optional)
1/4 cup Fish Sauce
1-1/2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper (freshly ground)
3 Spring Onions (thinly sliced)

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Prick eggplants with a fork, then put on baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes (or until soft). Allow to cool slightly, then peel and discard the skins (optional). Mash the flesh with a fork until smooth. Set aside.
3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic until golden (about 10 seconds). Stir in the pork and shrimp, breaking up any clumps.
3. Add the fish sauce, sugar and ground pepper.
4. When well mixed, add the eggplant and continue stir-frying until warmed through (about 3 minutes).
5. Add the spring onions, stir well, and remove from heat and serve over rice.
