Super easy and delicious weeknight meal. You can rarely get chinese food with eggplant in a restaurant so why not make it at home?

"This is my favorite recipe on Big Oven! It is delicious and easy to make, great for those nights when you have nothing planned and have no idea what to make for dinner. I have made several versions of it: without meat, without the eggplant, turkey instead of pork... And every time it turns out relish!"

This was an awesome recipe. Simple quick and tasty. I did not have tofu and I had pork loin which I cut into strips and the recipe worked great. Also we like sauce so I added some chicken broth and extra soy sauce to taste so we could spoon it over rice. Delicious!!
