REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
So many "Chinese" recipes are very Americanized but this one is pretty authentic. I recommend getting the Asian eggplant and not substituting a regular one as there is enough difference between them. Now the one ingredient I don't agree with in this dish is regular red wine vinegar. Maybe it is supposed to be Chinese red vinegar? I used rice vinegar instead.
