RT Test Recipe

This is my take on Chinese eggplants with spicy garlic sauce, a dish I order time to time from my local delivery spot. Ssamjang was kind of perfect for this as it brings the perfect amount of spicy, salty and savory flavor. All I added in addition were some garlic and sesame oil. Eggplant stir fry, when paired with meat, normally comes with pork but I decided to make it with chicken which is my favorite choice for protein. I imagine you can easily make this with tofu and turn it vegetarian. I had it as-is but also love it topped on udon noodles or on rice.
