Ingredients
  

  • 3 japanese eggplant sliced on a bias half moon
  • 1 serrano sliced thin
  • 1 fresno sliced thin
  • 2 green onions sliced on a bias
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ – 1 tablespoon korean red pepper flakes

Instructions
 

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat.
  • Add eggplants and saute for 1 minute. Next, add the peppers and green onion and saute 4-5 minutes until the eggplant is cooked.
  • Add the garlic, soy sauce, sugar, and red pepper flakes, until thoroughly mixed. Let continue to cook for 2-3 minutes and then remove from heat. Adjust seasoning as needed and serve.

Notes

Japanese eggplant is long and slender and loves to soak up sauce, making it the perfect variety for a stir fry. I highly recommend seeking this out at an Asian market.
