Juicy Eggplant Gravy

ochikeron's picture
This is very simple but my favorite dish that my mom cooks ;) It's a sweet soy sauce flavor (kind of teriyaki flavor) that goes perfect with white rice. Perfect for your bento okazu (side dish), too!!!
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Chop eggplant into chunks and soak them in water to remove the oxalic acid and drain.

MAKING
2. Heat sesame oil in a pan and stir-fry eggplant. Add mirin, sugar and hon-dashi, and cook for 3 minutes.
3. Season with soy sauce (adjust to suit your taste if needed) and simmer until the liquid is almost gone and tender. Mix in ground white sesame seeds

SERVING
4.Serve hot
