Although I dont cook a lot with fermented ingredients, this pork dish looks delicious and easy to make.
I love eggplant dishes but never had it with pork, and I am loving the fermented black beans in it…so tasty. Thanks for the recipe Raymond! Have a great week
Anything that calls for Gochujang gets my vote. There is a Vietnamese pork and eggplant dish that I always order, but it isn’t spicy. I think I will love your version much better.
