Pretty tasty. Strong flavor. The eggplant soaks it up! Yummy with sticky rice.

I don't like eggplant. I REALLY REALLY enjoyed this recipe! The reviews that say "too sour" I could see that. If you don't like the flavor of vinegar, I would cut it a little bit - or use rice wine vinegar that is a little less sour. When I do this recipe again (which will probably be tomorrow because 4 Cups of eggplant was only about half the eggplant!) I am going to try a little hoisin too. I could see fresh ginger too as interesting variations.

The other note is that "2x2" is only two dimensions on a three dimensional object! I cut it about 1 inch thick and it kept its meatiness without being hard or tough.

I thought I would love this dish so I doubled it. The vinegar was so strong it made the entire dish inedible. We had to chuck the entire batch and I'm so disappointed. I wonder if doubling the recipe could have ruined it? It's not something I would make again. Sorry.

I honestly did not expect to like this, but had to find something fast to do with my eggplant. I'm so glad I did!!!! It IS an extremely strong flavor, but I found it to be addictive, and I'm on my way to make a much bigger batch now. Thanks!!!
