An easy recipe that is great for a dinner party. I found it in a magazine (Women's Day? Family Circle?) while sitting in the waiting area of the hospital emergency room. My family now refers to it as "Emergency Room Roast." I served it with sweet potato casserole and creamed spinach. (BTW, my dad was in the ER but he's just fine now, thank you!)
This is so easy and fun to make. Cook time is an estimate, depending on size of eggplant and heat of grill. Instead of grilling, the eggplant could also be prepared in a 350-degree oven. The recipe is from my best friend Cookie and recipes are the least of many wonderful things she shares with me.
I found this recipe in Bon Appetit a few years ago. Prep time does not include 4 hours to let cherry cola go flat. Recipe calls for grilling at the end, but I think you could finish off the whole recipe in the oven. The sauce is delicious! Seems like alot to do, but well worth it!
