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.<br/><br/>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.
This is really good eggplant. :) Usually Eggplant Adobo in the Philippines is made without the vinegar, so this was a change for us. I liked the vinegar in it but thought maybe next time I'll use 1/4 cup to tone it down just a little. I think DH will really like this so once he gets back from his trip I'll make it again. Thanks!
