    Yum. Would be great served with rice. I had no hoisin so used oyster. I cut the water in half. The time and reduction is key. I cooked my meat in the remains of the sauce. Nice.

    Very tasty -- loved the flavors. I used regular eggplant as I could not find my favorite Asian eggplants -- they seem to have a milder flavor. Next time, I might add some additional veggies and/or some tofu. I did add the chopped cilantro as mentioned by another reviewer. This made a really nice dinner tonight. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, December, 2013.

    Fantastic! Added some ground beef & tofu after cooking the eggplant to boost protein. Served with brown rice & green beans. Delicious! Oh, did add about 1/2 T garlic chile sauce to bump up the heat a bit. Mmmm! Another winner, Sharon123! Thanks (especially since I wasn't up to making moussaka & didn't want to baba it!
