Asian Eggplant
« on: September 26, 2009, 09:40:11 am »
I grew some this year and it's pretty much end-of-season here so I had to use them, ready or not.

Carolyn was kind enough to give me the link below in a previous thread.  That thread kinda went OT so I started this one.
http://www.culinate.com/books/collections/all_books/Mastering+the+Grill/Grilled+Asian+Eggplant+with+Hoisin+and+Vodka

I mostly followed the recipe but increased the vodka for the marinade from 2 to 5 TBS.  2 went into the marinade.   ;)

Here's an idea of the size.


Cut up per the recipe instructions.


I made the salsa and put the eggplant on the grill.  About 5 or 6 minutes per side.

The finished product, with the salsa.  Yes, they were good.

I'm with you on the meat and taters.  I just figured I'd try this and it was really pretty good.  Now, I'm out of vodka.  >:(  Time for the JD.  ;D
