Eggplant With Pork Bits Adobo

In one of my previous posts, I have mentioned that my kids eat eggplant veggie. They only differ in how they prefer it to be cooked. Another challenge for the Mom, right? To be honest, I really do not have issues in making my girls eat vegetables. They got used to it. There is always a certain kind of veggie in the dinner table. When I saw this Eggplant Adobo dish on TV, it caught my attention.

During weekdays, I get to watch a morning show called “Magandang Buhay”. It is hosted by celebrity moms, Melai Cantiveros, Karla Estrada and Jolina Magdangal. In one of their most recent episodes, they tackled about how important it is to eat healthy and still prepare affordable dishes for the family. Their celebrity-comedian guest, Lassy, cooked Adobong Talong ala Lassy and I find it really mouth watering.

 

Right before fetching my younger daughter from school, I went to the market and bought few pieces of eggplant. Glad it is not that much expensive from the store I often buy veggies from. I was excited to prepare that same dish for dinner, which I did…with a twist!

Again, I had to twist the recipe I saw from Lassy. I sautéd the pork bits with the onion and garlic before adding the vinegar and soy sauce. I also added a tablespoon of Oyster sauce and sesame seeds for garnish. Because, why not?

The girls did not bother the fact they are eating eggplant cooked the way they have not tasted it before…they totally liked it! The husband is surprised with the dish too. It is something new to him. He got used to eating fried, boiled and grilled eggplant. These important people liking and acknowledging my effort to prepare dishes makes me wanna tell myself that I am good at cooking, haha! Kidding aside, I do love cooking for this fambam I call mine!
