    1. Pour enough vegetable oil in a preheated wok. Add the garlic and fry until fragrant. Add the pork slices and stir-fry for a couple of minutes.
    2. When the meat changes colour, add the vinegar, soy sauce and aubergines. Stir constantly for a few minutes.
    3. Add the sweet bean paste, a pinch of salt and the chillies; stir. Add a little bit of water and mix well.
    4. Cover the wok and cook until the aubergines turn soft. Sprinkle with sesame oil and transfer to a serving dish.


    Chinese aubergines look like purple courgettes. You can find these and sweet bean paste in Chinese/Oriental speciality shops.
