Eggplant Sriracha Stir-Fry

Sriracha sauceAfter today, you might want to add Eggplant Sriracha Stir-Fry to your collection of eggplant recipes. My wife just returned home from a business trip to West Palm Beach, Florida so today she wants to be the cook. Secretly I think she is feeling guilty for those late nites when after the meetings, her and her friends visited “little Cuba” in Miami and partied until the wee hours of the morning. I have a couple of nice eggplant in the refrigerator and was planning on making eggplant parmesan but if she wants to cook, that’s o.k. with me. As for the Srirach hot sauce, it has always been a favorite of our boys. They add it to pizza and hamburgers among other things. I use it in soups if I have a cold. It is one of the few hot sauces that I purchase¬† as I prefer to make my own, but this one is a classic.

Eggplant Sriracha Stir-Fry

1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons Sriracha hot chili sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce

You can spot Srirahca but the little green cap

1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 medium eggplants, peeled and cut into bite size cubes
1 teaspoon minced garlic
3 tablespoons chopped green onion

Combine the water and cornstarch in a bowl, stirring until cornstarch dissolves.  Add to the mixture the Sriracha, soy sauce, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes; whisk together until blended well.
Put wok over medium-high heat, add oil, and when the oil sizzles, add the eggplant and cook, stirring, for 4 or 5 minutes or until just tender.
Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute, stirring often.
Now add the sauce mixture and stir until well combined, then stir in the green onions and cook for another minute as it thickens.
Remove and serve over hot cooked brown rice.

If you have a rice cooker, this is the perfect time to use it. Brown rice does not need to be watched in a rice cooker, which is a great time saver. Just start the rice before starting anything else and it should all come together at about the same time.

If you would like to learn about using herbs in your kitchen, my kindle book Herbs In The Kitchen is available at: http://chefwilliamlikes.me/The Herb Book

This books contain information on herbs as well as some recipes to introduce you to some you may have not been using. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did when I was testing the recipes for the book.

    My son Timothy loves hot sauces, but I don’t think he has ever tried Srirahca. I’ll have to purchase some and add it to his collection in the ‘fridge. People at market are always asking me how I like to cook eggplant . . . I’m going to try this and I’m sure that I’ll have an answer for them! I’m glad your wife is home and doting on you, Chef. Sounds like some good leftovers for tomorrow! :)

      Roy had told me about the two confirm buttons, I forgot to ask my tech guy to fix
      it because I have no idea how I got two and no idea how to remove only one. I will
      email him tonight. Thanks for reminding me.

  5. I use that sauce with almost everything (my stir fry vegetables [almost any sort], sweet potatoes with cumin, quinoa with beans…]
    This sounds great, too…
    And, you got to sit back, relax, and enjoy!
