Your pork chop looks yummy, though I have never tried eggplant. I'm sure it tasted delish!

Thank you. I like eggplant for this I used the Asian ones they are less bitter. The one problem with eggplant is they love to soak up oil. Using this method it soaks up less oil. Real hot wok with a coating of oil. Add the veggies cook until they get kind of dry looking on the outside. Add only enough oil as you go along to keep them from sticking. As long as you keep the stuff moving it works.

I'll have to try that. I have a great wok, but it has a handle. Maybe in my case, it could be good thing. I might be able to "keep the stuff moving."

Yes, eggplant is definitely the ugly duckling of the vegetable world. No matter what you try it always turns brown and looks soggy or mushy. But, I love it also.

Eggplant is one of my favorite things...maybe because the skin is purple...I so like purple!

Great-looking dinner. You can't go wrong with chili dogs and tater-tots! Your salad looks delish, too!
