Really good recipe. I used rice wine instead of water, brown sugar instead of white, and I added about a teaspoon of grated fresh ginger. Instead of adding the garlic and sesame oil at later stages in the recipe, I mixed both with the sauce. I diced the onion instead of slicing so everything would be the same shape. I used Lee Kum Kee Garlic Chili Sauce. It's really chunky and more of a paste than a sauce. I don't find it that spicy so I added red pepper flakes to the sauce to boost up the heat. I stir fried the eggplant in two batches using a 14" carbon steel wok, and added about 6 fresh basil leaves to the last batch. I returned the eggplant and onion back to the wok and then stirred in the sauce and let it cook for a minute or so. I kept stirring as it cooked to keep it from burning. I will make this again as it is a tasty and quick recipe for eggplant.

When I originally posted this recepie it called for Thai chili garlic paste (or chili bean sauce) depending on what you can find. In China I use spicey black bean sauce, and in the U.S. the Thai paste. Depends on what I have availiable. I'm not sure why it would ever be too liquid, as I more often have to add extra water rather than thicken it. I love this recepie and it is a staple in our household. Fast easy & healthy. Just the way I like them ^_^

I'm really not sure how to rate this recipe. It wasn't bad but just OK. I did have to thicken the sauce with cornstarch. The taste didn't improve as leftovers and I threw the rest out--no one wanted it again.

Excellent dish. I added some diced Greek sausage to this meal which added extra flavor, but I think it would go equally well without the sausage.

I made this dish for the first time for a dinner party. The flavors were fantastic! The only problem was that I didn't cook the eggplant long enough so it was a bit bitter. Still, some of my friends (who don't like eggplant) raved about how much they enjoyed it! I can't wait to make this dish again.

Very good! This recipe has a lot of flavor and I like that I could put it together very quickly. I didn't have chili garlic sauce so I substituted with a habanero hot sauce.

I loved this. I find eggplant is best when the texture is almost mushy so I doubled the cooking time and the results were delicious.
