【酱香茄丁卤面】Eggplant Black Sauce Noodle

Traditional Beijing Zhajiang Mian (Black sauce noodle) is one of my favorite ways to have noodle. Today I am making a variation of the noodle using Japanese Eggplant, another favorite cooking ingredients in our house. It turned out to be so delicious that even my 7 year old had a full bowl.

1 根 茄子 (茄丁)
1 小勺 干黄酱 (我用了Miso)
1 小包 甜面酱
1 小勺 姜末
1 小勺 糖

200 g of pork belly (Skinned, and cut into small pieces)
1 Japanese Eggplant (Clean and cubed)
1 tsp Yellow fermented Soy Sauce (I used Miso)
1 packet of sweet sauce (甜面酱)
1 spring onion
1 tsp minced ginger
