  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced or grated ginger

How to make this recipe

  1. Cut the eggplant in half lengthwise, and then cut into 1/2-inch slices. Set aside.

  2. In a small saucepan add the soy sauce, sake, brown sugar, rice vinegar, and ginger. Heat and stir until the brown sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside.

  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and after the oil is hot, stir in the eggplant. Cook for 3-5 minutes, turning occasionally, until the eggplant is seared.

  4. Stir in the teriyaki sauce and tomatoes, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 1-2 minutes, or until the tomatoes are tender.
