Eggplant w/ Minced Pork

My hubby never really likes vegetables. Except for a few I can name...
Mixing meat and veggies on some of your menus is a good way to still the get the benefits of 'gulay'. You can always include ground meat (pork, beef or chicken) in your grocery list. You can just use a portion of it and mix it with some greens for a hearty meal.
Here's a simple eggplant recipe, easy as well...

1/4 kilo ground pork, lean
4 pcs. medium eggplant, sliced 2" long
3 pcs. garlic, minced
1 medium onion, minced
1 pc. red/green chili, sliced (optional)
2 tbsp. oyster sauce
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. corn starch, dissolved in 1/2 cup water

1. In a pan, heat oil and sautee onion and garlic until tender.
2. Add in meat and simmer for 5-10 minutes, covered until cooked.
3. First add soy sauce, mixing meat well, then add in oyster sauce and eggplant. Finally add dissolved corn starch and chili if using, and let it simmer for another 5 minutes.
