Korean Pork with Aubergine

Korean Pork with Aubergine

This is a delicous recipe which will use lots of your SEA larder staples. The only slightly unusual ingredient is red chilli bean sauce, available in jars from Asian shops or online. Serve as a meal with plain rice, or as canapes served in a small crisp lettuce leaf.
