  • 4 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • basmati rice, to serve

Method

  1. Heat a drop of the oil in a non-stick wok or large frying pan. Cook the mince, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, for about 10 mins, or until cooked through. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

  2. Heat the remaining oil in the pan and fry the aubergine for about 10 mins, until tender and cooked through. Add half the chilli, the garlic and mushrooms, then cook for a further few mins. Return the mince to the pan and add most of the spring onions, the oyster sauce, sugar and 200ml water. Bubble for a few mins, then serve immediately with boiled rice and the remaining chilli and spring onions scattered on top.

This is an easy, tasty way to cook mince. I only had a green chilli and ordinary mushrooms but the result was still lovely.

just made this, really tasty - got my boyfriend to like mushrooms! but didn't have oyster sauce, used worcestershire sauce & soy sauce instead but think it was missing something. added in sweet peppers at the same time as the mushrooms and chilli

My family LOVE this! It has brilliant big flavours - and somehow, the when it's cooking, it smells really authentically Chinese (I know, probably the oyster sauce!) I served it with noodles and not rice and added some stir-fried pak choi on the side. I'm sure I'm going to cook this again and again - but would recommend slicing the aubergine fairly thinly (before cutting into thick slices!) otherwise the skin can get a bit tough, even when the flesh of the aubergine is tender.

this was ok but it didn't look amazingly attractive.
