Special Baked Brinjal and Minced meat

Special Baked Brinjal and Minced meat

Just realized that I have quite long did not post a simple Chinese dish. Today I would like to share this simple brinjal dish. I taken a similar brinjal dish in Xiamen China recently, the taste was forgetable. Even my kids don't like brinjal, also gave thumbs up to this dish, as they like the very flavour gravy from this dish, best to serve with a plate of steamed rice.

Ah, Brinjal/Eggplant/Aubergine whichever you prefer to be called, is one of my favourite! Baked or steamed, I wonder whether the taste would be any far difference?
