7 Spicy Minced Pork and Eggplant Recipe  

The spicy flavor doesn’t have to come from fresh chilis. If you have a stash of chili pastes, chili powders, chili oils, and even crunchy chili bits, these would make fantastic ingredients to use in dishes to add a different kind of spicy to your dish. 

For this dish, it’s the Chinese chili and fermented bean paste (toban jan) that gives it that signature heat. What makes this ingredient better than other chili pastes is that it’s not just chili that’s in it. The mashed and fermented beans in it contribute a powerful flavor that makes this dish super delicious and super flavorful.
