Can anyone give me a recipe to eggplant in some kind of sweet sauce?
I have been to 2 restaurants and had similar dishes. One at a Sushi/Hibachi restaurant and then at the famous PF Changs. It is a Japanese eggplant in some kind of dark sweet sauce, maybe with soy sauce but it is a lot thicker. I am a pretty good cook and do it a lot, and I have tried making it with Hoisin sauce which is what I thought it may have been and it did not come out right. Does anyone know how to make this dish, I know it is famous because I have seen it on several different menus, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese....someone out there has to know how to make it! I really love this vegetarian dish and want to make it at home, it is cheaper than going to eat it at a restaurant!
The ones I tried were not really spicy.....

Hot and Sour Chinese Eggplant
2 long Chinese eggplants, cubed
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 green chile pepper, chopped
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon chili oil, or to taste
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Place the eggplant cubes into a large bowl, and sprinkle with salt. Fill with enough water to cover, and let stand for 30 minutes. Rinse well, and drain on paper towels.
In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, red wine vinegar, sugar, chile pepper, cornstarch and chili oil. Set the sauce aside.
Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Fry the eggplant until it is tender and begins to brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour in the sauce, and cook and stir until the sauce is thick and the eggplant is evenly coated. Serve immediately.
