Have you tried any of my sauces? They are all so versatile and can be used for many dishes. ‘Sweet Miso Sauce’ is one of them. I simply stir-fry Eggplant and Green Capsicum, then add Pork Mince, and seasoned with the ‘Sweet Miso Sauce’ with chilli bean sauce for spiciness. So easy to cook and so yummy. We always eat this dish with rice, so I have made it into ‘Donburi (Rice bowl)’ dish. This will never disappoint you.
