1-  Marinade the pork with "Tony marinade method" for 15 minutes.  Meanwhile, heat the non-stick pan with 2 tbsp of oil low high heat.  Add in the garlic slices.  Pan-fry the garlic until both side turns light brown.  Dish up the garlic and oil.  Put it aside.

4-  Add in Group A sauce mixture.  Mix it well and bring the sauce to boil.  Mix the Group B sauce mixture together.  Add in the group B sauce mixture and stir-fry the ingredient until the sauce is thickened.  Dish it up.  Top with cooked garlic slices.  Serve it in hot.

貼士 Tips                                                                            
1- Garlic slices is easy to overcook.  Pan fry it in low heat with patience.  Dish it up when it is light brown.

2- It is not necessary to add all corn starch mixture (Group B Sauce mixture).  Add small portion and check the sauce to see if it is thicken enough.  Add more only if it is necessary.
3- Eggplants will absorb a lot of oil.  It is better to simmer it with hot water as it is healthier.
