When eating at a Chinese restaurant, one of the default dishes for my bff and I especially when we can’t decide what to eat is claypot eggplant and minced pork. After ordering it for some umpteenth time, we decided we have a claypot at home so why not try to make it ourselves.

  • 1 tablespoon of regular soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
