This is a quick side dish. Eggplant goes so well with miso and green capsicum adds bright colour to the dish. My Miso Stir Fry with Eggplant, Capsicum and Pork uses thinly sliced pork but you can make it with mixed pork (ground pork). Or even without meat. Then it becomes a vegetarian dish.
If you ask Japanese people what the classic miso stir fry dish (miso itame, 味噌炒め) is, they will all say ‘Miso Stir Fry with Eggplant and Capsicum’. Each household might have different flavouring in the sauce and the vegetables might be cut differently, but the basic sauce is made of miso, sugar, soy sauce, sake and mirin….
