A friend gave me this the other day...

It is goya, a vegetable famous in the southern islands of Okinawa, I have never cooked it before, so I got a sauce from the supermarket and followed the directions. This is what it looks like inside.

So, first you wash and slice (turned out my slices were a bit thick) then sprinkle with salt and leave for 10 minutes. Wash off the salt.

Then fry some tofu until brown, then fry up some pork and the goya add the sauce and tofu the stir in two beaten eggs. You end up with this...

I would like to say it was delicious BUT that would be lying, the goya was bloody awful, really bitter, to the point where you think, why on earth would anyone want to eat this! The rest of it was OK. Needless to say, I won't be rushing out to buy more.
