   Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Puncture eggplant in a few places with

   Set aside and let cool slightly, then peel and split lengthwise into
   strips about 1 inch thick.'
   
   Heat oil in a wok or saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook
   until lightly browned. Add pork, chile, soy sauce, fish sauce, chili
   powder and sugar; cook, stirring, until meat loses its raw color. Add
   stock and water and bring to a boil. Add lime sauce, shrimp and
   eggplant; simmer until shrimp are done. Season with salt and pepper.
   Transfer eggplant pieces to a serving dish and top with pork mixture.
   Garnish with coriander and green onions.
   
   Spicy Lime Sauce: Combine garlic, chiles and the water in a blender
   or food processor and liquefy. Combine fish sauce, lime juice, sugar
   and chile-garlic mixture in a small bowl. Stir to dissolve sugar. If
   using sauce by itself, add a bit of shredded carrot for garnish.
