1-1/2 lbs. pork tenderloins, trimmed and cut into 1/8 inch strips

While rice is cooking, preheat oven to temperature 350°F. Place eggplant slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush with 1 Tbs. oil. Bake 30 minutes, or until eggplant is tender. Transfer to a platter. Cut eggplant into 2 inch pieces. Cover and set aside.

Heat remaining oil in a wok or heavy nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Sauté pork 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Add remaining ingredients, except sesame seeds and cilantro.
