Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the garlic and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the beef and stir-fry until almost cooked. Add the eggplant and chilli and stir-fry for another minute. Stir through the fish sauce and oyster sauce. Cover with a lid for 2-3 minutes to allow the eggplant to steam and soften.
