Remove the seeds and fibrous parts of the goya. Thinly slice the goya. Cut the bacon into thin strips. Smash the garlic or chop it finely.
Add the olive oil and garlic to a frying pan and heat over a low heat until fragrant. Add the bacon and stir-fry and mix together.
Change to a high heat and stir-fry the goya. Once the goya has become a vivid color, add flavor by adding the sugar and soy sauce. (Add a little salt if the flavor is still not enough.)
Tear the cheese into pieces and add to the frying pan and then remove from the heat. Once the cheese has melted from the remaining heat, serve on a plate. Sprinkle with pepper according to your taste.
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to eat some goya that would go well with wine, so I tried making this using the ingredients I had in my refrigerator. I made this many times this summer and finally settled on this recipe.
Adjust the amount of soy sauce and cheese according to the size of the goya.
