2 tbsp of Canola Oil
4 Assorted Bell Peppers (Can you more if you like bell peppers)
1 medium Onion
3 cloves of garlic
1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes (optional)
2-3 Chicken Breasts, cut in half and thinly sliced (You want thin chicken strips)
Medium-sized shrimp (I use a precooked bag of 35/45 shrimp) - You can leave this out if you do not like shrimp or modify the amount if necessary
Beef Strips (You can use flank steak, strip loin or whatever beef strips you would like to use)
1/4 cup Oyster Sauce
2 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
Rice (Can use brown, white or basmati)
Prepare all of your veggies and meat choices. Thinly cut all of your vegetables into slices and prepare your meat by cutting it into thin strips.
Heat up the oil in a wok or pot of your choice on medium to low heat. When the oil is heated, add your onions and garlic and cook until the onions are translucent.
While waiting for your onions and garlic to cook, start cooking your beef, chicken and/or shrimp in a different pot. Cook them enough so they are no longer raw.
Once you have cooked your protein of choice, add that to your onions and garlic and cook, covered, for another 3-5 mins.
Add your bell peppers, mushrooms and any other vegetables you want to use into the pot.
Add red pepper flakes (optional), oyster sauce and hoisin sauce and mix very well. You want to make sure all of your vegetables and protein is coated with the sauce.
Cover and allow your stir fry to cook on low to medium heat for approximately 30 mins. You can adjust this time accordingly, based on how soft or crunchy you would like your veggies. - I personally like mine soft, so I cook it for the full amount of time. Covering the pot while cooking will also allow the veggies to give off some water and create the gravy in your dish.
While your veggies are cooking, add rice to boiling water and cook to the desired softness and texture.
Once your stir fry is at the desired softness, remove from heat and serve with your rice!
