  • 2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic freshly minced
  • 1/2 inch Ginger freshly chopped
  • 2 Scallions, Spring Or Green Onions sliced
  • 1 Russet Potatoes cut into 1/4-inch , about 8 ounces, run under cold water for a few times
  • 1 Carrots cut into 1/4-inch matchsticks
  • 1/2 Green Bell Peppers cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/2 Sweet Red Bell Peppers cut into 1/4-inch strips


  • 2 tablespoons Tamari Soy Sauce or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar or to taste
  • 1 tsp Cornstarch
  • 1 Red Pepper Flakes to taste, optional
  • 1/2 tsp Sesame Oil


  1. Heat the oil in a wok or a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot.
  2. Add the garlic, ginger and scallions, stirring frequently, and cook for about 1 minute, until very fragrant.
  3. Stir in potato and carrot, and cook for about 8 minutes until soft but still a bit crispy.
  4. Add the bell peppers, stirring often, and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, until the bell peppers become tender-crispy.
  5. Meanwhile in a small bowl, whisk together all the sauce ingredients until well mixed.
  6. Pour the sauce over the veggies, and stir well.
  7. Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes until hot.
  8. Remove from the heat, and serve hot over the rice.
  9. Note: The potatoes should be soft but still have a bit crunchiness in it.
  10. Running the potatoes under the cold water can get rid of more starch from the potatoes, which makes the potato taste a bit crispy later.
  11. You can also add some cooked pork strips, beef strips, or shredded chicken into the dish, it's absolutely delicious.
