½ each green bell peppers

½ each sweet red bell peppers

½ each banana peppers
cut into 1/2-inch cubes, or jalapeno
8 ounces bok choy

Sauce:
2 tablespoons soy sauce, tamari

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 tablespoon oyster sauce
or to taste
1 tablespoon shaoxing wine

*
½ tablespoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons cornstarch

Directions

In a wok or a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat.

Add 1 tablespoon oil, heat until hot.

Add tofu cubes to the wok or pan, reduce heat to medium heat, stirring occasionally, and cook until the cubes become golden, brown and firm, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile whisk together all the sauce ingredients in a bowl until well blended. Set aside.

Transfer the cooked tofu onto a plate and set aside.

Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to wok or skillet, and return the heat to medium-high.

Heat until the oil is hot, add garlic, ginger, and scallions, stirring constantly, and cook for about 1 minute until very fragrant.

Stir in mushrooms, and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, 6 to 8 minutes.

Add all the peppers, and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the peppers just start to become tender.

Stir in the boy choy, cook until the leaves are wilted and the stems just start to become tender but still crisp.

Add the tofu cubes back into the wok or skillet, and pour the sauce over.

Cook and stir until all the vegetables and tofu cubes are well coated and heated through, 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and serve with steamed rice or steamed buns.

Made this dish for dinner two days ago, and it was amazingly delicious. It's hard to go wrong when you have all these yummy Asian spices and sauce being added.

Browning the tofu cubes really gave the tofu great texture, the assorted mushrooms absorbed all the great flavors from the spices and the sauce, and the bok choy added some refresh-ness and nice crunch. We enjoyed it so much.

Serving it with some steamed rice is the traditional Chinese way, also the rice will help to soak all the sauce and give your tummy more satisfaction.
