  • Stir in the green pepper, onion, garlic and chili sauce. Allow the ingredient to cook until the onion and garlic appear to start turning translucent (three to five minutes). Make sure that you stir the ingredient often to prevent burning. Next, add in liquid aminos, rice wine vinegar and cashews. Cook for another three to five minutes allowing the liquid to cook down. Remove from the heat and top with the sesame oil, green onions and sesame seeds and serve.

Recipe Notes

I mentioned that this recipe can be made in a wok. However, you could easily make this recipe in a nonstick skillet .
 
Also mentioned, this recipe calls for liquid aminos.
Liquid aminos is used as an alternative for soy sauce. Feel free to use actual soy sauce if desired instead.
