  • 1 ½ tablespoon chili garlic sauce/sambal oelek
  • 1 ½ tablespoon soy sauce
  • ¾ tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup green beans
  • 4-6 oz extra firm tofu sliced into bite size stripes
  • 1 half red bell pepper seeded and sliced into thin strips
  • ½ tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ tablespoon minced ginger
  • Basile leaves I didn’t add it as I don’t have it hand


  • In a bowl add the chili garlic sauce/ sambal oelek, soy sauce, oyster sauce, vinegar and sugar. Mix well and set aside.
  • In a skillet heat oil over medium heat and add green beans and stir well so that oil gets coats the beans and begin to blister about 1 minutes. To this add bell pepper and fry for another 1 minute, then add tofu and fry until tofu get slightly brown. Transfer the tofu and veggies into a plate.
  • Bring back the skillet to heat and add minced garlic and ginger and stir-fry for about 20 seconds, return tofu and vegetables to the skillet and pour in the sambal mixtures. Cook for a minute or so until the tofu is nicely coated in the sauce. Stir in the basil ( if you have in hand ) and enjoy.
