If you like Okra then this dish is worth a try. Pretty simple to make and it does taste good. I would say it's because of the sauce. You can try other vegetables and meat desired using the same sauce and for sure it will taste the same. 

  • 1 lb okra, remove top
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1/2 lb shrimp, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, sliced thin
  • 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hoisen sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch  
  • salt and ground brown pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 cup water

Cooking Direction:
  1. Mix water, cornstarch, hoisin sauce and oyster sauce. 
  2. Season with salt, ground pepper and mix well, set aside. 
  3. Steam okra half way done, set aside. 
  4. Saute ginger and garlic in cooking oil till caramelized.
