I just posted my “fried rice” version of this. This is another way to serve this dish if you prefer this over a fried rice style dish. This is more of a stir fry style dish. 

This recipe has been updated since orginally posting to reduce the amount of pepper in this.
Use whatever veggies you like. Bok Choy would be nice, broccolini, sugar snap peas etc.
