Add salt and boil bell peppers for about 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove excess water with a paper towel.
Heat the oil, then stir fry the bell peppers in sugar, oyster sauce, then sesame oil (in that order), and sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving! There! You now have a perfect, child-pleasing bell pepper dish!
Story Behind this Recipe
I was troubled since my kids would not eat bell peppers! Then, at a lunch menu tasting event held at their kindergarten, I learned from the cook that parboiling the bell peppers removes the bitterness. I made it right away and was amazed! We overcame the "I-hate-peppers" phase!!
Be sure to add the salt to the hot water! Parboiling the bell peppers removes the bitterness.
