It's very important for this (and my other stir-fry recipes) to have all of your ingredients and seasonings prepped and ready to go. The cooking steps go in quick succession.
MAKE AHEAD: In advance you can whisk together the sauce ingredients except for the water and cornstarch. You can also slice the bell pepper and scallions in advance. Rice can be pre-cooked and reheated.
VARIATIONS: Add different vegetables of choice. Hearty greens should be added when the recipe says to add the collard greens. Other vegetables (e.g. broccoli, onion strips, snap peas, etc.) should be added when the recipe says to add the bell peppers. Quick cooking greens like spinach should be wilted in right at the end.
