Step 8
Trip the bell pepper stems. Cut each bell pepper into two, in the middle. Remove seeds.
Step 9

Add a cup of water to a wok. Place on medium heat. When the hot is hot and starts steaming, place the bell peppers halves face up. Cover and steam for 1 minute.

Step 10

Using a spatula, carefully turn over the bell pepper halves, without breaking them or damaging them. Cover and steam for 1 minute.

Step 11

Repeat steps 9 and 10 one more time, or until bell pepper halves look half-cooked but still firm.
