Taugi (Bean Sprouts Stir-Fry)

This is my first try of Taugi. I love this ever since I was in Phi. But I didn't know the right recipe so I just made my own. It turned out good and hubby liked it. We even ate it without rice, we liked the crispness of the bean sprouts and the string beans added with the sweet taste of the shrimp and chicken meat.
less than a lb boneless Chicken breast, sliced (you may use a lb of it)
1/2 cup shrimp (you can use more)
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 part of the green bell pepper
1/2 part of the medium onion
1/4 lb string beans
1-1/2 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup water (divide to two 1/4 cups)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp cooking oil
1/2 cube chicken bouillon
You may add tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste (optional)
Put oil on a heated wok (medium heat). Saute garlic, onion and pepper. Add chicken meat. Cook for 3 minutes or more until cooked.Add shrimp and cook it for 1 minute. Add the string beans and 1/4 cup water. Let it boil. Then add the chicken bouillon cube and soy sauce. Cook for 1 minute then add the bean sprouts. You may add the other 1/4 cup of water. Stir and cook for another minute or more till the vegetables are tender. Serve over hot rice.

Hi, I'll cook Taugi for dinner tonight and when I searched online for recipes I came across with your website.

We just got married and love pinoy food so much. I find your site very helpful since I have not tried cooking everyday food when I was still single. Anyway, I'd like you to know I bookmarked your site and I will be getting my weekly recipe here and grocery list. Love your posts!
