  • 1 2/3 cups soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup sake or dry sherry
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup dark roasted sesame oil
  • 20 each (5 pounds total) turkey steaks, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 5 cups onion, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons ginger, minced
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons fresh garlic, minced
  • 7 cups zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 7 cups yellow squash, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 8 cups red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 3/4-inch chunks

Blend the soy sauce, sake (or sherry), hoisin sauce, cornstarch, pepper flakes and sugar in a small bowl and set aside.

Heat both oils in a large pan or wok. When very hot, add the turkey strips and stir-fry until just cooked. Remove from the pan, set aside, and keep warm.

Add the onion to the pan and cook for 30 seconds. Add the ginger and garlic and cook, stirring constantly for 30 seconds. Add the zucchini and yellow squash. Cook, stirring frequently, for approximately 1 minute. Add the red peppers and mushrooms and cook for another 30 seconds. Add the Chinese cabbage and cooked turkey. Stir briefly and immediately add the soy sauce mixture.

Toss and cook until all the ingredients are coated and the sauce is thickened. Serve on hot plates immediately.
