Stir-fry Taro with Sweet Pepper

I bought a whole big taro or some people called yam on my last trip to Queens.It's about 5 pounds..I used half of the whole taro for this dish and left the other half for making dessert later..I like the flavor of taro and it's starchy texture which is soft and tender..This vegetarian dish is taste great pairing with any type of steamed rice..

1/2 taro or yam about 2 lbs,removed skin and cut cubes
5-6 sweet pepper,discard the seeds and cut square
2 medium onion,peeled and cut cube
4-5 cloves garlic,peeled and minced
3-4 tbsp cooking oil
2 tbsp oyster oil
4-5 tbsp water
1 tsp white pepper powder.
2 tbsp fish oil
1 tbsp sugar
 salt to taste

1:Prepare steamer or wok  with water at high heat to steam the cut taro until tender soft.Heat wok with oil and garlic.Fry garlic  for 40 seconds then toss in sweet pepper and onion.Use spatula to stir well.
2:Toss in steamed taro,fish oil,oyster sauce white pepper powder,sugar,salt and water,stir well.Check the seasoning.
3:Dish out and serve warm as dinner.
