Tips * Marinate the vegetables in the sauce from step 2, omitting the
arrowroot. Drain well then stir fry; mix arrow root with the reserved
marinade. * Arrowroot powder thickens at a lower temperature than flour or
cornstarch. Cornstarch may be substituted. * Frozen bell pepper strips
should be thawed and patted dry. * Pineapple may be replaced with other
fruit juice including apple, white grape,and orange.
