This is my go-to stir fry recipe! I usually substitute snow peas for the red bell pepper (personal preference) and have swapped regular mushrooms for shiitake, depending on what's available. If it is necessary to substitute Chinese 5-spice, a pinch each of ground clove, cinnamon, star anise, and fennel seems to work ok.
