1 can diced tomatoes; drained
2 cups water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Heat oil in a large skillet until very hot. Add the meat and stir-fry until nicely browned. Add the onion, water, garlic salt, and ginger. Bring mixture to a boil, cover and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the bell peppers, cover, and cook about 5 more minutes, or until the peppers are tender. Add the tomatoes.
