Golden Fried Rice Recipe Ingredients:
-4 cups of water

-3 tbsp soy sauce
-2 tsp corn starch

1. Bring water to boil in a pot and simmer rice for 10 minutes until fully cooked, drain water from the pot and set aside. You can decide the amount of rice depending on the serving size, and the number of people eating in the household.
2. Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat, add halal chicken sausage that is cut up into small cubes, and the halal beef slices, stir-fry until browned then set aside in a separate bowl with the vegetables (save 1/4 cup of cooking liquid).
3. In a small cup, mix together soy sauce, corn starch, and ginger.
4. Add garlic powder to the leftover cooking liquid and use as needed to thin out the sauce until it is the consistency of egg yolk (not too thick or thin).
5. Heat up the skillet again on medium-high heat then pour in the egg yolk-thickened soy sauce mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until the sauce is heated through and thickened (the consistency of gravy).
6. Add the cooked rice, and stir to combine.
7. Add imitation crab meat and toss to coat, cook for about 30 seconds then remove from heat and serve warm.
