I made this Mongolian crab fried rice recipe in partnership with San-J, and my family went completely bazonks when they tasted it! Stir fried rice has always been a favorite, but this was the first time I flipped it upside down with new flavors and new ingredients.
Boy oh boy, did it work!
I had a variety of San-J products to play around with when creating the recipe, and I knew upon tasting the sweet and savory Mongolian Stir-Fry & Marinade (gluten-free) that it would perfectly enhance the flavor of the crab meat.
To make the Mongolian crab fried rice, start cooking the jasmine rice. While that cooks, get your veggies chopped and then saute those babies. When they’re ready, you’ll add in the Mongolian sauce.
In a separate frying pan, get the onion and ginger going. To this, you’ll add the now-cooked jasmine rice. All of it.
Now comes the soy sauce twist. Have you ever tasted soy sauce and thought it was overly salty and a bit severe on the tongue? Right? Well that won’t do, so I want you to use San-J Organic Tamari sauce because it has a smoother, richer, more palatable flavor than regular soy sauce. Trust me.
Bonus; it’s gluten-free too.
So add that tamari.
Then the cooked veggies.
Then the crabby bits.
Now just give it all a good toss-together. let it heat through, and dinner is served.
