This dish might be one of my favorite meals I have ever made! I found it on Pinterest while looking for dinner ideas and the photos of this one almost made me drool!
Ok, not really - but it did look delicious and it is fairly quick and easy!
The original recipe calls for shallots, but I didn't have any, so I opted for some green onions fresh out of the garden. I also used fresh lettuce from my garden as well. The original recipe also called for coconut aminos - which is a replacement for soy sauce, specifically useful if you are on a grain-free diet.
I honestly wasn't sure how I felt about the wilty greens - but it added a really great texture and flavor to the dish that I was not expecting. I highly recommend you at least trying it! If anything, it is an easy way to sneak those extra A vitamins, fiber, and potassium in your diet.
The meat soaks up all of the seasonings and spices. I am not sure what else to say, except you just have to try it.
Korean Beef (Cauliflower) Rice Bowl
3 chopped green onions
1 tbsp grated ginger
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 lbs ground beef
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp fish sauce
4 cups cauliflower rice
3 cups of greens (I used fresh butter lettuce from my garden, but your favorite leafy greens will work!)
a dash of sriracha (optional)
toasted sesame seeds (optional)
1/4 cup Hellmann's mayo
1 tbsp sriracha
1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add sesame oil. Add the ground beef, ginger, onion, garlic, onion powder, and dash of sriracha. Cook until meat is browned.
2. While meat is cooking, microwave the cauliflower rice for about 4 minutes. Heat sesame oil in skillet and add the cauliflower rice. Sauté until moisture has dried up and the cauliflower rice starts to brown. Set aside.
3. Add soy sauce and fish sauce and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
4. Mix the sriracha and mayo in a bowl.
5. Serve rice and beef over a bed of greens and top with sauce and toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy!
Note: If you want to try this recipe, but think it may be a little too spicy for your taste, just leave the sriracha out! I highly recommend the sauce, though. Even if you just try a little bit of it. It is DELICIOUS.
