A Delicious Korean Beef Recipe.
Tickle your taste buds with this super flavorful classic Korean beef dish. Paleo and Keto friendly, this meal is loaded with protein, fiber, and nutrients. The tender beef is beautifully complemented by ribbons of crunchy cucumber and nutritious cauliflower. Overall, this is a great choice for dinner, as it provides a healthy dose of vitamins to boost your daily intake.
Cauliflower in particular adds a lot of nutrition to the meal. A member of the cruciferous vegetable family, it contains glucosinolates – sulfur compounds that help your body to detoxify. Its also packed with vitamins – B1, B2, B3, C, K, magnesium, folate, and potassium.
TIP: The longer you let the meat marinade the better – not only does it help to infuse the flavors, it also makes the meat wonderfully juicy. I prefer to use grass-fed sirloin (animals are not fed antibiotics nor are they given any hormones or GMO feed). Check out Wellness Meats for their grass-fed meat options.
- 2 cups organic cauliflower rice, frozen (or rice your own)
- 1 lb top grass-fed sirloin, slice into strips
- 6 Tbsp coconut aminos
- 2 tsps sesame oil
- 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled
- 3 cloves garlic
- 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 red pepper, sliced
- 1 cucumber, ribboned
- 1 quail egg, fried (or substitute with chicken egg)
- ½ avocado, sliced thin
- Butter lettuce
- ¼ cup green onion
- Toasted sesame seeds
Place coconut aminos, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, vinegar, pepper and salt in a blender. Add meat to a bowl and cover with the sauce mixture. Cover and place in the fridge for an hour to marinate. Meanwhile, heat the cauliflower in a pan until heated and most of liquid is absorbed. Season with a dash of seasonings, if desired. Next, add meat to a pan (draining the marinade) along with your red peppers. Cook until meat is browned through and peppers are soft. Remove from heat. Construct your bowls with cauliflower rice, lettuce, peppers, egg, cucumber, avocado, and beef. Season with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve with chopsticks.
