Easy Sriracha Beef Cauliflower Rice Bowls are super easy and super delicious. Dinner done in 20 minutes.
January has started off with a boom. And when I say a boom, I mean I have been busier than ever. Our new website Sunday Supper Media just launched, the boys and their friends have all been hanging out (our home is a magnet for friends, may have something to do with the food) and our daughter’s wedding is just around the corner! As you can imagine, I am all about quick, easy and nutritious when it comes to preparing food for my family.
We are a beef loving family and while we love our roasts this time of year, there are some days I need to get dinner on the table in a snap! That’s where recipes with thinly sliced beef come in and save the day. This recipe for Easy Sriracha Beef Cauliflower Rice Bowls has become an all time favorite and I can have it on the table from start to finish in less than 20 minutes. The best part, everyone can add their own toppings to make it their own. I use the packaged riced cauliflower found in the produce section of my grocer. Let’s be honest, I don’t have time to grate or mess around with a food processor when I can pick up a bag open and hello!
We eat beef a couple of times of week at our home. My boys love the taste and I love that I am preparing a nutritious meal for them!
- 2 cups of water
- 4 cups riced cauliflower
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 1 pound thinly sliced top sirloin steak cut into strips
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon fresh garlic or 1 head of garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce (you can add more if you would like it spicier)
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
- ¼ cup of crushed cashews
- 2 green onions, sliced thin
- creamy sriracha (optional)
- salt and pepper to taste
- In a large saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
- Add the riced cauliflower and spinach. Cover and lower the heat to medium low.
- Simmer for approximately 15 minutes or until all the water is absorbed and vegetables are soft.
- While the vegetables are cooking, add the olive oil to a skillet on medium heat.
- Add the beef and saute on all sides for approximately 5-7 minutes.
- Add the garlic, sriracha sauce and balsamic vinegar and saute until well coated and a caramelization begins to form on the beef, approximately 5 minutes.
- Add the cashews and while stirring the beef with a wooden spoon until the beef is coated in bits of cashews.
- Place the cauliflower rice in bowls and top with beef.
- Add green onions on top and drizzle creamy sriracha if desired.
- Three ounces of lean beef has more iron than 2 ¾ cups of spinach.
- Lean ground beef has fewer calories than ground turkey with 162 calories in three ounces of ground beef to 176 calories in three ounces of ground turkey.
- Lean ground beef also has less fat than ground turkey: 7.5 grams for three ounces of beef and 9.7 grams for ground turkey.
- Beef is a great source of 10 essential nutrients: iron, choline, protein, selenium, vitamins B6 and B12, zinc, phosphorus, niacin, and riboflavin.
- A 3-ounce serving of lean beef provides your body with 25 grams of protein, which is half your daily protein needs.
