INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large wok, heat ONE tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower rice. With black pepper and sea salt, season, if desired. Until it gets cooked through, saute for 3-5 minutes.
  2. From heat, remove the cauliflower rice, put it aside, and to keep warm, cover.
  3. Whisk together the red pepper flakes, beef broth, sesame oil, ground ginger, and coconut aminos in a small bowl. Set the sauce aside.
  4. To medium-high, turn heat back. To the wok, add another tablespoon olive oil. Put ground beef and with sea salt, season. Breaking up with a spatula and stirring occasionally, cook for about 8-10 minutes, until it gets browned.
  5. In the beef and add the minced garlic, make a well. Until it gets fragrant, saute for about a minute, then mix into the beef.
  6. Over the beef, pour the sauce. Reduce heat after bringing to a simmer, and for 3-4 minutes, simmer, until the sauce is thickened and reduced. There won’t be much liquid left.
  7. Among plates, divide the cauliflower rice. Top with ground beef.
  8. Garnish with cucumber slices, sesame seeds, and sliced green onions.
