Prep: 5 minutes

Cook: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes



Cauliflower Rice:

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 lb Cauliflower (frozen or fresh riced in a food processor)
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black pepper (optional)


  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 lb Ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 4 cloves Garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 cup Gluten-free Tamari Sauce or Coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup Beef broth
  • 2 tsp Sesame oil
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (to taste if desired)


  • 1/4 cup Green onions (sliced)
  • 1 tsp Sesame seeds
  • 1 small Cucumber (8 ounces, sliced, optional)


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut aminos, beef broth, sesame oil, ground ginger, and red pepper flakes. Set the sauce aside.
  2. Turn heat back to medium-high. Add another tablespoon (15 mL) olive oil to the wok. Add the ground beef and season with sea salt. Cook for about 8-10 minutes, breaking up with a spatula and stirring occasionally until browned.
  3. Make a well in the beef and add the minced garlic. Saute for about a minute, until fragrant, then mix into the beef.
  4. Pour the sauce over the beef. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes, until the sauce is reduced and thickened. There won’t be much liquid left.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon (15 mL) oil in a large wok or pan, over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower rice. Season with sea salt and black pepper, if desired. Sauté for 3-5 minutes, until cooked through.
  6. Remove the cauliflower rice from heat.
  7. Divide the cauliflower rice among plates. Top with ground beef. Garnish with sliced green onions, sesame seeds, and cucumber slices.

Variations: If you like it sweet, you can add 2-3 tbsp of your sweetener of choice to the sauce before adding to the beef. If you use a sugar-free sweetener, it’s best to use either powdered erythritol
