The Eat.Clean.Quick. revolution continues!
This is one of my favorite clean meals by far!
The flavors and textures in this dish made me swear I was eating delicious Chinese takeout, but I knew that I was loading up on veggies and lean meat.
That’s what you call a win/win.
I whipped this dish up after a playdate last week. We rushed home with only about a half hour before Andy was due home, and I knew he’d be ready to eat right away.
I’d tossed around the idea of mashing the cauliflower and grilling up the steaks (which I totally plan to do!) but I just couldn’t get motivated to cook and mash the cauliflower and once I saw the red peppers in the fridge, it was all over.
This idea took root and I didn’t look back!
- 2 grass-fed New York strip steaks, fatty edges trimmed off
- 1 large head of broccoli
- 2 large red bell peppers
- 1 medium onion
- 1½ tablespoons coconut oil
- 4 tablespoons Veri Veri Teriyaki
- 1 large head of cauliflower, riced
- Begin by dicing the onion into large or small pieces depending on your preference.
- In a large saute pan or wok, melt the coconut oil over medium-high heat.
- Once the oil has melted, swirl it around the pan and add the diced onion, stirring occasionally until the onions are tender.
- Meanwhile begin chopping up the broccoli. I've found that it's fast and easy to hold the stem in one hand and use the other hand to cut off each floret, letting them drop onto your cutting board or into a bowl.
- Core, de-seed and slice your red bell peppers into strips.
- Once the onions are tender, add the broccoli and red pepper strips to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until they are tender-crisp.
- In the meantime, trim the fatty edges off each steak and cut them both into thin strips.
- Remove the cauliflower florets using the same method as the broccoli, only this time let them drop into the bowl of your food processor. (You may need to process the full head of cauliflower in two batches depending on the size of your food processor.)
- Add the steak strips to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently until the steak is all browned.
- In the meantime, pulse the cauliflower in the food processor until a "rice like" consistency is achieved.
- Add the cauliflower "rice" to the steak and veggies and stir fry for 2-3 minutes until everything is heated through. **I cooked my "rice" in a separate pan and topped it with the stir-fry per the photo, but cooking the "rice" in with the meat and veggies is quicker and saves on clean up!**
Veri Veri Teryaki is delicious and has a pretty decent ingredient list (although it’s not wheat free). I buy mine at Kroger but have seen it many other places.
