Korean Beef Bowls



I’m not sure what it is, but every time I announce “rice-bowls” for dinner, excitement fills the room! My kids love any kind of rice bowl, even if it’s cauliflower rice. I find this dish very quick to pull together and something we turn to often with the ease of ground beef and tasty flavors. It’s a great way to get in a good dose of cruciferous veggies and a pop of color.



Pre-riced or minced organic cauliflower is easier than ever to find in the produce or freezer section of your local store. It’s also very easy to rice it yourself with a shredder blade and food processor. But, honestly, I turn to the pre-riced stuff more often than not because the food processing can leave quite a mess in your kitchen. If white rice is part of your family’s meal plan, you can certainly opt for this choice, or even a combination of both, which I sometimes do for our kids – they’re happy and so am I.
