Recipe: Low Carb – Keto – Beef Fried Rice (Cauliflower)

20131216-125516.jpg
I’m always looking for more recipes that uses grass-fed ground beef, and this is a good one! You wouldn’t think that hamburger would make a good low carb fried “rice”, but the meat lends well to the flavors of garlic, ginger and fermented soy. This is a filling and satisfying fall meal.

Our family really loves fried rice and I used to make it a lot! It’s a great meal to make because you pretty much use all of your leftover veggies, meat and rice, throw it all together and you have dinner. But since I’m following a ketogenic diet now and eating low carb paleo, I haven’t been eating rice. I had really missed fried rice, but using riced cauliflower in the place of real rice in this recipe really fits the bill. Don’t forget to use a gluten free soy sauce!

One note: you’ll see in the picture above that I used peas in this recipe. I won’t do that again. I didn’t think just a few peas would have so many carbs, but I just don’t find that they’re worth the carb count, even in small amounts. Green onions added to the recipe give the green that the recipe needs and a good flavor too. Mushrooms and/or cut up chard or kale would also be a GREAT low carb veggie choice to add to this dish, and add some important nutrients.

Let us know how you make your fried “rice” in the comments. Enjoy!

Grass Fed Beef Fried Rice – Low Carb and Keto Recipe
Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 20 mins Total time: 30 mins
Serves: 6

I make a bucketful of this recipe at one time, but feel free to cut this in half for your family!
Ingredients
2 pounds grass-fed ground beef, thawed {see tweak}
3 Tablespoons coconut oil, ghee, or butter (divided)
4 eggs, beaten with a teaspoon of gluten free soy sauce {see tweak}
1 medium to large head of cauliflower, grated or “riced” with a food processor
¼ cup gluten free naturally fermented soy sauce
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 inch knob of ginger, minced with a microplane
3-4 green onions (both white and green parts), cut in small discs
hot sauce, pepper paste or crushed red pepper to taste

Instructions:
In a large saucepan, heat up 2 tablespoons of the oil, ghee or butter and brown the hamburger. You’ll want the ground beef to be in small pieces.
While the hamburger is browning, get your cauliflower riced/chopped. I use a food processor and just pulse the florets until they’re in small rice-like pieces.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs with a tiny bit of the gluten free soy sauce.
Heat 1 Tablespoon of your oil of choice in a separate pan, and cook the eggs in one round sheet (like an omelet). Flip when done on one side, cut into strips and set aside.
When hamburger is done browning, add the garlic, ginger, naturally fermented soy sauce, and the cauliflower.
Stir until well combined, cover and cook on medium until the cauliflower is done, about 7-8 minutes.
Remove cover and turn up the heat to medium high. Add the green onions and eggs (and optional hot sauce or pepper paste). Fry until the remaining liquid is gone, about 5 minutes.
Test for seasoning and add more soy sauce, garlic or pepper paste if needed.

Ok well first off they didn’t tell you it was ground beef until you read the directions!

Tweak: So I bought round steak and sliced it up. Ground beef would have cooked better and more tender. However; with the round steak it actually makes you feel like you are eating steak!

Riced cauliflower! Well, I ran into a snag there! I have an old fashioned ricer and it didn’t want to rice it!

Then I tried a little electric chopper and it was jamming! So, I got pissed and dumped the entire head Into my vitamix which ended up almost mashing it! Next time I have to use ground beef and figure out how to rice it!

Tweak: don’t forget to use Braggs liquid aminos in place of soy sauce!

I added a orange bell pepper that I had left over from the mustard Balsamic recipe. The picture of the fried rice has green peas in it, but the ingredients leave it out, do I forgot to add them!
