Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower (about 5-6 cups florets)
  • 1 frozen steam bag broccoli (12-14 ounce size)
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90/10)
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2-3 green onions, thinly sliced

Instructions

Directions:

  1. Trim the head of cauliflower to just florets, removing large stalks and outer leaves. A medium head of cauliflower should give you about 5-6 cups of trimmed cauliflower. (Keep in mind a little more or a little less won’t hurt this recipe, so don’t worry about being super precise.)

  2. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor. Press the pulse button just a few times until the cauliflower roughly resembles the appearance of rice (it doesn’t take long). Set aside.

  3. Place frozen broccoli in the microwave and cook according to package directions.

  4. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. If skillet tends to stick, give a quick shot of cooking spray. Add ground beef and cook for 5-8 minutes, or until beef is browned. 

  5. When beef is browned, add garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce, and the broccoli that you’ve steamed. Stir together and cook for 1 minute.

  6. Pour cauliflower rice into the skillet and continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until cauliflower rice is tender and everything is well combined.  Top with green onions and enjoy.

Additional Notes:

You can use fresh broccoli for this; I just find it easier and quicker to cook the frozen bag while the beef is browning.  If you use fresh broccoli, you can cook it first until crisp-tender, then set it aside while the beef browns, then add it back in.
