Beef up Your Bowls

habits recipes Aug 23, 2021

A suggestion we often make to people to simplify their clean eating is to eat the same foods. Now, this doesn't mean your foods have to be boring. We eat a lot of the same things, just with a twist. Change up the protein, the veggie or the carb, but don't try to reinvent the wheel. Have a list of easy "go-to" options that are easy to recreate.

After making this bowl, it's going to become a staple in our house.

Here are the Ingredients:


2 lbs beef

1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce/coconut aminos

1 tablespoon Gochujang

1 tablespoon fresh ginger grated

4 cloves garlic minced or grated

1 tablespoons sesame oil

For the end- 

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds


Steamed rice, brown rice and or quinoa

Shredded cabbage

Mango thinly sliced

Steamed or roasted broccoli

Avocado sliced

Fresh basil + cilantro


To make:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Start your rice. We use a 1:1 water to rice ratio. Be sure to rinse your rice first. We cook ours in the Instapot for 4 minutes and let naturally release for 15 minutes.

Start the broccoli. We buy the pre-packaged broccolini at HEB for ease of use. Place broccoli on baking sheet, drizzle with EVOO, salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for ~20 minutes. We like ours crispy.

While the broccoli cooks, start the beef. Add in 2 pounds beef, 1 cup low sodium soy sauce/coconut aminos, 1 tablespoon Gochujang, 1 tablespoon fresh ginger grated, 4 cloves garlic minced or grated, and 1 tablespoons sesame oil. Stir occasionally.


Cook until completely browned.

While the beef cooks, prepare the toppings.

Cut up your mango and avocado. We bought a bag of shredded cabbage ready to go.

Add 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds to the beef.

Chop the cilantro and basil.

Once everything is ready, put it all in a bowl and you are ready to eat! Don't forget the toppings!


Pro Tip: Double the meat and use the leftovers to eat on all week. All of the toppings store easily too.
