WEEKNIGHT DINNER BEEF BOWLS

WEEKNIGHT DINNER BEEF BOWLS | designlovefest

we’re all about that bowl life over here at DLF and we’re back with another super easy one to throw together for a weeknight dinner. it has a good mix of veggies, protein and rice. ivan toasted the rice in coconut oil before cooking it and it gave it a really great nutty and slightly sweet flavor but still left it super fluffy (something that can be hard to accomplish when you make rice with coconut milk). we tossed the veggies in a little coconut sugar, rice wine vinegar and salt but you could skip that step if you’re tight on time. we also picked a really thin cut of meat so it requires very minimal cooking time! – joanie

• on medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a sauce pan. lightly toast 1 cup of white rice in the coconut oil until they slightly turn brown and is fragrant. cover with 2 cups water and add 1/2 teaspoon salt. cook on low heat until water is evaporated and rice is fluffy. set aside.

• mince your skirt steak, and then marinate it with the sesame oil, ginger paste, soy sauce, and salt for about 10-15 minutes. in a pan heated on medium, cook the meat until browned on all sides and juices have cooked down, about 5-7 minutes. set aside

• wash and peel your carrots and shave them into ribbons (or grate them). in a bowl toss with rice vinegar and coconut sugar. repeat the same process with cucumber slices.

    (I also love her insta stories, as you were asking, bri!)

    Is there a tag for all of the DLF recipes? I searched recipes in the search box but not everything came up.
