Broccoli & Beef Stir Fry With Fried Cauliflower Rice

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! I had the pleasure of attending a Robb Wolf seminar on Paleolithic Nutrition! ... Absolutely fantastic! I feel enriched and motivated to continue promoting the gluten free, dairy free Paleo diet! As Robb would say: This is what you do if you want to 'look better, feel better, and perform better'! :-)
Tonight's recipe was inspired by my friend, Neile, who passed on this fried cauliflower rice recipe! I decided a little broccoli beef stir fry would accompany this nicely! Thanks, Neile!

Broccoli Beef:
1 lb. beef round strips for stir fry (marinate meat for about 20 minutes)
Broccoli, cut into flowerets (about 2 cups)
2 cloves garlic, minced
Marinade:
1 T lemon juice
2 tsp. flax seed oil (or olive oil)
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground black pepper
2 tsp. toasted flax seeds
1/4 tsp. sea salt (optional)
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Stir fry sauce:
1/4 C chicken broth
2 tsp. toasted flax seeds
1 T lemon juice
1 tsp. arrowroot powder
flax seed oil or olive oil
Marinate meat for at least 20 minutes. Heat oil in wok or saute pan, and add garlic. Add beef and cook until browned. Remove Beef to side dish. In saute pan add sauce and broccoli. Cook until broccoli is al dente (tender crisp). Add beef back to the pan and mix well.

Meanwhile....
Fried Cauliflower Rice:
1 small head cauliflower
1 egg
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp. olive oil
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup grated carrot
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
ground black pepper and salt (optional) to taste
Rice the cauliflower in a food processor. Then, microwave cauliflower on high for about 3 minutes (covered in saran wrap). In a fry pan, heat olive oil and saute garlic, onion, and carrots. Whisk in egg and before egg is completely done, add cauliflower. Mix all ingredients together well.

That's it! Hope you enjoy! :-)

Kelly, this looks delicious!

Paleo so far has been AWESOME!! Can't believe I haven't done it before now... going to be a bit tricky/more challenging when I go back to Dartmouth in a month, but I think I'll manage :)

I feel like this extra "layer" has disappeared from my stomach. Can't wait for the next few months!

Just starting back on a strict zone/paleo and tried this recipe tonight--TASTY!! MY first time using cauliflower as a sub for rice--it was very filling!

Kelly! I just made this last night- easy and fantastic. I added more fresh ginger and actually sesame oil (is that Paleo?) It has SO much flavor for just a bit. AND... Clark is love love loving the rice!

Welcome back to Paleo, Erin! And, thanks for checking the site!!
Whitney!!! So glad you and Clark liked the recipe! Yes sesame oil is Paleo... and more fresh ginger sounds great!!! I was thinking maybe another egg would be good in the rice, too? The rice is just the BEST, isn't it?Thanks for posting! :-)
