Low Carb Korean Beef with Cauliflower “Rice”

I know, I’ve beat into your head that I’m a carb queen. But sometimes you just have to cut the carbs (or so people say).

My boyfriend actually found a recipe to make Korean beef that you would normally serve with rice, and we made some fun adjustments to keep it carb free. After making it with him this weekend I had to try some out for myself to eat for dinner this week. In fact, this blog post is taking me longer to write than it should because  I am currently eating this sweet and spicy dish 🙂

Check it out below:


  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil or sesame oil
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • Green onions, chopped
  • 1 bag chopped cauliflower
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, or 3 teaspoons dried ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon blackstrap molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid stevia (8-10 drops)
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce (or coconut aminos, if you’re paleo)
  • Red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat oil and garlic in pan on medium heat for 1 minute, add meat and brown (7-10 minutes)
  • Meanwhile, heat cauliflower according to bag instructions. Once cooked, add to separate pan with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Drain meat and return it to pan
  • Add ginger, molasses, stevia, and soy sauce. Let it simmer for 5-6 minutes, stirring to allow flavors to blend. Add salt, pepper and red pepper to taste.
  • Remove from heat and put over cauliflower to serve, topping with chopped green onions

Not going to lie, this literally takes 3 minutes to prep for and about 10 minutes to cook. Convenient, easy and cheap. Let me know if you try it!
