First off, I’d like to say congratulations.  We made it to Friday! Welcome to the weekend everyone.  I have something delicious up my sleeve with this post, and you will not believe how healthy and yummy this substitute recipe is.

My boyfriend and I love to cook together.  In honor of Friday we decided to try a steak and veggie stir fry.  Me being the carb lover that I am decided to swap out the rice and use cauliflower as an alternative.  I have finally perfected the cauliflower rice to the point where I cannot tell the difference.  I will explain in detail on the steps to achieve this below.

Here is our grocery list for the stir fry:

-Flat Iron Steak

-Veggies: zucchini (1), Squash (1), onion (1), mushrooms (1 pckg), and cauliflower (1 head)

-2 eggs

-Garlic powder, Himalayan salt, and pepper to taste

-Allegro marinade (for steak)

-Makato teriyaki sauce (for veggies)

Marinate steaks overnight to get full flavor.  Cut into strips and cook in a skillet until medium well (or whatever you prefer, I like a little bit of pink).

Cut up the cauliflower and broil it in a pot with hot water for about 10 minutes until it is partially soft. (We don’t want it to be too soft because then you’ll end up with mashed potatoes instead of rice.)  Once it is ready, strain the water out.  Now this is the key to making successful rice!  My little secret..

Place the cauliflower back into the pot after water has been drained.  Mash cauliflower with a potato masher (works best) or a fork, until it has reached a rice like consistency.  Then place cauliflower rice in the middle of a clean kitchen towel.

Wrap up the cauliflower and squeeze the excess water out over the sink.  Once there is hardly any water dropping this is when you are ready to cook the rice in a skillet.

At this point, cut the remaining vegetables and cook in skillet on medium to high heat.  I use a little bit of coconut oil before putting veggies in the skillet.  Drizzle the teriyaki sauce over the vegetables, I use about 4-6 tablespoons.  After about 5 minutes add your cauliflower rice to the skillet and cook for another 5 minutes.

Add the two eggs and scramble them into the mix and add steak.  There you have it!  An amazing healthy alternative to stir fry!
