Honey-Soy Asian beef simmered in the slow cooker until tender and served over low-carb cauliflower fried rice!
I can’t believe this is my first beef recipe. What can I say…I’m a chicken eatin’ gal.
When I was little, I could pass on just about any cheese-smothered burger and go without a juicy steak. Chicken was the star in our house and my mother always said “Little girl, you have one more chicken nugget, you are going to turn into one!” The one statement I remember from her that I am glad did not come true.
So let’s start this Monday off with a big ol’ bowl of shredded asian beef. Tender beef that is fall off the bone delicious thanks to the slow cooker. Jazzed up with soy sauce, honey, garlic, and a touch of ginger, this beef is a simple as it gets. Practically cooks itself. Now that is a win-win!
You could serve the asian beef over basmati rice, coconut rice or to spice things up, you can make some figure friendly and colorful cauliflower fried rice. With summer and a wedding approaching, I am finding more ways to incorporate more veggies into my diet. Cauliflower is riced, then sauteed with garlic to crisp up, then red peppers, mushrooms and broccoli are next into the pan to lightly char. The cauliflower is added back to the pan and tossed with rice wine vinegar, soy sauce and red pepper flakes for a touch of heat.
There is something magical with making a successful Chinese dish at home. It can be rather difficult to get the perfect balance of sweet and saltiness in the sauce, to cook fall off the bone-meat and to finish it off with a fluffy bed of rice or cauliflower rice but when it all comes together, you will hardly be able to put your fork (or chopsticks) down!
