Egg Roll In A Bowl
1.5 lbs ground beef (I use grass fed, lean 90/10)
2 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 tsp minced garlic
8-10 baby bella mushrooms, chopped
~ 1/2 head green cabbage, sliced
1/2 - 3/4 bunch bok choy, sliced
1 large carrot, small chopped
1/4 head red cabbage, sliced
1/2 small yellow onion, thin sliced
1/4 cup liquid aminos
1 tbsp rice wine or dry sherry
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
2 tsp sesame seeds
green onion, sliced
If your rice is not cooked already, get cookin! For perfect jasmine rice, use one part rice to 2 parts water. Toast your rice in a hot pot for a few minutes, then add in your water and a sprinkle of chicken bouillon. Cover with a lid, bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Cook just until water is all absorbed by the rice and remove from the heat. Let sit 5 minutes and then fluff with a fork.
In a large pan, heat your olive oil on high. Once hot, add in your ground beef. Break up into smaller chunks as it cooks. Stir and cook until all the pink is gone (roughly 6 minutes).
Add in your chopped mushrooms, garlic, and ginger. Turn heat down to medium high, stir and cook another minute.
Add in your cabbage, bok choy, carrots, and onion. Stir everything together carefully until incorporated.
In a measuring cup, combine liquid aminos, rice wine, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. Pour over your ground beef and veggie mix and stir to coat. Continue cooking until veggies are wilted and cooked to your desired doneness.
Serve the ground beef mixture over jasmine rice and top with extra sesame seeds & sliced green onion!

** this recipe isn’t 100% Be Better Challenge friendly. Liquid aminos would be processed foods and rice wine or sherry would be alcohol so they would be considered added sugars and processed foods. If you want to get all your points, leave them both out and add in some extra garlic, ginger, and season with salt & pepper. If you still want that “soy sauce” flavor then just leave out the rice wine and keep the liquid aminos so you can still get your no added sugars point!
