Pickled Veggies:

  • 1 cup thinly sliced cucumber
  • 1/2 medium sized thinly sliced red onion
  • 5 thinly sliced radishes
  • 1 thinly sliced (or shredded) large carrot
  • 3/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp kosher salt


  • 1-2 tbsp avocado oil or olive oil
  • 16 oz cauliflower rice (frozen or fresh)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped ginger
  • 1.5 lbs ground beef
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp chili garlic sauce or sriracha

Spicy mayo:

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp sriracha
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice

Optional garnish:

  • Sesame seeds
  • Cilantro
  • Pickled jalapeños


  1. Before cooking the bowls, pickle the vegetables. Toss veggies in a large bowl and add vinegar, water, and salt. Let sit for at least 1 hour. Drain the vinegar and water.

  2. Heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Once hot, add in 1 tbsp oil, toss in the cauliflower rice and cook until warmed and softened, about 5 minutes. Divide into 4 bowls.

  3. Keep the skillet hot, add in a bit more oil if needed. Toss in the garlic and ginger, let sauté for 2 minutes. Then stir in ground beef. Cook until browned and break up the ground beef using a wooden spoon. Stir in the coconut aminos, fish sauce, and chili garlic sauce. Remove from heat.

  4. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Stir together mayo, sriracha, and lime juice.

  5. Spoon the meat mixture over each of the bowls. Top with pickled veggies and sauce. Garnish with cilantro, sesame seeds, and pickled jalapeños (if using!).
