Inspired by traditional Korean cuisine, this Korean Beef Bulgogi with Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe is a flavour-packed, veggie-ful, high-protein lunch or dinner.



For the beef and marinade:

  • 250g uncooked grass-fed sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 small apple or pear, grated
  • 1 small green onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 tbsp low sodium tamari or coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp each rice vinegar, minced ginger, coconut sugar and toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp gochujang (Korean curry paste), or 1  tsp sriracha or 1/2 tsp dried red pepper flakes

For the rest:

  • 2 tsp coconut oil or avocado oil
  • 2 cups cauliflower rice
  • 1/2 cup kimchi
  • 2 cups shredded spinach
  • 1 cup cucumber
  • 1/2 cup sliced watermelon radish
  • 1/2 cup minced bell peppers
  • sliced green onions, sesame seeds, mint, cilantro and limes, to garnish


  • Combine all ingredients for the marinade in a resealable container, along with the beef strips. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat the coconut/avocado oil in a frying pan and allow it to melt. Add the cauliflower rice and kimchi, stir frying until warm throughout and well combined. Divide it between 2 serving bowls.
  • Distribute the remaining ingredients except garnishes between the 2 bowls.
  • When ready to cook the meat, place the frying ban back over high heat for 1 minute. Add the beef strips and a some of their marinade to the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes per side. (They won’t take long – just a quick stir fry is all they need.)
  • Transfer the beef evenly between the bowls and top with any or all of the garnishes.
