Pick your favorite organic protein, be it meat or plant-based, and in under 30 minutes you’ll be serving up these yummy bowls to your thankful crew. Easy to customize to your liking (we double it in our house for leftovers).
1 lb. organic protein of your choice (locally sourced ground beef/venison, chicken, tofu, vegan crumble, etc.)
3 minced organic garlic cloves
¼ cup packed organic dark brown sugar (I love the Wholesome brand)
¼ cup organic coconut amino
2 tsp organic sesame oil (Tip: keep your sesame oil in the fridge for best freshness)
½ tsp minced fresh organic ginger
¼ tsp organic crushed red pepper flakes or sambal oelek chili paste
¼ tsp organic black pepper
2 cups hot cooked organic rice, white or brown
Sliced organic green onions/chives/leeks (choose one or mix them) and toasted organic sesame seeds for garnish
- Cook protein and garlic in a large wok or skillet until done (heat and time will depend on protein used)
- In a small-medium bowl, whisk brown sugar, coconut amino, sesame oil, ginger, red pepper flakes/sambal oelek, and black pepper. Add to your protein and simmer 1-2 minutes.
Traditionally, the mix is served over rice, with a green onion/chive/leek and toasted sesame seed garnish. Steam or roast a combo of your favorite veggies for a perfect side dish. Going keto or watching your carb intake? The protein mix is a great lettuce wrap filling too! (Or mix with the rice and enjoy as a wrap.)
