Cauliflower Fried Rice with Beef

Yes it sounds like a sin – Cauliflower fried rice. But when you need a low carb option and are craving fried rice this, this is going to get the job done!

Cauliflower fried rice with beef is a great low carb, high protein keto friendly meal that will get your fried rice fix in!

With some shaved beef, a little egg and snow peas, this is a great keto friendly fried rice that has tons of flavor!

I haven’t made fried rice in FOREVER at home, but finally bought a new wok (and kind of screwed up seasoning it – oh well I has character now I suppose).

I love using a wok for cooking fried rice and don’t think there’s much way around it if you really want that restuaurant style flavor with fried rice.

The key to wok cooking is blistering hot heat. Some ovens have high BTU burners, but if you’re like me and have an older stove top, you’ll make do.

Or start looking on amazon for standalone wok burners. It’s in my cart itching for the buy button to be clicked.

If a traditional pan is what you have on hand, just go with the largest you have available, then you’ll want to separate out a few steps.

It’ll be a better idea to precook your eggs and beef and set them aside, then get your pan back up to heat, and cook your cauliflower rice with the sesame oil/soy sauce blend.

You’ll want to let your cauliflower rice (or crumbles in my case) cook down a bit so that they really get that rice texture and the moisture cooks off.

Aside from that – cauliflower fried rice is a great low carb meal to get on the table!

And if you’re looking for a more traditional(ish) – check out my sriracha fried rice! That’s normally my go-to recipe, sometimes without the sriracha.
