Ingredients

  • 1 stick butter (divided into 2 halves)
  • 1 lb. fajita style or stew beef
  • 24 oz. frozen, riced cauliflower (thawed)
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 12 oz. frozen, shelled edamame (thawed)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup pho broth (or beef broth)
  • 2 eggs

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, add a half stick of butter. Melt the butter over medium-high heat, until it begins to sizzle. 
  • Add the thawed fajita or beef stew meat. Brown on both sides of the meat until it has a nice sear to it, but be sure not to over cook. Remove the meat from the pan and set aside.
  • Add thawed riced cauliflower to the leftover butter in the skillet. Saute for 3 to 4 minutes stirring occasionally so it doesn't stick.
  • To the cauliflower, add edamame, soy sauce and broth. Turn down heat to medium, and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Make a well in the middle of the skillet, and crack in 2 eggs. Scramble the eggs until cooked, mixing with the cauliflower mixture.
  • In the microwave, melt additional half stick of butter, and add minced garlic. 
  • Add melted butter and beef back into the skillet, and stir until mixed. Cook 1 to 2 minutes longer or until heated through.
