This is an unusual dish. It’s creamy and very rich. It is ideal for lunch or dinner, and if you want to add a little more flavor, do not hesitate to add hot sauce.
This Loaded Keto Cauliflower bowl features the best low-carb vegetable around: cauliflower. Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable, which has been shown to reduce the risk of cancer (1).
Cauliflower is also a good source of vitamins A and C, which act as antioxidants in the body. Antioxidants help reduce free radical damage that leads to inflammation, which many health experts believe is the driving force behind many diseases.
Cauliflower has a mild flavor that takes on the taste of anything you cook it with. It pairs well with meat and cheese. In this recipe, we use shredded beef and sour cream as a base. The butter also helps increase the creaminess of the dish.
We recommend buying beef that is grass-fed and free from hormones, antibiotics, added sugars and preservatives. Grass-fed beef has become widely popular, so you should be able to find some at your local grocery store.
Research shows that grass-fed animal products contain higher amounts of omega 3 fatty acids and several nutrients, including antioxidants and certain vitamins.
Your local butcher should also have a fresh cut of meat that is from a clean source. This recipe would also work well if you only have chicken on hand.
One cup of this bowl only contains 6 grams of net carbs. This makes it an ideal meal to eat on a low-carb and strict keto diet as long as you keep your serving size down.
The combination of sour cream and bacon is a winner. It makes this dish super creamy and tasty. You can make some ahead of time and keep it in your refrigerator for leftovers. The flavors will enhance the longer they sit together.
To make, start by cooking cauliflower florets by adding it to a stovetop pan with salt water. Boil for eight minutes. Take the pan off the heat, strain and let the cauliflower cool for a bit.
Start preparing the meat by cooking chopped bacon in a pan over medium heat. Once the bacon releases the fat, start adding onion and green bell pepper to saute.
Next, add in cooked shredded beef (can be leftover roasted beef brisket or chicken). Add in butter and sour cream. Cook for 5 minutes.
Finally, add the cooked cauliflower in and stir-fry for a few more minutes then remove from heat.
Garnish with chives and cheese (optional). Serve hot.
