Ground Beef and Cauliflower Rice


Here is my current go to dinner, we enjoy it every week or so.  I always have the short list of ingredients in the house.  The kids love it, Josh loves it, and I love it.  There is minimal prep and it’s cooked in one pan.  Are you sold yet?  You should be.  This meal idea floats around the paleo world and I thought it would be fun to share my version.  Ground beef, garlic, tomato sauce, capers, pecorino romano, and cauliflower rice.

And speaking of cauli rice have you tried Trader Joe’s frozen organic cauliflower rice?  Well let me tell you I am hooked!  The texture is way better than anything I’ve ever made fresh.  The pieces are the perfect uniform size and when cooked it doesn’t turn to mush.  I have 5 bags stashed in my freezer right now.  Seriously!  Typically frozen vegetables are not my thing but this cauliflower takes it to a whole new level!  And here’s Cash wondering what this talk is all about cauliflower?  I think he thought we were eating pasta.  But this was a total mom win!  He didn’t even question the cauliflower and gobbled it right up!


As you can tell I’m pretty amped about this meal.  I love capers and they offer the perfect zing to the easiest dinner ever.  I have yet to get tired of it and same goes for the rest of my family.  It doesn’t take a lot of time to make a simple and healthy home cooked meal!
