Is this thing on?
Okay so this recipe has no:
Nor does it have:
For the record it was also not deep-fried!
What's become of me? The Lunatic posting a healthy dish...I must have hit my head on something. This can't be right.
Yet it is. Want a closer look just to be sure?
Yup that's healthy!
And I have a brain scan scheduled for Monday so it never happens again!
- 1 pound of steak I used tenderloin but you can use any kind
- 1 ½ cups of jasmine rice
- 3 cups of water
- Salt to taste
- 2 large carrots sliced thin
- ¼ to ½ head of cauliflower cut up
- 2 cloves of elephant garlic chopped roughly (I wanted mine in big pieces)
- 2 to 3 tablespoons Ponzu Sauce more for rice if desired
- Chop all your veggies first and set aside.
- Slice up your meat thinly, season with some salt, and set aside. (meat tends to cook better when at room temperature so I usually leave mine out for 20 to 30 minutes before a stir fry or grilling)
- Now put your water in a pot and turn on high heat, bring to a boil.
- Once the water is at a boil you want to toss some salt in the water, then the rice.
- Cover the rice with a tight lid and simmer on low for 8 to 12 minutes.
- Now I use two pans for the next step, you can do it all in one pan if you like but that's a personal choice.
- In pan #1 spray with non stick spray, then drizzle with olive oil.
- In pan #2 (or wok) spray with non stick spray, then drizzle with olive oil.
- Bring both to a medium to high heat first before adding anything.
- In pan #1 add your carrots. Stir them around for a minute.
- In pan #2 (wok) add your meat. It will sizzle so be careful. Stir it around for a minute.
- In pan #1 add your cauliflower and stir around for about 2 to 3 minutes.
- In pan #2 (wok)keep stirring around your beef. It should be starting to brown nicely.
- In pan #1 add your garlic and stir around for a minute.
- In pan #2 (wok) add the ponzu sauce and stir around for a minute.
- In pan #1 add about 2 to 3 tablespoons of water, make sure heat is relatively high, but not scorching, now cover it for a few minutes. Good things will start to happen. Keep a close eye on it and stir if needed.
- In pan #2 your meat should be done or almost done. You want it brown but still soft. You can add more olive oil at any point if you find it drying. If it's done turn off heat and remove from burner.
- In pan #1, repeat the step of adding water again if veggies are not soft. They should be but if your pieces are bigger than mine you might want to do this a second time for about 2 to 3 minutes. It just steams the veggies a bit and soften them up.
- Now turn off the heat for your veggies.
- Your rice, steak and veggies should have all finished up relatively around the same time.
- Now you can either just pop it all into one large bowl and mix it up.
- You can do individual bowls and layer it which is how I like to do it.
- Add a scoop of rice in your bowl.
- Pop some veggies over top.
- Pop some meat over top of that.
- You can add a teaspoon or so of more ponzu if you like. I usually do.
- Serve with a big old healthy smile!
I hope you enjoyed this healthy post today. I'll be sure to have my head examined so it never happens again.
Did I mention is has no added sugar? *sigh*
Toodles and smoochies! xx
What a gorgeous, colorful stir-fry. I have been craving beef lately, so I'll have to try this!
It is so good. Your beef craving will thank you.

This looks really good, no nothing is my mantras these days...
With that being said, I still love Yes Everything and High Sugar Kim.....LOL
Thanks so much. I like to rock. I'll have to find some middle ground between this stuff and my sugar.

Yum! I love stir-frys, especially when steak is involved. And I like to cook my veggies separately too. Great minds think alike 🙂
Yah I am glad we think alike. Stir fries are just so wonderful. I forgot how much I love them.
Haha. I love your healthy recipe! I also love steak, so maybe I'm biased. Keep it up!
Thanks Dara. I love me some steak too. It just makes me happy.
Oh you did well my friend! What a fabulous recipe. Healthy and delicious. YUM!
Thanks so much. I really loved this. I snagged the leftovers before anyone else got them so you know I loved it.

Sounds and looks delicious. I love jasmine rice and such a healthy simple dish.
Thanks so much Nancy. I adore jasmine. That and basmati are my faves.

LOL! I was counting on your blog to get my virtual dessert! Just kidding - I'm just so happy to see a Japanese condiment here. I love ponzu and this citrus soy sauce goes well with the steak! Looks yummy!
Lol Nami. I know I freaked everyone out with this healthy post. It took me forever and a day to find Ponzu. I ended up bringing some home from Florida when we hit Whole Foods. Was just itching to try it out. It has such a nice flavor to it. I was really impressed.
