Have you ever used beef jerky in a dish before? Yah, me neither, until recently. Usually we eat it as a snack, but when OBERTO sent me some of their all natural beef jerky flavors, I was determined to use them in recipes. Determined I say!! Well, let me be vain for just a second here….cause I friggin’ hit the nail in the head with this fried rice recipe. It tastes just like the real deal and I’m pretty proud of myself. Guys, it’s kinda hard to “healthify” things like pork fried rice without it tasting nasty. So yah, I’m gonna pat myself on the back for sure!!
If you like Chinese food, I highly suggest making this. I’ve had a huge craving for it lately, and this satisfied every bone in my body!! The jerky gives it that extra pizzaz and really is the star of the show. You can use any flavor of jerky you’d like, but I suggest Oberto’s teriyaki flavor!!
- 1/2 lb ground pork
- 8-10 pieces of Oberto teriyaki jerky, roughly cut
- 1 head of cauliflower, riced
- 2 eggs
- 2 carrots, diced
- 2 green onions, sliced
- 1 tsp fish sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 tbl coconut aminos
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tbl oil or ghee
- In a large skillet, heat up 1 tbl oil or ghee.
- Once hot add in ground pork and cook about 5-7 minutes, or until cooked through, Remove from pan and set aside.
- In same skillet, add in your diced carrots and garlic. Mix around until soft and garlic is very fragrant.
- Crack your two eggs in and scramble them up.
- Add in your riced cauliflower and combine everything. Add another tablespoon of oil or ghee over the mixture. (You can either buy it pre-packaged or I just use a chopper to chop the florets up into rice size)
- Let cauliflower cook for 5-10 min, stirring occasionally, until cooked.
- Add the pork back into the pan, stir, then add in your coconut aminos, fish sauce, and half of the sliced green onions.
- Cook until everything is completely heated through then add in your beef jerky pieces.
- Place into a serving bowl and garnish with green onion and sprinkle with some salt and pepper
If you are currently on a whole30, you will need to omit the jerky or use “biltong” for it! My kids keep asking me to make the food with the jerky, and it has only been a couple of days since we I made this fried cauli-rice. I served with some Asian tacos (which will be up on the blog next week) but it’s cauli-rice…..that stuff pretty much goes with anything!!
NOTE: Oberto uses all natural ingredients in their jerky and it’s delicious. But it does have a little sugar in it (hence why it is not whole30 or paleo)
