  • coconut oil or tallow for cooking everything

Black Beans

  • 1/2 onion minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 cups black beans cooked or canned
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice


  • 2 steaks I used ribeye
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Peppers & Onions

  • 1 yellow bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 onion thinly sliced


  • 2 cups riced cauliflower prepared (see link in recipe for homemade, or use frozen)


For the beans.

  • Heat skillet over medium heat. Add cooking fat along with onions. Saute until onions caramelized.
  • Add in garlic, cumin, and oregano and saute for about a minute, until spiced are fragrant.
  • Add in beans and cook until they're coated, or heated through if they were canned.
  • Remove from the skillet and cover until ready to use.
  • When ready to use, squeeze lime juice over the beans and stir it in.
  • After cooking the beans, add more cooking fat for the steak.

For the meat.

  • Prepare the marinade and add to a bag along with steaks (make sure they're thawed). Massage around for a few minutes, then let set for an hour+.
  • Heat skillet over medium, along with cooking fat. Add steaks and cook on each side for 3-5 minutes, depending on how thick they are.
  • Remove from pan and let rest on a plate for 5 minutes before cutting.

For the peppers & onions.

  • After removing the steak, add in the peppers and onions.
  • Saute in steak juices until tender (just a few minutes).
  • While steak is resting and peppers & onions are cooking, prepare cauli-rice in a separate skillet.

Putting it together:

  • Into your bowl, layer the following in order:
    (1) cauli-rice (2) black beans (3) meat (4) peppers & onions (5) fresh chopped veggies
  • Top it all with sour cream and shredded cheese.
