Healthy and satisfying meal good from AM to PM

I LOVE skirt steak. It’s reasonably priced, great for Asian flavored recipes, and super versatile for many stir-fry dishes.

You can tell by how many people love my Easy Paleo Beef With Broccoli recipe. My favorite cut for this dish? Skirt steak :))

Whenever I see skirt steak available in my local store, I buy extra, divide it into individual meal servings, and store in the freezer for later use.

A flavor kick to your taste bud – Paleo Filipino Skirt Steak Cauliflower Fried Rice

This Filipino-inspired meal is a perfect balance between savory and citrusy. The lime juice and tomato sauce make it uniquely distinct for Filipino flavor. It’s a wonderful meal perfect for breakfast, lunch, and supper.

I lightly score the surface of the skirt steak (I.e. criss cross cut) to allow for better marination. If the skirt steak you purchase is very thin cut (I.e. less than ¼-inch thick), skip the scoring (criss-cross cut) step.

In the recipe below, I also share my quick and simple low carb cauliflower fried rice. The fried rice recipe could be a stand-alone piece so be sure to SAVE it for later !

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. skirt steak, best silver skin removed (ask the butcher to do this)
  • 2 large fried eggs, optional

Steak seasonings: (best marinate overnight)

  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • ½ tsp coarse salt
  • Quarter of one whole lime juice
  • 2 large garlic cloves, crushed
  • Black pepper to taste

Simple cauliflower fried rice:

  • 2 cups cauliflower rice
  • 2-3 bulbs scallions, chopped, separate white and green parts
  • 2 small garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp ginger grated
  • 2 tsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Coarse salt to taste

Quick tomato sauce:

  • 1 medium ripe tomato, finely chopped
  • 1 ½ tbsp shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp flat parsley, finely chopped
  • Lime juice to taste

Instructions

  • Prepare the steak: use a sharp knife to shallow slice/score the steak in a small criss-cross cut pattern to enable better marinating.* Marinate the steak overnight with ingredients under “steak seasonings” or at least 1-2 hours in the fridge.
  • Grill/pan-sear steak: Add 1 tbsp ghee to a well heated cast iron. Shake excess marinade from the steak and cook each side for 2-3 minutes per side for medium to medium-rare, depending on the thickness of the cut, basting the steak with ghee and steak juices. Set aside to rest.
  • Cauliflower rice: Add 1 tbsp ghee or avocado oil to a heated skillet, when hot lower the heat to medium, add white parts of chopped scallions and finely chopped garlic. Season with a small pinch of salt. Saute until fragrant (about 10 seconds). Add 2 cups cauli rice, grated ginger, coconut aminos, and sesame oil. Season with a small pinch of salt. Stir fry quickly to cook the cauli rice to a soft (but not mushy) texture. Turn off the heat and stir-in green parts of scallion.
  • Serve: Slice steak against the grain. Serve it with cauliflower rice, fried egg, and top with tomato sauce.

Notes

*lightly score the skirt steak will enable better marination. If the skirt steak you purchase is very thin cut (I.e. less than ¼-inch thick), skip the scoring (cross-cross cut) step.
