Keto Bulgogi Beef Sushi Rolls without rice is the best Paleo sushi rolls. These low carb and Whole30 sushi rolls are filled with cooked ground beef and crunchy vegetables in a sweet and savory sauce. You can make the ground beef without the sushi rolls for a simple Bulgogi ground beef bowl!
Prep: Season the beef with ingredients under ‘’beef seasonings”. Mix well and set aside in the fridge while preparing carrots, cucumber, lettuce, and pickles. Place the julienned cucumber over a large plate lined with paper towel and store in the fridge until ready to use.
Ground Beef Bulgogi: In a well-heated skillet, add 2 tbsp cooking fat and saute the marinated beef until they are cooked through (about 4 minutes). If use ground beef, break the meat with a wooden spoon and cook until they become finer pieces. Taste test to make seasoning adjustments. You want it to be slightly on the more savory side because we won’t season other ingredients in the sushi rolls. Once the beef is cooked through and break up to fiber pieces let it sit in the skillet to soak up more juice flavor. Set it aside to cool.
Make Sushi Rolls: Place 1 nori sheet (glossy side down) over a flat cutting board. Lay the beef down around ⅓ of the way up from the bottom of the seaweed, lay other ingredients down on top. Roll from the bottom while gently press down and push in to make the filling stay in. As you continue to roll, leave about half to one-inch top seam and spread a few dabs of water over to help hold the roll together. Set the roll seam side down over a large flat plate and continue with others.
To serve: Cut into 6 to 7 pieces with a clean sharp knife before serving and pair it with your favorite dipping sauce or my Paleo Thai peanut sauce.
To make ahead, best to finish kimbap rolls the next day. The nori sheets will become softer once exposed to moisture.Dipping sauce is optional. You can use any dipping sauce you like or use my Thai ‘’Peanut” sauce for a lovely sweet nutty flavor!No nori sheets? You can still enjoy this dish without the nori!
