Low Carb Southwest Steak Burrito Bowls

By Alicia Ghio

Think of this meal as a deconstructed steak burrito. It’s got the steak, beans, corn and fresh salsa you’d expect, but it’s all placed on top of riced cauliflower instead of being wrapped in the flour tortilla with lots of rice. It’s healthy, low carb and full of flavor. Plus, it comes together in under 30 minutes.

  • One 4-oz. sirloin steak
