This is the ultimate Simple Bachelor Food Prep meal. It’s extremely simple and the only thing you really have to cook is the beef.
- 90/10 Ground Beef or leaner. Some grocery stores or farmers markets will carry 95/5. Suggest buying 2+ lbs so it can last more than one meal.
- Jasmine rice. Other varieties of white are perfectly fine as well. Prepare multiple cups of white rice in your rice cooker. If you’re short on time or in a pinch you the microwavable white rice packs are a great fallback option.
- Trader Joe’s Harvest Hodgepodge frozen vegetables. Honestly any variety of frozen mixed vegetable will suffice.
- Green Onions
- 1/2 tablespoon Sesame Seeds
- Black Pepper Grinder
- Pink Himalayan Sea Salt (any sea salt variation works)
- Goya Adobo
- Quickly coat the pan with a bit of spray olive oil or avocado oil. Empty the contents of the frozen vegetables into one pan on the stove top. Cover and simmer on medium heat until they soften. Grind some sea salt on top of the vegetables while they are heating. If you opt to use regular olive, avocado, or coconut oil rather than spray, please note you will have more fat to add into the macros below.
- While the vegetables are heating, empty all of the ground beef into another pan on the stove top and cook on medium to high heat. Generously season the beef with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and Goya Adobo. Cook until all beef is a consistent brown color, drain any excess fat from the pan.
- Chop up your green onion while the two pans are cooking.
BUILDING THE BOWL:
- Rice goes in first. ~150 grams depending on your how many carbohydrates you’re having each day. You can easily scale this up or down to meet your requirements.
- Beef next. I recommend doing 125+ grams of beef depending on how easily it is for you to reach your daily protein targets and how many meals you are eating.
- Mixed vegetables. ~174 grams based on two servings from the Harvest Hodgepodge label. The more the better when it comes to vegetables really. No need to be shy, load them up.
- Green onions are really just a garnish, add as much or as little as you like. Macros and calories are negligible.
- 1/2 tablespoon of Sesame Seeds on top.
