  • 1 cup jasmine rice cooked according to package instructions, or 3 cups cauliflower rice
  • 1 8 oz  filet mignon or top sirloin cut into 1" cubes
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups broccolini or broccoli broken into quite small florets (I prefer broccolini because it's more tender)
  • 1 medium carrot peeled and thinly sliced on the diagonal (1/8" thick)
  • 2 shallots peeled and quartered
  • 1/2 a yellow bell pepper,  thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons your choice of toasted peanut oil, toasted sesame oil or olive oil
  • roasted salted cashews (to taste)

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. If using traditional rice, start cooking according to package instructions. If using cauliflower rice, you'll start cooking that later:)

  2. While rice cooks prep all vegetables and cut meat into 1" cubes, season meat with salt and pepper and set aside

  3. Prep all vegetables

  4. Heat a large pan on med/high heat, add 2 tablespoons oil to pan, heat oil, then add shallots and cook on medium heat, stirring frequently for 5 minutes

  5. If using cauliflower rice, place another pan on medium high heat, add olive oil and cook cauliflower rice for 5-6 minutes while finishing the rest of the meal

  6. Add broccoli, peppers, carrots and meat to pan with shallots. Cook for about 8 minutes stirring frequently

  7. While veggies and meat cook, whisk together chili paste, mustard and honey

  8. When veggies are soft and meat is medium rare add cashews and sauce to pan, stir until sauce covers all meat and veggies. Take off heat. If using cauliflower rice, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper

  9. Place rice or cauliflower rice into two bowls, spoon meat and veggies over rice, serve
