January 15, 2019

So we’re giving you a break from all the salad recipes with this Food Hack of a Green Pastures favorite. The short-rib kimchi fried cauliflower rice is one of the few dishes that can trick many of us into replacing our rice, and leaves us feeling satisfied in the end.

Healthy-ish is this author’s favorite term.

While Green Pastures’ version is made with a sous vide egg and short-rib, we adapted the recipe so that you wouldn’t be in need of the sous vide machine. It may not be an exact replica, but with this recipe working with what’s available in most homes, we think it comes pretty close.
