Danielle Walker - AgainstAllGrain.com
- 1 pound Top Sirloin, cut into 1/2 –inch cubes
- 6 tablespoons coconut aminos*
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
- 1/3 cup avocado oil
- ½ small onion, minced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
- 1 medium carrot, diced
- 3 cups riced cauliflower
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ cup frozen peas
- 2 scallions, green tops only and chopped
*Gluten-free tamari sauce may be substituted for coconut aminos, but reduce the salt to ¼ teaspoon.
- Mix the Sirloin in a bowl with 1 tablespoon coconut aminos and 1 teaspoon sesame oil.
- Heat half of the avocado oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring continuously, for 2 minutes, until fragrant. Add the carrots and cook, stirring continuously 2 minutes more.
- Add the remaining oil and the riced cauliflower and continue cooking and stirring for 4 minutes longer. Transfer the cauliflower mixture to a plate and return the pan to the burner.
- Add the Sirloin to the pan and sear it for 30 seconds, then stir continuously until browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer the Sirloin to the plate with the cauliflower. Return the pan to the burner.
- Pour the eggs into the pan and stir to scramble them until they’re mostly cooked through. Pour the cauliflower mixture and Sirloin back into the pan and add the remaining sesame oil, coconut aminos, and salt. Stir in the peas, then turn off the heat. Top with chopped scallions and serve hot.

I am allergic to sesame seeds and sesame oil – is there anything that I could use to get the a similar nutty sesame flavour without the sesame oil?
Hi Andrea- Sesame Oil definitely has a specific flavor profile and there isn’t really anything out there that has the same taste. That being said you could try using another nut oil like walnut oil to replace the nutty richness you’d get from the sesame oil. It won’t taste the same but it will work! 🙂
I made this last night for dinner, and WOW! the Beef Fried “rice” was so amazing and tasty! I wouldn’t change anything. Thank you so much for this recipe! I love your healthy diet alternatives to GOOD food. It’s open up so much for me! (and even my husband loves the recipes!) Thank you!
So glad you liked it Jacquelyn!
I made a double batch and it is AMAZING! The ingredients blended perfectly and tasted delicious. Great recipe!
I made this the other night with the frozen TJs cauliflower and all the extra veggies I had in my fridge–so good! I had the leftovers for lunch today and it was equally as delicious. Thanks for making the food community better!
We made this for the first time last week and loved it so much we made it again two days later! It was a great opportunity to break in our new food processor with the cauliflower rice, too! Thankful for your recipes and can’t wait til my copy of Celebrations comes in!
You’re not bugging at all! 🙂 This is what I’m here for. I would suggest just omitting the eggs in this recipe. Unfortunately, there isn’t really anything else out there that isn’t eggs that is like a scrambled egg. If you’re allergic to chicken eggs, I suggest checking with your allergist about duck eggs. Because the proteins are different in chicken and duck eggs, many people with chicken egg allergies can tolerate duck eggs. Always check with your allergist first!
Actually there is an egg replacer out there that is very much just like an egg. I have tried it and was very surprised on how it had a very close taste and the texture was just like scrambled eggs. https://followyourheart.com/ I never got to bake with the sample I bought as my dog decided he wanted to try it out as well while I was not home. I will also add.. I am very new to this new lifestyle and have not gotten all the do and don’ts. So I wont say yes this is ‘approved’ or not. Just that I have used it 🙂
So interesting! I hadn’t heard of that yet.
In step 5, it says to add the remaining sesame oil and coconut aminos after scrambling the egg. If we omit the egg, do we still add the rest of the oil and aminos at the end, or omit that as well?
If you are omitting the egg, add the rest of aminos but you probably won’t need the oil. Hope that helps!
My husband is on an anti-yeast diet. He can’t eat carrots. Any ideas on what to substitute carrots for?
Any other vegetable would be great!
So happy to hear that!
someone cook this for me
I am allergic to coconut. Would Tamari be a good substitute and if so, equal parts?
Tamari is a great substitute. Just reduce the amount of salt in the recipe as Tamari is saltier then Coconut Aminos.
Yes, it would still work 🙂
Would this be considered okay if you are doing Whole 30? It seems to fit all the guidelines.
Peas aren’t allowed on Whole30, but you can easily leave them out.
I have to tell you, this recipe as a base has become a staple in our house (trying to keep low GI as much as possible) I mix up the proteins, Pork, Shrimp, Beef.. I mix up the veggies, Fantastic with asparagus, peppers, brocolli, whatever I have.. The fam Loves it! Making it this morning with beef, red peppers and onion.. YUMMY!
Thanks for sharing!!
Just made this for my first Whole30. It’s delicious! My husband had seconds. My husband, who until last night, had been a vegetarian for 15+ years. 🙂
Happy to hear!
This was delicious! Loved it!
So glad you enjoyed it!
Made a double batch for family dinner. Thought it “little” heavy on sesame oil, but still very good and the whole family approves. In the future I will try microwaving a bag of frozen peas and carrots and add that at the end to save knife time. Thank you for the recipe!
That’s a great idea! Thank you so much for sharing your feedback and I’m glad you enjoyed!
