Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pound (455 g) ground round or other very lean ground beef
  2. 1 to 2 tablespoons (15 to 30 ml) oil
  3. head cauliflower
  4. green pepper, chopped
  5. medium onion, chopped
  6. 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  7. 1 can (14 ounces, or 410 g) diced tomatoes with green chilies
  8. teaspoon ground cumin
  9. 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  10. cup (60 ml) water

Cooking Instructions

In a large skillet, start browning the beef in the oil over medium-high heat.

Meanwhile, run the cauliflower through the shredding blade of a food processor.

Put the cauliflower in a microwavable casserole dish, add a tablespoon or two (15 to 30 ml) of water, cover, and microwave on high for just 5 minutes.

Go back to the beef and start breaking it up.

When you've got just a little fat in the pan, add the pepper and onion and saute them, too.

When all the pink is gone from the meat, add the garlic, tomatoes, cumin, Worcestershire sauce, and water and bring the whole thing to a simmer.

Stir in the cauliflower "rice" cover, and let the whole thing simmer for 3 to 5 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
