    In my kitchen, a Beef Bowl is a quick, easy and healthy weeknight meal. Seasoned skirt steak is lightly seared in a skillet while sweet potato cubes bake in the oven. It all comes together in a big bowl lined with spinach and topped with cool, creamy avocado, leafy cilantro and a garlic-jalapeno “dressing”.

    You can add a quality extra virgin olive oil if you like, but I usually think it is fine without it. If you do prefer a traditional dressing, your can also make my Roasted Jalapeno and Onion Dressing. Superb on grilled veggies and steak salads.

    This Beef Bowl is gluten-free and full of “whole” flavors and is ready in under 30 minutes. It literally has ALL of the veggies I need in one day. I love spicy foods, which are also linked to increased metabolism and bonus, it takes fabulous!

    I do have to give credit where credit is due. I originally tried a version of this recipe from Terra’s Kitchen. I reviewed their delivery service and loved it!

    We had their Southwestern Steak Bowl on the 3rd night and I craved the robust flavors for the next week. I headed to the grocery store, put my own spin on the original and now I have my own version of beef in a bowl.

    While these robust flavors may not be kid-friendly, they will be any adult’s best friend. Make a Beef Bowl one of your new favorite weeknight meals! Sometimes I even get crazy and make mine with Jalapeno Cornbread Mini Muffins. Yummy!

    Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins- Mexican cornbread muffins, make full or mini. Simple to make, no Jiffy mix needed. These jalapeno cornbread muffins are great with chili or to make cornbread stuffing! www.savoryexperiments.com
