Sweet & Spicy Beef Meal Prep
What’s up fit foodies? Tired of eating chicken? Here’s a beef bowl recipe that you’ll surely love and perfectly made for the special diets that you’re into, sweet and spicy beef!
Most of the time we tend to meal prep chicken for its affordability, time efficiency, and protein and low carb content. But even if we have all the ways to prepare it, we still search for variety for our meal plans.
And in today’s meal prep recipe, korean beef or ground beef can be used. It may be leaner or fatty meat depending on what will suit your diets. But bear in mind that any substitution will result in changes to macronutrient content of this meal.
These korean beef bowls can also be for vegans. You can use crumbled tofu instead of meat and add veggies of your choice such as broccoli, spinach, carrots, zucchini, and some eggs for added nutrients and protein.
We all want comfort food that’s healthy. This recipe is very easy to make and nutritious. It is rich in protein, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, and vitamins A and C.
Another fact for this is you can make portions of this meal and put it on the fridge. So, you can just reheat it in the microwave and eat if you feel like it.

Ingredients for 4 servings
- 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce (OR low sodium tamari, liquid aminos)
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons fresh ginger
- 3 tablespoons sriracha
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- 4 tablespoons coconut sugar (OR brown sugar OR 1/2 teaspoon stevia in the raw)
- juice from 1/2 orange (or more if desired)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
- 12oz sugar snap peas
- olive oil spray
- 2 radicchio, chopped
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1 1/2 lb flank steak, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 2 cups cooked brown rice (OR steamed cauliflower rice)
- orange wedge
- sesame seeds
- fresh green onion, chopped
Mix together the ingredients for the sauce EXCEPT for the arrowroot. Season to taste with sriracha, soy and orange juice. Set aside along with arrowroot.
Set a large nonstick skillet on high heat. Once the pan is hot, add sugar snap peas. Continuously stir the peas so they don’t burn, but you will char the outside, about 3 minutes. Empty the peas from the skillet, then place the skillet back on the heat. Lightly spray with olive oil then add the chopped radicchio. While it cooks, squeeze in a little lemon juice. Continue to stir util the radicchio wilts, then remove from the skillet.
Place the skillet back on the heat and add the chopped beef. Sear the outside of the beef until you reach your desired readiness, about 4 to 8 minutes. Once you’ve reached your desired readiness of beef, reduce the heat of the skillet, and make a hole in the skillet.
Add the arrowroot to the sauce, mix well, then pour it into the skillet. As soon as the sauce begins to bubble and thicken, remove the skillet from the heat and immediately and continuously fold the beef in the sauce. Remove the beef from the skillet and then garnish with sesame seeds and green onion.
Assemble the meals – evenly divide the meat among 4 containers (or your number of servings), then add brown rice (or cauliflower rice), radicchio and sugar snap peas.
