Spicy Sriracha Bowls for dinner, sriracha bowls for lunch and sriracha bowls for breakfast – well, maybe not for breakfast, unless you added and egg on top, but seriously these poke bowls are jam packed with flavor and so good I can’t stop cooking and eating them like if it was my business.
I was probably one of the last people on earth to jump on the bowl bandwagon, I’m not sure if it was because I prefer to have a complete meal with sides or if the options that are around Pinterest seemed too healthy for my liking, but for one reason or another I never got a bowl craving. Until a couple of weeks ago that I found myself with a fridge full of leftovers and no time to cook, so I did what any other time-strapped person would do. Throw everything into a bowl and call it a dinner and the result was actually really good! So obviously now that I know how fast you can make a bowl and how good they were I had to try my hand at making one.
And oh my gosh it’s juts as good as you think it would be! The secret for me it’s topping everything with a good sauce, the sauce is what makes all the flavors taste cohesive (instead of a bunch of random things that are mingling together), it also makes the dish look really put together and drool worthy. I mean just look at that drizzle!
Best thing? The sauce takes around 20 seconds to put together, it’s just a bit of sriracha with a bit of mayonnaise and that’s it! It’s spicy, it’s creamy, and it’s jam-packed with all the flavor you crave on a busy day. That + cheddar, rice, and veggies and you would not want to eat anything else.
1 Lb. ahi tuna (or for me, 1Lb. ground beef – because I’m a wimp)
2 Tbsps sriracha sauce
1 Tsp onion powder
1 Tsp ground ginger
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Cup rice, cooked
1 Cup red peppers, sliced
¾ Cup black beans
¼ Cub cheddar cheese cubes
½ Zucchini, spiralized
¼ Cup red cabbage
2 Tbsps mayonnaise
In a large saucepan, cook the ground beef with the vegetable oil, salt, pepper, half the sriracha sauce, onion powder, and ginger.
Cook until desired doneness.
Steam the zucchini until tender. Set aside.
Fill the bowls with rice, ground beef, black beans, zucchini, red peppers, and cheddar cheese.
Mix the remaining sriracha sauce with the mayonnaise and drizzle it over the bowl.
Serve and enjoy.
