Whenever I make Asian food I get compliments and excitement from the crowds: that is, from my family. This Keto, Whole30, Paleo & GAPS Asian Beef Bowl will be met by enthusiasm by your crowds too. But best of all: 15 minutes! So it’s a quick one, yet you’ll gain fans. That’s the power of the bowl, filled with something good: Asian flavors, clean ingredients, satisfying all round! (You’ll also love my 15-minute Keto Greek Bowl here.)

Keto, Whole30, GAPS, Paleo

What about you? Are you looking for a great 15-minute dinner? Do you enjoy bowls and beef bowls like we do? For me, eating a savory dinner from a bowl, preferably with a spoon, is ideal at the end of the day. I’m tired often, (with lots of carpooling kids!), and I just want to snuggle in. As far as cooking, we usually do simple gourmet: whole foods, prepared beautifully but easily. This fits the bill.

And it’s nourishing. I know my family’s going to get great protein and good fiber. It’s low-carb, too, for Keto and GAPS. If you’re Whole30, GAPS or Paleo and need more carbs, it’s easy to add toasted sesame oil roasted carrots,  a sweet potato (Whole30/Paleo) or winter squash (GAPS) on the side.

Whole30 friends, there is one variation in this recipe for you: no stevia, which I use for a little sweetness. The dish tastes great without, so just a heads up.

Chopstick diet friends, just kidding: That’s all of you, isn’t it? If you need COOL chopsticks for yourself or a gift, check out these! They’ll last and last. Pretty cool. (Don’t know how to use chopsticks?! Don’t miss out on this life-pleasure! Here’s a lovely video showing you how!)

If you’re Paleo/GAPS, you’ll also love my Chinese Beef Short Ribs!! (Find them here.) They’re made in the slow-cooker or Instant Pot (=little work; yum, yum, yum!)

Now … Slow down the minutes

I’m all for fast prep when it comes to cooking. But once you have this baby made, and the bowl is cradled in your hand, remember to be in parasympathetic mode: that means to rest while you eat. Our body heals itself when we rest. It nourishes and digests when we rest. It puts its energy into renewal. Take a deep breath. Don’t talk about anything stressful. And really smell, then taste each bite.

In that spirit, here’s a Chinese proverb I like:

Enjoy yourself. It’s later than you think.


Beneath these green mountains where spring rules the year, the ​irbarbutus and loquat in season appear, And feasting on lychee – 300 a day, I shouldn’t mind staying eternally here. (Su Shih, Chinese poet)

Enjoy your bowl of goodness!
