15-minute KETO Greek Bowls (beef or lamb; amazing flavors!!)
Simple ingredients with WOW flavors!! ;) When you taste this Greek-spiced meat and the herbal Spearmint Cream Sauce that gets poured over the top, you may not believe the amazing flavor explosion that went off in your mouth. Enjoy! (Super fast to make and healthy!)

Spearmint Cream Sauce

Ground Beef or Lamb Mixture and Assembly
Heat medium size skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter. When melted, add ground beef or lamb, sea salt, dried oregano and onion powder.
Cook over high heat 5 minutes, breaking up meat into small pieces with your spatula the whole time.
When meat is mostly cooked, turn off heat, but leave pan on burner. Move meat to outer edges so the middle of the pan is empty. Add the remaining 2 Tablespoons butter.
While it melts, add, on top of it, the one drop lemon or lemongrass essential oil (or lemon rind) and 5 grinds of pepper. Stir the butter into the meat.
Fill each bowl with hot cauliflower rice, or have guests/family each make their own. Top rice with meat, cucumbers, tomatoes, red bell pepper, thin lemon triangles or larger wedges for squeezing, olives, spearmint cream sauce and fresh mint. Garnish with oregano.
