These quick and easy burrito bowls are a great weeknight dinner. They’re really tasty, filling and nutritious. Feel free to switch out the salad ingredients according to your preferences.
Dice steak into 2cm / 0.8in cubes. Season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium-high. Add steak and stir fry for 2 minutes, until browned. Add cumin, oregano, garlic powder and paprika. Cook for 2 minutes. Stir in beans and tomatoes. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer gently while you prepare the rest of the meal.
PREPARE SERVING INGREDIENTS
Shred lettuce and roughly chop coriander. Dice tomatoes and capsicum. Thinly slice spring onions. Mash avocado and season with a little salt and pepper.
Microwave rice according to instructions on the packet.
ASSEMBLE AND SERVE
Season steak mixture with salt and pepper to taste. If sauce has dried out too much, add in a little more tomatoes or a splash of water.
Divide rice between individual serving bowls. Top with steak and beans, cheese, lettuce, tomato, capsicum and generous dollops of avocado and sour cream or yoghurt. Sprinkle coriander and spring onions over the top. Add a squeeze of lime juice if you like. Enjoy!
WINE MATCH: Try a Sangiovese.
GLUTEN-FREE OPTION: This meal is naturally gluten-free.
INGREDIENT SWAPS / NOTES: Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are a good alternative to steak. The lime/lime juice isn’t essential (I know how expensive they can be when not in season!).
STORING AND REHEATING: Rice and steak/beans can be stored together. If you like the cheese melted, add this too and then reheat in the microwave. Store remaining ingredients together and assemble burrito bowls just before serving.
