Beef Banh Mi Bowls
with Sriracha Mayo, Carrot, and Pickled Cucumber
FOOD TREND RIFF COMIN’ IN HOT. We took the traditional sandwich (bread, meat, chili, carrot, pickly things, mayonnaise, and magic), lost the bread (been eating soooo many stress carbs), and threw it in our favorite eating vessel, THE BOWL. Once we looked at said bowl, filled with saucy beef, carrot, pickles, and spicy mayo, we threw back in some carbs because...life can be stressful. Hello, lime rice!

Meanwhile, wash and dry all produce. Peel and finely chop garlic. Zest and quarter lime. Trim and halve cucumber lengthwise; slice crosswise into thin half-moons. Halve, peel, and medium dice onion. Trim, peel, and grate carrot.
In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, as much sriracha as you’d like, a pinch of garlic, and a squeeze of lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, combine cucumber, ¼ tsp sugar (½ tsp for 4 servings), a pinch of salt, and juice from 2 lime wedges.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 4-5 minutes. Add beef, remaining garlic, and 2 tsp sugar (4 tsp for 4 servings).
