Bowls are way past “having a moment.” They’ve become a pillar of our lunches and dinners. Why? It’s simple: everything’s better in a bowl! (Nice knowing you, plates.) But seriously, the customizable combo of carbs, protein, veggies, and a drizzle of delicious sauce cannot be denied. True to form, this rendition is fully loaded. Buttery rice is topped with beef that’s glazed in a sweet and savory sesame-soy sauce, plus sautéed carrots and a drizzle of creamy, spicy Sriracha mayo. One bite will have you totally bowled over.

Sweet Soy Glaze(ContainsSoy, Wheat)
White Wine Vinegar
• Wash and dry produce. • In a small pot, combine rice, 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4 servings), and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve. • Meanwhile, trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. • In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise with Sriracha to taste. Stir in water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
• Heat half the sesame oil (you’ll use the rest in the next step) in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add carrots and scallion whites; cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 1-2 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of sugar. • Transfer to a second small bowl and cover to keep warm.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in pan used for carrots over medium-high heat. Add beef*; cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned, 3-5 minutes. TIP: If there’s excess grease in your pan, carefully pour it out. • Stir in half the vinegar (all for 4 servings), remaining sesame oil, 2½ TBSP sweet soy glaze (5 TBSP for 4), and ½ tsp sugar (1 tsp for 4). Bring to a simmer and cook until sauce has thickened and beef is cooked through, 2-3 minutes. • Remove from heat. Taste and season with salt and pepper if desired.
• Fluff rice with a fork and stir in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings); season with salt and pepper. • Divide rice between bowls; top with carrot mixture and sesame soy beef. Drizzle with Sriracha mayo and sprinkle with scallion greens. Serve.
