Meal prep recipe idea: Burrito bowls

June 22, 2016

I am going to start posting some meal prep recipe ideas. The recipes I add will be meals that are delicious, that I meal prep often myself, that are easy to make ahead of time, & that contain balanced macronutrients (a good ratio of protein, carbs and fats) so you can eat them as a complete and healthy meal.

Today I am posting my favourite burrito bowl. I use lean steak meat for this sometimes, but I also use chicken & pork as well. Pulled pork goes nicely with this recipe too, & any white fish is great to use as well. So keep that in mind, that you can really mix and match meats & poultry as lots go nicely with these flavours.


*For 4 servings

500g lean eye-fillet steaks (or 500g. meat/fish/poultry of your choice), marinated (overnight is best but 2 hours is fine) in 1 tbsp cumin, 1 tbsp paprika, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 clove garlic minced, rock salt and black pepper

2cups jasmine rice washed and cooked in rice cooker

1 can kidney beans

2 tomatoes chopped

1 packet coriander, chopped

1 red onion chopped

1 avocado, seed out, & cut into cubes

2 jalapeños sliced

Sauce for lime rice:

1/3 cup olive oil

juice from 3 limes squeezed

Salt & pepper


Once rice is cooked, pour in 1/2 of the sauce and mix it up well.

Divide the rice into 4 servings (or 4 containers if meal prepping)

Grill or pan fry the steak until medium (or however you like it) then allow it to rest for a few minutes, covered with foil

Meanwhile chop up your tomatoes, coriander, onion, jalapeños and avocado and divide them in 4 servings, add on top of the rice. *If you are doing this for meal prep and prefer to leave these separate, add another small container and put the salad mix in there.

Divide the can of kidney beans into four. Pour over the rice as well.

Thinly slice the steak across the grain, divide into 4 servings (150g each) and add on top of the rice and salad. Drizzle with remaining dressing.

Refrigerate for up to 4-5 days.

Macro breakdown:

*Note this recipe is for 4 servings but if you need to make your serving size smaller to hit your macros, you can always divide the recipe into 5.
