Bowl meals are life for me. Justin doesn’t really get it, but he goes along with it. This Paleo, Whole30 + Keto beef shawarma bowl is uniquely flavored and full of all the goods – seasoned beef, spinach, cauliflower rice, cucumbers, red onion and tomatoes all topped with a creamy, dairy-free tzatziki sauce!
Quick + Easy
Usually our recipes have pretty minimal prep, and we try to make lots of them ready in about 30 minutes. This recipe is still about a 30 minute meal, but instead of most the time being spent cooking, it’s spent prepping. It’s easy stuff though. Slice up your beef and marinate it, and then prep the rest of the veggies. The cooking will only take about 7-10 minutes on your stove top. Done and done!
The Creamy, Dairy-Free Sauce
If you’re not yet a sauce person, it’s time to get on board! We loooveee sauces, and I especially love them with my bowl meals! They just add so much flavor and fun to a meal. The tzatziki sauce for this beef shawarma bowl can be thrown together while the beef is cooking in your food processor. We just use the recipe for the sauce from our Greek Meatballs. You could also just use some greek yogurt as well if you want to keep it extra simple.
What Is It About A Bowl?
Like I said at the beginning of this post, bowl meals are everything for me. When I was younger I really didn’t like it when my food touched, and I’d eat each part of the meal separately, saving my favorite for last. Then, I grew up and started eating real food, and now I like everything in a bowl so I can get a little bit everything in each bite. All the flavors and textures come together, and it’s a simple thing that makes me really quite happy! Justin doesn’t totally get my infatuation with bowl meals. He jokes that if it were entirely up to me, our site would just be all bowl meals….but would that really be so bad?! 😉

Beef Shawarma Bowl (Paleo, Whole30 + Keto)
For the beef:
- 1.5 lbs flank or skirt steak, cut into this strips
- 1/4 cup avocado oil
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp garam masala
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
For the rest of the bowls:
- 4 cups spinach, (or other greens of choice)
- 2 cups cauliflower rice, (or sub white rice if not Whole30)
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- Sea salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 cup cucumber, chopped
- 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
- Tzatziki sauce, (the sauce from our Greek Meatballs recipe)
- Slice and marinate beef first. Place sliced beef in a shallow dish and combine with avocado oil and seasonings. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
- Prep the rest of the ingredients for the bowl as noted above.
- After beef has marinated, saute in a large skillet over medium heat for about 7-10 minutes, until cooked to your liking.
- Cook cauliflower rice while beef is cooking. In a medium skillet over medium heat, add avocado oil and cauliflower rice. Cook until tender and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Once beef is done, assemble bowls. Start with a base of greens, and add cauliflower rice and other veggies. Finish with a drizzle of tzatziki sauce over everything. Enjoy!
I made this recipe and because of diet I substituted black olives for the tomatoes and added sliced avocado. Outstanding. I have enough of the sauce that I’m making the Greek meatballs tonight.
Glad you liked this one and hope you enjoy the meatballs too :).
This was a hit with my hubby. I liked it too but I would prefer less oil in the recipe since we used flank steak it allready had enough fat to it: we served ours over salad & I made the sauce with sourcream & we used it as a dressing. I will definitely make this again with fresh pita bread & some feta. The flavours taste authentic & is restaurant quality. Great job :).
Thanks for the review and we are glad you guys enjoyed the recipe!
