Basil Beef Bowls

For this recipe, you will either blanch the green beans in boiling water until they are soft or steam them. This dish is very flavorful and makes fantastic leftovers, so I highly recommend doubling the recipe.

As I’ve shared many times, my husband is a very picky eater, and he loved this dish. He’s not a big fan of vegetables, but green beans and bell peppers are the two things he will eat. I served this on white rice for him and cauliflower rice for me.
