Ingredients

Marinated Kale:

Korean BBQ Sauce:

Kimchi:

Pickled Jalapeños:

Pickled Onions:

Soy Aioli:

Directions

Special equipment:
grill and grill basket
  1. Place the vinegar, liquid aminos, garlic, ginger, oyster sauce, sriracha and fish sauce in a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl, add the beef, pork and cilantro and mix thoroughly. Cover and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. When the meat is ready, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the meat and cook, breaking it up with a spatula, until completely cooked through. Remove from the heat and keep warm.
  3. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring often, until softened. Remove from the heat and keep warm.
  4. Preheat a grill to medium high with a grill basket set on the grate. Add the Marinated Kale and grill.
  5. Spoon the rice into 4 bowls, top with some Korean BBQ Sauce, then form “nests” on top with the cooked meat, cooked mushrooms and grilled kale. Add portions of Kimchi, Pickled Jalapeños and Pickled Onions, arranging them in neat little nests and contrasting colors. Fan the avocado over the center of the bowls, then place an egg on top, but slightly offset. Finish by drizzling Soy Aioli over the entire dish and sprinkle with scallions.

Marinated Kale:

Yield: 1 quart
  1. Combine the olive oil, ginger, liquid aminos, lemon juice, sesame oil, white pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a blender and blend until thoroughly combined. Toss the marinade with the kale in a large bowl. If not using right away, cover and refrigerate.
