We cooked the steak in a pan so that we would get the tasty fond, the brown bits, and extra juices left behind to flavor the cauliflower "rice" with. See I learned that trick from Blue Apron!!! Fond is your Friend! LOL
For the cauliflower rice, it was a trying-something-new experience for me! I used a recipe I found on Pinterest for Roasted Cauliflower Rice from A Spicy Perspective Blog. After adding a teaspoon of oil and some onion to the pan with fond, and that being ready, I added the "rice" to it so that it would collect up all the flavor there! It turned out really well! Now I would NOT say that it is the same as rice because it's not in so many ways...I think it fails as rice. However, I loved the cauliflower rice itself and would make it for it's own yummy uniqueness but I would not use it the same as I would use rice. It would simply be a side dish instead.
