Cauliflower and Ground Beef Hash – Low Carb Recipe

This cauliflower and ground beef hash is an easy low carb dinner that you can fit in any night of the week. And, boy, does it fill you up!

Cauliflower Ground Beef Hash - an easy, cheesy low carb dish!

When my husband is low carbing, easy go-to meals are a must for those days when you’re just too busy to fuss over dinner. This is one of those meals. It’s a no-fuss dish made with ground beef, cauliflower and lots of ooey gooey cheddar cheese. But the good thing is that you can dress it up or down depending on what you have in your pantry and fridge.

Toss in some jalapenos to spice it up. Add bacon, sour cream and green onions, and it’s a lot like a loaded baked potato (without all those bad carbs).

    I’ve been making this since I found it on your site a few months ago! It’s one of my faves! I add some Kielbasa Sausage to yield more servings and I like the flavor it adds to the dish. YUM!

  4. I made this last night and loved it. Husband who hates anything good for him also liked it. I used already riced cauliflower I found in the produce section and added some salsa. Thanks so much for the recipe!

    • Ha! You are so lucky, Debbie. My husband is the same way; however, he will not even taste it to see if he likes a dish or not. This has been going on for 30 years, although it was not low carb most of them. I always had a rule with my children, , , you have to at least taste a dish. If you absolutely don’t like it, you don’t have to eat it.

      • I also have this rule with my kids. Plus I give them foods that I don’t necessarily like, because they might like it and variety is good. My husband makes faces, but I can get him to try most things. Just not fish

    By the way, this is one of my favorite dishes. So delicious! I will definitely be making this lots of times. Thank you so much!

    • You’ll probably need to add some liquid and extend the cooking time… or at least blanche/steam the cauliflower for a few minutes before adding it.

    Ooh, this looks delicious! I’ve been doing keto for 5 months and get tired of just eating a piece of meat with veggies on the side, so this would be a great way to mix things up!
