Are you on the ‘Making a Murderer’ train yet? I swear it’s the only thing people are talking about at my gym right now. There’s no chance of entering a conversation that doesn’t utter the words “Steven Avery.” Luckily, I’m on the train so I have something to connect with people about. Sad, but true.

Let’s talk about this. Because this sh*t is so confusing. So SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t seen the whole season yet, turn away. Honestly, after I finished the season, I started looking up Buzzfeed articles and reading about other suspects. You finish the season and you’re just not satisfied. There’s just no way to feel 100% about him killing anyone. WHO TO BELIEVE. It felt like so many pieces were left out the entire time.

And then you’re left there, on the couch, wondering how many other people are in jail for a crime they didn’t commit. That’s a frightening thought.

You know what I hated the most during all 10 episodes? The prosecutor. His voice is one of the creepiest voices I’ve ever heard. On more than one occasion, I mentioned to my fiancé that he is totally molester. No doubt in my mind. And BOOM, he gets fired for sending gross text messages to a minor that was from a domestic abuse case he was working on. How gross is he? How can you trust someone like that? Ew. He’s so gross.

This has become a really intense blog post. I tend to not talk about things that upset people. Like religion or politics. I leave that sh*t alone. But I still upset people by cussing. Can’t win it all. But ‘Making a Murderer’ has to be talked about it. Do you think he did it? Let’s chat this over.

  • Yield: 3-4 1x



For the bulgogi

  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 3 tablespoons freshly minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 pear, grated
  • 1 tablespoon coconut vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds flank or hanger steak, thinly sliced against the grain

For the spicy pickled cucumbers

  • 1 cucumber, sliced very thin with mandolin
  • 2 tablespoons coconut vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chili sauce or sriracha
  • 1/2 teaspoon raw honey
  • pinch of salt

For the rice bowls

  • 1 batch of cauliflower rice
  • 34 eggs
  • black sesame seeds, to garnish
  • green onions, sliced, to garnish
  • sriracha mayo: 1/2 cup paleo mayo + 2 tablespoons chili sauce or sriracha


  1. Mix together all ingredients for the bulgogi and place marinade in a shallow dish. Add the thinly sliced beef, cover and place in the fridge overnight or at least for 4 hours.
  2. Remove beef from fridge 30 minutes before cooking. While the beef comes up in temperature, place cucumber along with the rest of the pickle liquid in a jar, shake, then place in the fridge for about 1 hour.
  3. Place a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of ghee or coconut oil then remove then beef from the marinade and cook beef in a single layer, sprinkle with salt and once browned and slightly crispy, cook on other side. About 2 minutes per side. Continue until all beef is cooked.
  4. While beef is cooking, make cauliflower rice.
  5. Lastly, place a small sauté pan over low heat, add 1 tablespoon of ghee or coconut oil, and crack each egg into the pan. Cook low and slow until white are cooked through but yolks are still runny.
  6. Make each bowl: cauliflower rice, beef bulgogi, egg, pickled cucumbers, sriracha mayo, green onions and sesame seeds.

    Damn girl! We just finished this and it was hands down-straight up one of THE BEST things the hubs and I have ever eaten! I am totally putting that Sriracha Mayo on pretty much everything.

  2. Rachel says:

    My 19 year old son was skeptical when I handed him his Bulgogi bowl, but then he absolutely raved about this food! Told me it’s a winner and to make it again soon. It was so good. Thank you!

    1. juli says:

      awesome!! thanks for trying it out!

  3. Jessica says:

    I made this the other night and it was freaking delicious! That marinade is amazing! As a bonus, it was easier and quicker than I expected. For anyone thinking they don’t have time to let it marinate… my steak only marinated for about 2 hours but it was still super flavorful and tender because it was sliced so thin. Leftovers were also awesome (scrambled with eggs, for breakfast!) Thanks Juli!!!

  4. Laura says:

    Juli – I’ve been a huge fan of every recipe I’ve tried from your site but I mixed this up on Monday night with the intent to get two dinners out of it… I wound up cooking the rest of the beef for breakfast this morning because it was SO GOOD! Thank you for sharing 🙂

    (4 months late to this post, however I’m with you on Steven Avery – there’s something off with someone who could kill an animal like that.)

  5. Sonya says:

    OMG!! This is so damn good!!! We frequent a Korean restaurant that delivers to our favorite bar and this is by far our favorite dish. I know it’s full of stuff I shouldn’t have so finding this alternative is an answer to prayer! I’ve shared it on my page and our local foodies/recipes page. 🙂

    1. juli says:

      awesome!! glad you liked it, sonya!

  6. Jessica says:

    Holy. Crap. Balls!!! This is AMAZING!!!

    I made this tonight for dinner with my husband and it was definitely a hit. So much so that I’m even going to make it again for family dinner this weekend with my parents.

    I’m an Asian food lover but since developing some food sensitivities it’s been a struggle to find yummy options that are close to the traditional. Well you freaking nailed it girly!

    You’re my recipe hero! Thank you!!
