I made Jamaican Jerk Beef Bowls when I had very little left in the fridge and desperately needed to go grocery shopping. 

One thing I do love about this recipe is that you more than likely have what you need to make it.

Ingredients for Jamaican Jerk Beef Bowls 

  • 1 cup of rice (White or brown rice
  • 1 ¼ cup of vegetable stock (or water for rice)
  • 1 tablespoons avocado oil 
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 lb 97/3 lean ground beef
  • 3-4 tablespoons Jamaican Jerk seasoning
  • 1 habanero pepper (or scotch bonnet), finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 1 yellow bell pepper diced
  • 2 tablespoons of green onions
  • 1 avocado
  • Juice of one lime

Can you use Jerk seasoning on beef?

Jamaican Jerk Beef Bowl

Jerk Chicken is probably the most popular way you may see jerk seasoning used, but it’s good on most proteins and veggies too. 

It is pretty strong in flavor, so be prepared for it to take over your dish. 

Recipe for Jamaican Jerk Beef Bowls

Let your rice come to a boil. Once it reaches a boil, turn it down to low heat, and cover. Cook rice until fluffy and done (brown rice will be more dense). 

Add your oil to the pan and let it heat. 

Then, add garlic, lean ground beef, jerk seasoning, habanero and coconut aminos. Cook, being sure to stir thoroughly.

Add diced bell peppers and green onions toward the end. Cook 4-5 minutes. 

Add rice to your bowl, and top with lime juice, sliced avocado and more green onion.

Description

This recipe is not authentically Jamaican, but it does use some of my favorite staple spices, and it’s a flavorful recipe when you only have a few ingredients to work with.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup of rice (White or brown rice
  • 1 ¼ cup of vegetable stock (or water for rice)
  • 1 tablespoons avocado oil 
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced

  • 34 tablespoons Jamaican Jerk seasoning
  • 1 habanero pepper (or scotch bonnet), finely chopped, seeds and all
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 1 yellow bell pepper diced
  • 2 tablespoons of green onions
  • 1 avocado

  • Juice of one lime

Instructions

  1. Let your rice come to a boil. Once it reaches a boil, turn it down to low heat, and cover. Cook rice until fluffy and done (brown rice will be more dense). 
  2. Add your oil to the pan and let it heat. 
  3. Then, add garlic, lean ground beef, jerk seasoning, habanero and coconut aminos. Cook, being sure to stir thoroughly.

Notes

  • I love a ton of heat, but you can always dial it back by seeding your habanero. 
  • Avocado is not really Jamaican, but I love it for the cooling factor and a little bit of healthy fat.
