How to Create the Perfect Steak Burrito Bowl

Cooking the steak and preparing the rice are the main steps you need to take before assembling your delectable bowl. Follow these simple instructions:

  2. Cook the steak: Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned steak to the skillet and cook, stirring as needed, until it reaches your desired level of doneness.
