  1. Cauliflower rice - (Skip if made ahead for Monday.) Pulse florets in a food processor until broken up into ‘rice’-sized bits. Cook rice in one of two ways: 1) Microwave for 4 to 5 minutes and then fold in butter (portion for cauliflower rice). Season with some salt and pepper; or 2) Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add butter (portion for cauliflower rice). Saute cauliflower in heated butter for ~5 minutes, until tender but still crunchy. Season to taste with some salt and pepper. Watch this video for the full how-to on cauliflower rice. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  2. Garlic - Thinly slice. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  3. Make aminos-lime butter - Chop green onions. Soften butter (portion for steak) in microwave for ~10 seconds. Mash in aminos (portion for steak), lime juice, and green onions. If you like spice, add in a few drops of your favorite hot sauce (not on ingredients list). (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  4. Bok choy - Halve bok choy lengthwise and then rinse thoroughly in cold water in case any dirt got trapped in the stems. Drain and then chop. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)

  5. Steak - Season steak with some salt and pepper and tenderize with a fork. (Can be done up to 1 day ahead)
