This California Burrito Bowl is a satisfying and delicious Whole30 compliant meal. It's all the flavors of a California Burrito using real whole food ingredients.



For the Steak

  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 1/2-1 jalapeno diced (I used 1 but use 1/2 if you don't want too much heat)
  • 1 1/2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • Juice of half a lime
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Potatoes

  • 2 small russet potatoes cut into wedges (or sweet potatoes)
  • avocado oil spray
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • guacamole
  • cilantro
  • salsa
  • jalapeno slices


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Add all the ingredients for the steak marinade in a freezer bag along with the meat. Seal bag and use hands to massage marinade into the steak. Allow to marinate for 30 minutes to an hour
  3. Place potatoes on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper and spray with avocado oil and add salt and pepper
  4. Bake for 35 minutes flipping halfway through
  5. While the potatoes are baking, pre-heat outdoor grill to medium-high
  6. Grill steak for 5-6 minutes on each side (longer if you prefer medium-well or well done). If cooking on the skillet, you will use the same cooking time.
  7. Remove steak from grill and allow to rest for five minutes before cutting into bite sized pieces
  8. Assemble your bowls by placing the potatoes at the bottom then adding your meat and the rest of your toppings
  9. Enjoy!
