Egg roll in a bowl is one of my favorite family dinners to make. It comes together so quickly and easily and the flavors are wonderfully bold.

Made with a lot of fresh veggies and ground pork, this is a super tasty and healthier alternative to your usual takeout. With flavors of ginger, garlic, and soy sauce with a touch of spice, this is one addictive recipe you won’t be able to get enough of!

Ingredients

  • Sesame oil: I like to use sesame oil to cook this dish as it has a nice nutty flavor. You can use vegetable or canola, but it won’t have the same taste.
  • Vegetables: Onion, coleslaw mix and carrots. You could also use broccoli slaw as an alternative to coleslaw.
  • Ground pork: I like to use lean ground pork for this recipe. the mild flavor of the pork works great with the aromatics.
  • Garlic and ginger: Use fresh cloves garlic and a teaspoon of ginger for the best flavor.
  • Water chestnuts: I love the crunchy texture of the water chestnuts in his recipe, and the have a mild nutty flavor.
  • Rice wine vinegar: This mild rice vinegar helps to balance out the salty flavors. White wine vinegar can be used in a pinch.
  • Low sodium soy sauce: This gives the dish a lovely umami salty flavor. You can use tamari if you have a gluten intolerance or coconut aminos for paleo, gluten-free, whole30, and keto versions.
  • Hoisin sauce: A rich and sweet sauce that adds a depth of flavor.
  • Sriracha: For a touch of spice.
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Garnish: Black sesame seeds and green onions
  • Sriracha mayo: Mayonnaise and sriracha

How long does it keep?

This recipe is great to enjoy straight away for a quick and easy weeknight dinner, but it’s also great for weekly meal prep. Once made, let the dish cool completely before transferring to an airtight container and store it in the fridge. It will keep well for up to 4 days and can be reheated in a skillet to serve.

Can you freeze it?

This is a great freezer meal! Cook up the whole recipe, but leave out the coleslaw mix as this can become soggy, then let it cool fully. Mix in the raw coleslaw mix and then freeze in freezer bags or containers. It will keep well for up to 3 months. Thaw it in the fridge overnight before reheating.

Can you make it with other ground meats?

Yes! I love to make this with pork, but other variations with ground meats like ground chicken, ground turkey, ground beef, or ground bison will work great too. It’s best to use lean or extra lean meats so that the final dish isn’t too greasy.

What do you serve it with?

I love to serve this low-carb egg roll in a bowl just by itself, it’s so hearty and filling. If you like, you could serve smaller portions over rice, cauliflower rice, or quinoa.

TIPS FROM NELI’S KITCHEN

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Make it spicier by adding in more sriracha, or leave it out if you prefer things milder.
  • I love the convenience of using a bagged slaw mix, but you could also shred a cabbage.
  • Chop the veggies small so that everything combines evenly.
  • For a more keto-friendly egg roll in a bowl, you can substitute soy sauce for coconut aminos.
