Ingredients for Egg Roll in a Bowl
- Ground pork or beef – You can use either pork or beef in this deconstructed egg roll bowl!
- Coleslaw – Make sure you clean and dry the coleslaw lettuce mixture before using it in this dish.
- Egg – Allow an egg to come to room temperature before whisking it so that it is easier to mix up.
- Minced garlic cloves – Freshly minced garlic will produce the best flavor, but you can also buy a jar of minced garlic and use that!
- Green onions – Diced green onions are the perfect touch for this egg roll in a bowl. Dice them small enough so that each bite gets a bit of green onion in it.
- Soy sauce – Looking to keep things low in sodium? Use low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos in place of regular soy sauce.
- Ginger powder – It may sound a little weird to include ginger in a recipe like this, but it is a very common seasoning in many Asian food dishes. It blends beautifully with all of the other flavors here!
- Sriracha – Use whatever your favorite sriracha sauce is.
- Sesame oil – I do not recommend substituting this ingredient for something else. Sesame oil has a very specific type of flavor that this dish will need.
How to Make Egg Roll in a Bowl
- Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook ground pork and beef until fully browned. It will take about 6-8 minutes to full cook all pink out of the meat.
- Once cooked, drain off the grease. Then, add minced garlic to the pan and sauté for 30 seconds until fragrant.
- Add the coleslaw mix to the pan, then pour the soy sauce over the top and add ground ginger. Sauté the mixture until the coleslaw has wilted.
- Then, make a well in the center of the meat mixture and add the whisked egg. Scramble the egg in the hole over a low heat. Then, mix the scrambled egg throughout the whole dish.
- Drizzle sesame oil over the top and sprinkle with green onions. Add a finishing touch of sriracha if desired.
- Serve immediately with rice or cauliflower rice.
What to Serve with Egg Roll in a Bowl
Though this easy dinner can be served on its own, here’s a few great things to pair it with! Serve this yummy dish over rice, chow mein noodles, or cauliflower rice.
Even though there’s protein in egg roll bowls, it can still be used as a side dish alongside things like air fryer chicken breast. Air fryer Hawaiian shrimp and orange chicken would also go great with egg roll in a bowl!
How to Store Leftover Egg Roll in a Bowl
FRIDGE: Store leftovers in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, pop it in the microwave or on the stove top in a skillet with a bit of oil.
FREEZER: This dish actually freezes very well too! Place it in an airtight container and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Allow it to thaw overnight in the fridge and then reheat in the microwave or one the stove top.
Add an extra drizzle of sesame oil or sriracha sauce to add some extra moisture back into the dish after reheating!
What can I add into egg roll in a bowl?
You can make so many different variations of this dish! Dice up some mushrooms and cook them when you add the coleslaw mixture. Add a little crunch with some cashews or peanuts, or even sliced almonds.
This dish would be delicious with lots of extra veggies. Broccoli, cauliflower, diced bell peppers, and even some bean sprouts would pair beautifully with all of the other flavors and ingredients in this dish.
- Don’t overcook your cabbage! Once it begins to wilt, it is pretty much done. You want a slight crunch to it still, especially if you plan to save leftovers.
- Save some calories by subbing the meat for ground turkey or ground chicken.
- Top each bowl with some sesame seeds to add extra crunch and a little nutty flavor.
Busy evenings don’t have to mean a trip through the drive thru! Make an easy, healthy, and delicious meal in just minutes with this recipe.
