What You Need to Make Egg Roll in a Bowl

  • Large Skillet – Use a big one. It’s all going into one pot.
  • Ground Pork – Lean ground pork is my choice of meat for this dish.
  • Coleslaw Mix – Don’t get the bag with the dressing, just the coleslaw blend. Coleslaw is shredded cabbage. Wondering if cabbage is keto? Check out this article.
  • Bean Sprouts (optional) – They add a few carbs but add lots of nutrition and a tasty crunch.
  • Sesame Oil
  • Soy Sauce – Or coconut aminos if you’re doing strict keto.

Ground Pork or Sausage?

Some versions of this recipe say to use sausage. However, I think that the ground pork gives a much more authentic flavor, and you’re keeping the ingredients simple.

Many commercial brands of sausage are loaded with seasonings, sodium, and even hidden starches. Keep it simple; keep it pure. Go with ground pork.

Another bonus to ground pork is that pound-for-pound, it is cheaper than sausage.

How to Make Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl

It doesn’t get much easier than this:

  1. Brown the pork in your large skillet, along with the sesame oil.
  2. Add the coconut aminos and colesalw mix.
  3. Stir for 3-4 minutes or until the cabbage is cooked.
  4. Dig in!

Yup, it’s that easy!

Chef’s Tips

  • Ground chicken or turkey can be used in place of the ground pork.
  • Jazz it up with 1-2 tbsp of finely chopped ginger and a clove of garlic.
  • Chinese 5-Spice powder will add a blast of flavor, too, but only use about 1/2 tsp. It’s powerful.
  • Garnish your dish with some sliced green onions and sesame seeds.

What to Serve with Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl

This really is the perfect one-skillet meal, but if you want sides, go ahead and make some Cauliflower Rice. For my non-keto family, I make regular rice. If I need a bit more protein, I’ll nibble on a few Lemon Pepper Dry-Rub Wings,

Is Egg Roll in a Bowl Freezer-Friendly?

Weellll… I won’t say no, but the nature of cabbage is to go limp and give off liquid when freezing and thawing. This dish is definitely at its best when eaten fresh.

If you do freeze it, invest in a vacuum sealer. That’ll give this dish the best protection in the freezer. These devices suck all the air out of the bag (heavy-duty freezer-safe plastic) and protect the food.

The vacuum sealers pay for themselves in a short time by eliminating food waste. I love mine!
