This egg roll in a bowl dish is fun and easy to make. All the flavor of an egg roll deconstructed into one pot bowl meal.
Who doesn't love egg rolls? I've never made them but when I saw this deconstructed egg roll in a bowl idea I had to try it.
I'm a big fan of burrito bowls and other yummy dishes that come as a complete dish in a bowl so this is right up my alley.
How to Make an Eggroll in a Bowl
I started with ground pork like most eggrolls but this could easily be made with ground beef, chicken, or turkey. However, you may need a little oil to brown the meat if it's extra lean.
Cabbage is the main ingredient. I bought a savoy cabbage and sliced it with a large knife. And, I bought the carrots already cut into sticks. However, you could use a bag of coleslaw mix to make things even easier.
Make it your own with other stir fry veggies such as bok choy, broccoli slaw, cauliflower rice, or green onions.
For that wonderful taste of Asian flavors, I used fresh garlic, fresh ginger, low-sodium soy sauce, and sesame oil.
You can eat this dish as is for a low carb option. Or, serve it over your favorite sticky rice, brown rice, or ramen noodles.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days then reheat in the microwave.
It was really delicious and one that I felt good about eating. An easy and healthy "in a bowl" dish.
