Egg Roll in a Bowl is one of my all time favorite dinners. But things changed a bit once I went keto.
We used to do Chinese takeout at least one a week. I am not fond of everything on a Chinese menu. For instance I am not a fan of anything made with tofu. However I aways loved my egg rolls. But unfortunately egg rolls are not keto. Therefore, I needed to find a solution to my egg roll cravings.
As a result, I came up with this is a quick and easy keto go to meal that is absolutely delicious. It is loaded with Asian flavor and ready in under 30 minutes! In addition it is dairy-free and gluten-free as well. Finally, it is very low carb with only 5.05g of net carbs per serving.
Egg Roll in a Bowl is a hit with the family
The first time I made it was so excited to try it but no one else in my house was. Meanwhile I started to chop and mince my ingredients. In addition the amazing flavors of the dish began to fill the air in our house. Meanwhile, they continued to insist they were not interested in this new dish.
However, by the time I sat down to eat everyone wanted to try it! Then my husband started saying “that smells good”. Of course, if my husband was going to try it our son was willing to give it a go as well. After they polished off their “taste test” all I heard was “oh that’s good I will have a little more”. In addition, our son said “can I take some to school for lunch tomorrow”.
To sum up, they were totally on board with this new dish by the time all was said and done.Egg Roll in a Bowl is a quick and easy #keto recipe that is absolutely delicious. And, this recipe only need one pan. That means less time doing dishes! Click To Tweet
Why Egg Roll in a Bowl is an amazing recipe
Now, let me start off my saying some people may find the coconut aminos to be expensive at first but I can assure you they are well worth it to have on hand. In addition to this recipe, you can use the coconut aminos to flavor lots of other foods and a little goes a long way.
Also this recipe is great to double or triple the amounts to have enough for a large family or to use as a meal prep item! As a result you spend less time cooking during the week. For example, if there are only two of you needing to pack meals, this recipe gives you each 3 meals!
Finally, and quite possibly the best part, this recipe only need one pan. That means less time doing dishes. Because of that you have more free time to do other things. Certainly as a busy parent this is a major plus for any recipe.
As a result of the ease of this recipe in addition to my family’s stamp of approval, you can be sure this recipe will have a regular spot on my weekly meal plans.
- 1 ¼ lb. spicy bulk pork sausage
- ¼ cup water
- 3 cups green cabbage, shredded
- 1 orange bell pepper, sliced
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- 1 Tbsp avocado oil
- ½ Tbsp fresh ginger, finely minced
- 2 Tbsp green onions, chopped
- 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 Tbsp coconut aminos or tamari
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- 1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- Heat a wok or large high-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Then, add sausage and cook, breaking the meat into small pieces as it cooks, for approximately 5-6 minutes. Once sausage is no longer pink, remove from heat and carefully drain excess grease from pan.
- Then return skillet to heat. Next, add water and scrape up brown bits from the bottom of the pan with a spatula. Then, reduce heat to medium and add shredded cabbage, carrots, garlic powder, sesame oil, ginger, and green onions. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and cook, stirring frequently, until the cabbage wilts and the carrot softens, approximately 4-5 minutes.
- Finally, add rice vinegar and coconut aminos and stir to combine. Cook another 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat and transfer to a serving platter or bowl.
- Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
Safety Tip: After draining grease from the meat, wipe off any excess fat that drips down the side of the pan before returning to burner.
