Egg Roll in a Bowl

 

This simple recipe takes just about 30 minutes from start to finish. That’s not even the best part, for me. I love that it can be made with just one skillet!

 

One-pan meals (like this Cajun Shrimp) really add to the meal being quick and easy. Lots of pots, pans, and tools needed make for a much longer clean-up process—and that time is just as valuable as the prepping/cooking time.

 

ingredients for making an egg roll in a bowl

 

 

Ingredients:

1¼ lb. pork sausage
3 cups green cabbage, shredded
1 medium carrot, shredded
2 tbsp green onions, chopped
¼ cup water
½ tbsp fresh ginger, finely minced
2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp tamari
½ tsp garlic powder
Salt & pepper, to taste

Optional garnish:

Toasted sesame seeds

Variation:

Ground turkey can be substituted for pork sausage for an even healthier version.

 

You can use a wok, but I find that a large frying pan will work out just as well.

How to Make an Egg Roll in a Bowl

 

 

Chopping cabbage for egg roll in a bowl

 

You’ll want to begin by thinly shredding the cabbage and the carrots and finely chopping the green onions and the ginger.

 

Cooking and crumbling sausage

 

Heat the wok or frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, breaking it up into tiny pieces as it cooks. Once the sausage is no longer pink, remove from heat and carefully drain any grease from the pan.

 

Be sure to wipe off any excess fat that may drip down the side of the pan.

Return the pan to the heat and add the water. Lower the temperature to medium heat and add in the shredded cabbage, carrots, garlic powder, sesame oil, ginger, and green onions.

 

Season with salt & pepper, to taste. I know some people don’t like when a recipe calls for “to taste”, but honestly, it is a personal preference. Add as much or as little salt and pepper as you desire.

 

Continue to cook, stirring continuously, until the cabbage wilts and the carrot softens.

 

Add in the rice vinegar and tamari, and continue to stir. Cook another few minutes until heated through. Don’t have tamari on hand? Whole Foods has free two-hour delivery for Amazon Prime members.

 

Remove the wok from the heat and transfer the stir fry to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, if desired.

You can serve it just as it is or on top of a bed of rice. If you are keeping this low-carb and Keto, be sure to make it cauliflower rice.
