Eggroll in a Bowl

I’m a huge fan of “bowls” like this one, that combine many flavors into one cohesive dish. The idea is to include all different types of flavors and textures, which makes the bowl incredibly satisfying. This Egg Roll in a Bowl combination is one of the best.

I think I could eat this bowl multiple times per week and never get sick of it. You won’t even miss the addition of a carb, like rice or noodles, in this dish.

The crunch from the cabbage and carrots, along with the filling protein of the sausage, makes for a very satisfy meal. You can use ground beef, chicken or turkey in this Egg Roll Bowl, as well, if you don’t want to use pork. The results are very much the same.

Ingredients You’ll Need

If you love classic egg rolls then you already know these great ingredients. There really is no secret here. The only thing you won’t find is the egg roll wrapper!

  • Pork sausage – we used spicy sausage but use your favorite. You could also use ground chicken, turkey or beef here.
  • Green cabbage – shredded. If you are short on time grab a bag of shredded coleslaw mix.
  • Carrot – shredded
  • Garlic powder
  • Sesame oil – don’t skip this ingredient, it adds so much flavor.
  • Ginger – fresh, finely minced
  • Green onion – chopped
  • Soy sauce
  • Rice vinegar
  • Salt and pepper – to taste

How to Make Egg Roll in a Bowl

One of the best parts of this recipe is that you can cook it in just one pot. All you need is a large skillet and you’re ready to go.

Step one is to brown the sausage and break it up into bite-sized pieces. Make sure you leave the sausage on the heat long enough to develop some crispy brown bits. That will add excellent flavor to this dish.

If there is a lot of excess grease from the sausage, drain most of it before moving to the next step. A little extra grease will help add crispiness to the cabbage, so don’t remove it all!

Throw in the rest of the ingredients, minus the soy sauce and vinegar. You want to get a good sizzle going on the cabbage, so leave it alone in the pan for a while before stirring. This will help brown the cabbage and add lots of flavor.

Once the cabbage is nice and tender, about 10-15 minutes, add the soy sauce and vinegar and stir it all up really well. Give the sauce a few minutes to do its thing, then remove from the heat and serve. See how easy that is!

Serving Suggestions

This dish is fantastic all on its own. There’s no need to serve it alongside anything else. That’s the joy of the bowl. However, you can also add cauliflower rice to bulk it up a bit, if you want. I also add Sriracha over the top of the bowl before serving it, to give it a little extra heat.
