Today I’m sharing another family favorite recipe… Egg Roll in a Bowl!
I stumbled across this recipe when I was on Pinterest looking for low-carb meals. We’ve had it dozens of times and tweaked it to make it perfect for our family. This is a really money-saving meal as the cheap cabbage really bulks up the recipe!
Our kids even love this recipe, it is our 6 year old son’s very favorite dinner! Even your meat-loving hubby will love it, I promise, give it a try!
I usually buy ground pork or turkey when it’s on sale and bag it up and freeze it just for this recipe. The recipe also calls for sesame oil and I highly recommend that you run out and buy some just for this recipe, it is the KEY to the authentic flavor!
Without further ado – Here is our recipe for Egg Roll Stir-Fry:
Egg Roll In a Bowl
- A splash of sesame oil (yes you can substitute but it is so much better with sesame!)
- 1 lb. ground pork or turkey
- 1 medium head of cabbage sliced thin (approximately 4-6 cups)
- 2-3 shredded carrots
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 minced garlic cloves (I use garlic paste in a tube, no mess!)
- 1 tsp ground ginger (I use ginger paste in a tube also!)
- ¼ cup soy sauce
Mix garlic, ginger and soy sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.
Heat sesame oil in pan, add ground pork and cook until browned.
Lower heat and add chopped onion and cook until browned.
Add cabbage, carrots. Add in garlic and ginger mixture.
Cook for 5-7 minutes allowing cabbage cooks down, making sure to stir often.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Take off heat and serve hot.
