Deconstructed Egg Roll

Today I’m sharing another family favorite dinner recipe… Egg Roll in a Bowl! 

If you’re looking for an easy homemade semi-Chinese recipe I have the recipe for you. 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 (it has the best flavor for this recipe) Sometimes I use ground turkey instead when it’s on sale. 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! You can use soy sauce or Coconut Aminos if you have a gluten intolerance.
