What’s in Egg Roll in a Bowl

A delicious array of Asian-inspired ingredients that come together in a jiffy!

GROUND PORK The classic egg roll filling is made with ground pork, but feel free to substitute it for beef or chicken.  For a vegetarian option try doubling up on the veggies or using ground tofu!

VEGGIES We love the addition of the coleslaw mix but for some extra heartiness and your own favorite veggies from celery to cauliflower, water chestnuts or mini corn!

I keep this low carb but if you crave a little crunch, add some fried wonton strips or baked wonton chips.

Leftovers

Not only is this great as leftovers, I often intentionally double the recipe so I can freeze servings for lunches. It’s SO good.

For best results, put leftover egg roll in a bowl in a container with a tight-fitting lid. It should keep about three days but it also freezes well if needed.

To reheat, simply pop it in the microwave, give it a good stir and refresh the flavors with a dash of soy sauce, red chile paste (for added heat!) and salt and pepper.

  1. Pretty good! I had the main ingredients lying around. Took less than 15 min to cook and clean up! I used thin sliced boneless pork chops as that’s what i had. Only change was to add some horseradish and bit of sugar.4 stars

  2. Love this idea. We love egg rolls so I can’t wait to try it. i will add a bit more fresh veggies to bump our intake and serve it along with fried wonton. I have a ton of your recipes and love your site. It is my go to when searching for something new and different. Thanks!!!!5 stars

    1. Hi Steph, you can freeze this dish by placing it in an airtight container in the freezer, or you can place in individual Ziploc bags and lay flat in the freezer for quick lunches!

  3. Delicious and SO easy to prepare! I had only powdered ginger – I was generous with it – maybe 1 tsp or more (unlike the equivalents I saw online). Sesame seed oil I believe was very important for the flavor, too, so don’t omit that. Also, it’s filling without being a heavy meal.5 stars

  4. I made this on 15 Jul, made as written, easy and fast to put together, minimal and common ingredients, and I and the family loved it! One family member who does not care for cooked cabbage, had two servings. Worthy of 10 stars, highly recommended. Thank you, Holly, for another great recipe.5 stars

  5. Great recipe! I changed it up slightly by doing half ground chicken thigh/half ground pork, shiitake mushrooms and I seasoned the meat with nomnompaleo’s magic mushroom powder. Trader Joe’s has bags of shredded green cabbage fairly cheap and it saves a few minutes. Thanks for the recipe!5 stars

    1. Once again it’s Spend With Pennies for the win! Made this tonight with fried rice and it was great! We have fresh cabbage from the garden so I spent a little more time to prep my veggies but it was well worth it. When I told my husband the recipe is from the same lady I’ve been getting so many new recipes from lately he said to ask you if you’re a chef. Lol as always… thank you!5 stars
