Egg Roll in a Bowl is so packed with flavor! This low carb meal has an unmistakable egg roll flavor that everyone loves!
If you are fresh out of egg roll or wonton wrappers (or just want to cut some carbs) this is the perfect way to still satisfy your craving! Great for a crowd, try serving it as an entrée over white rice or noodles, or even zoodles!
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.
Egg roll in a bowl is totally customizable! Try switching it up with the following additions:
- NUTS: roasted, chopped peanuts or cashews.
- SAUCE: hoisin sauce, sriracha, or red chile paste.
How to Make Egg Roll in a Bowl
Who doesn’t love all-in-one bowls and this Chinese inspired dish is especially easy to make!
- Brown ground pork and drain the fat.
- Add onions whites, ginger, garlic and coleslaw mix.
- Saute until the slaw is tender and add soy sauce and sesame oil.
To serve, garnish with cilantro, the green portions of the onions, and extra sesame seeds.
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.

This recipe is soooo yummy! The combination of flavors is over-the-top amazing (didn’t change a thing). Definitely putting this on our meal rotation, it’s that good.
Do you crush or dice the garlic cloves, before adding to meat?
I mince the garlic. Enjoy Cynthia!
Can I use a head of cabbage and whole carrots shredded instead of a bag of coleslaw mix?
That should work just fine Sk. If you try it I would love to hear how it turns out!
this was good thanks
This was super easy and delicious! Used ground chicken and a little bit of bourbon sauce in it. Will definitely make again!

So Good!!! I did sub onions for shallots and added some Korean spicy garlic sauce and eel sauce. I also mixed ground turkey and ground sausage.
That sounds delicious, Becca! Thanks for sharing.
