Egg Roll in a Bowl is a quick and easy, one dish meal that comes together in less than 30 minutes. It’s packed full of ground pork, onions, cabbage, carrots, and savory spices. It makes the perfect weeknight dinner.

This egg roll in a bowl recipe has been on my to-do for the longest time. These were really popular back a couple of years ago, and I made a couple of different versions for John and Kale.

However, I got sidetracked and instead of making egg roll in a bowl for the blog, I ended up making other dishes like homemade egg rolls and crunchy Asian salad.

So, I guess it’s about time I get to this one! This is a great recipe for busy weeknight dinners.

It’s prepared in one large pan which is awesome for easy cleanup! Serve it with some homemade wonton chips for extra crunch.

I’ll include the instructions on how to make the wonton chips in the recipe card. That recipe is courtesy of Ashley from I Don’t Have Time for That.

How to Make Egg Roll in a Bowl

Start by heating a large pan (at least a 12-inch pan or larger) over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the sesame oil, ground pork, and onions.

Break up the pork into small pieces, and continue to cook until the pork is no longer pink. If there is a lot of grease in the pan, drain if off and return the meat to the pan.

Stir in the rice vinegar, garlic, hoisin sauce, ginger, soy sauce, coleslaw mix, and carrots. If all of the coleslaw mix doesn’t fit into the pan at once, add it a little at a time.

It will wilt and reduce in size as it cooks. Mix the ingredients in the with the ground pork. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Continue to cook until the cabbage is wilted to the desired texture. Remove from heat, garnish with green onions, and serve hot!

Can I use something other than ground pork?

Yes, use whatever meat you like. Ground turkey, chicken, beef, or sausage make great options.

Is there something else to use in place of soy sauce?

Coconut aminos are a great substitution for soy sauce.

The sodium content is slightly different, so be sure to taste the egg roll bowl as your cooking and salt accordingly.

Easy, tasty recipe. Thanks for sharing. (You’re missing the amount of hoisin sauce in the ingredient list - made without- and still fantastic)
