Our egg roll in a bowl is prepared in one large pan which is awesome for easy cleanup! Serve it with some homemade wonton chips for extra crunch.

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

Coconut aminos are a great substitution for soy sauce.
