One thing that my family orders often when we go out to Asian restaurants is the egg rolls. My kids devour those and so do I.

Today’s recipe for Egg Roll in a Bowl is a take on traditional egg rolls you find in a restaurant but lightens it up and creates a meal out of it. You will notice that the crispy wrapper for the egg roll is no where to be round. This dish uses a coleslaw mixture along with ground pork, vegetables and an Asian sauce. Cabbage is one of my favorite things to add to stir fry recipes. I also love using them in casseroles, like this Stuffed Cabbage Casserole. I love how easy this Egg Roll in a Bowl comes together, in under 30 minutes. Oh, and you only use one skillet

If you follow me on Facebook you know that from time to time I ask what my readers are making for dinner. I love sharing ideas and helping those that might be looking for something new to try. One recipe that my readers mentioned time and time again was Egg Roll in a Bowl. I knew I had to jump on the bandwagon and the rest is history.

  • Pick your protein. I used ground pork in this recipe but you can use ground chicken, turkey, beef or sausage. 
  • Load up on the vegetables. The star of this recipe is that bag of coleslaw and the vegetables if you ask me. I like to use bell peppers, carrots, red and green onion along with the cabbage mixture. Other vegetables that work great in this would be bok choy, pea pods, zucchini, cauliflower, green beans, celery, tomatoes and jalapeños. 
  • Create the Asian sauce. The sauce gives this dish the flavor you love from restaurants. When making this sauce I choose a low sodium soy sauce to help control the salt. I also like to add the red chili garlic sauce for some added spiciness, but you can skip that if you want. 
  • Add the greens. I like to add greens to recipes to help get vitamins in to my families diet. You can use kale, swiss chard, spinach, bok choy or any green you like.

Aside from just eating this stir-fry as is, there are a variety of other ways you can serve it. I am addicted to lettuce wraps, so when I make this stir-fry I almost always serve it alongside boston or bibb lettuce leaves. My kids love making lettuce wraps too, so it is is a fun family affair. 

If lettuce wraps aren’t your thing try serving it over brown or white rice or with a rice noodle. 


When I make this dish I like to add a side salad to go along with it. Since you are getting your protein and vegetables in this dish you really don’t need to add much else to you meal.
