What is Egg Roll in a Bowl?
Think of this recipe as an egg roll but without the wrapper. Egg rolls are referred to as such because the wrapper contains egg, but we are omitting the wrapper in this recipe to cut down the carbs. So this Asian inspired meal has all the flavor of an egg roll, but it is much healthier. Egg rolls are usually deep fried, and this keto recipe doesn’t require any oil.

- Meat: ground pork is my favorite, but ground beef, chicken, or turkey will also work.

How to Make Egg Roll in a Bowl
First, brown and drain the pork (or whatever meat you choose). Next, add the cabbage and carrots to the skillet and cook over medium heat. While that’s cooking, prepare your sauce. Add the garlic, soy sauce, whatever sweetener you choose, rice vinegar and chili garlic sauce to a jar. Secure the lid (make sure it’s tight!) and shake vigorously to ensure that everything is combined.
Add your sauce to the pan and toss so everything is covered. Cook, stirring regularly, for 5-6 minutes or until the cabbage is tender. Top with green onions, sesame seeds, crushed peanuts or red pepper flakes and serve!
