// ★★★★★ Review //

“Wow! I’m amazed. I could seriously eat this every single day! It’s so good!!!! Thank you so much! I did leave out the sambal oelek because I don’t care for spicy. This dish is seriously what my taste buds have been missing!” Rachel

Ingredients measured out to make an Egg Roll in a Bowl: coleslaw mix, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, sambal or sriracha, ground turkey, onion, coconut aminos/tamari/soy sauce and green onions.

Ingredients Needed for Egg Roll In a Bowl

You only need 9 simple ingredients to whip up this delicious recipe. Here’s what you need:

  • ground turkey or ground chicken I prefer to use turkey or chicken in this recipe because they’re leaner, but you can also use a lean ground beef or ground pork.
  • yellow onion – we’re sautéing the onion with the ginger and garlic before adding the coleslaw mix to create a flavorful, savory base to this dish.
  • fresh garlic – fresh garlic is key here for optimal flavor. Of course you can take a shortcut method and buy peeled garlic, jarred minced garlic or frozen crushed garlic cubes. I just wouldn’t recommend swapping the fresh garlic for garlic powder.
  • fresh ginger fresh ginger gives this dish the best flavor. Mince the ginger yourself or buy frozen ginger cubes for easier prep. I always have these in the freezer.
  • coleslaw mix – store-bought coleslaw mix is what makes this recipe so easy! Feel free to also use broccoli slaw if that’s all you can find. You can totally shred your own cabbage and carrots if you prefer, but using the bagged mix saves a ton of time.
  • toasted sesame oil this adds a nutty flavor to the dish. I highly recommend using sesame oil but in pinch you can use another option in your pantry like olive oil or avocado oil.
  • low sodium soy sauce – this adds robust flavor and saltiness to the dish. As I mention in the recipe you can use low-sodium tamari for a gluten-free option or coconut aminos. I often use the coconut aminos because it’s gluten-free and I love that it has a hint of sweetness.
  • sriracha sauce or sambal oelek either of these ingredients will add a nice hint of spice and flavor. If you don’t want the dish to be spicy at all, simply omit it! If you like more flavor and spice, you can always add more or add a dash of red pepper flakes.
  • green onions – for serving, green onions add a nice freshness and added flavor to this dish.

How to Make Egg Roll in a Bowl

This recipe is seriously so easy to make and requires just one skillet. Here’s how to make it:

Cook meat: Brown ground turkey or chicken in a large skillet. Break meat into smaller pieces as it cooks using a wooden spoon or spatula and season liberally with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5-6 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl or plate.

Cook veggies: In the same skillet, over medium heat, add sesame oil. Once hot, add onion, garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, about 3-5 minutes. Add coleslaw mix into the skillet. Toss and add soy sauce and sriracha or sambal. Cook for another 3-5 minutes or until cabbage is tender.

Combine + taste: Add cooked meat back to the pan and toss to combine. Taste and add more soy sauce or sriracha, if needed.

Serve: Portion mixture into bowls and top with green onions, sesame seeds and cilantro. Serve with additional soy sauce and sriracha, if desired.

Brittany’s Tips

  • Bagged coleslaw mix makes this recipe so easy to whip up, but some other convenience items that save time include jarred minced garlic or frozen crushed garlic cubes, as well as, frozen crushed ginger! You could even buy pre-chopped onion if you really want to save time.
  • The recipe serves 3, but if we’re really hungry we can eat the whole meal between 2 people, especially if we don’t serve it with cauliflower rice. If you’re serving a family of 4 or want leftovers for lunch the next day, I would definitely double the recipe.

Does an Egg Roll Have Eggs in it?

I keep getting this question so here we go! Egg rolls get their name from the outer layer, which is a fried wrapper that has egg in the dough so typically eggs aren’t used in the stuffing of egg rolls.

That said, you can totally scramble an egg into this mixture if you’d like! It will add more protein and a bit of egg flavor. Once the ground meat and cabbage is combined, create a well in the center of the skillet, add an egg and scramble until the egg is cooked through, then plate and serve.

Recipe Variations

  • Want to add more vegetables? Go for it! Some ideas include frozen peas or corn, chopped mushrooms  and/or finely sliced bell peppers. Pick your favorites and add them in. Just know that if you add a ton more veggies, you’ll probably want to add more soy sauce and sriracha to keep the dish just as flavorful.
  • Use a different protein – I prefer to use a lean protein like ground turkey or chicken, but you can use ground pork or ground beef if that’s what you have on hand. For a vegetarian option, you could add scrambled eggs, tofu or tempeh instead of ground meat.

How to Serve

This dish is definitely a full meal, but if you want to add different toppings or serve it with a grain go for it. Here are some ideas:

  • With toppings: I like keeping the toppings for this bowl fresh and simple with green onions, cilantro, sesame seeds and sriracha. If you’re an aioli lover you can also mix sriracha with mayo for a spicy aioli to top this meal off with something creamy! If you want something crunchy try serving this dish topped with chopped peanuts or almonds.
  • Over rice: You can totally serve the egg roll in a bowl straight up, but if you’re looking for more volume and veggies (without extra carbs) feel free to cook up some cauliflower rice and serve the egg roll in a bowl over top! You can also serve it over regular rice or even quinoa if you prefer.

How to Meal Prep

You can totally meal prep this recipe by making it as is or doubling it for more servings. Cook it completely and store individual servings in airtight containers. It’s an easy meal to bring to work or heat up for a busy weeknight. If I’m being honest, I’ve also eaten it cold, straight from the fridge. It’s that good!

How to Store Leftovers

This egg roll in a bowl recipe stores really well in the fridge! It should last 4-5 days in the refrigerator when stored in an airtight container. When you’re ready to enjoy, heat it up over the stovetop or in the microwave.

Servings: 3

Ingredients  

  • 1 lb ground turkey or chicken

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated or minced
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 12-14 oz package coleslaw mix
  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce, tamari or coconut aminos
  • 1-2 teaspoons sriracha or sambal oelek

Notes

  • Protein – Feel free to swap the ground turkey or chicken with ground pork or ground beef instead if you prefer. For a vegan option use tempeh or tofu.
  • Coleslaw – Feel free to use packaged broccoli slaw instead of coleslaw if you prefer. You can also cut your own cabbage and use shredded carrots if you want. 
  • Add an egg – This recipe doesn’t call for eggs, but if you want to amp up the protein you can add one in. Once the cabbage is cooked and ground meat is added back to the pan, create a well in the center of the skillet, add an egg and scramble until the egg is cooked through, then plate and serve. 
  • Serving size – The recipe serves 3, but if we’re really hungry we can eat the whole meal between 2 people, especially if we don’t serve it with cauliflower rice. If you’re serving a family of 4 or want leftovers for lunch the next day, I would definitely double the recipe.

    This recipe is soooooo dang good! It was easy to make and reheated well throughout the week for meal prep. Definitely going to be making this a few times a month going forward. I used white rice this time and added a red bell pepper. I am excited to try with cauliflower rice and to throw in other veggies as well! Thanks for the awesome recipe Brittany! 🙂

    I made this for dinner tonight and both my husband and I thought it was delicious. We didn’t serve it with cauliflower rice. I have to tell you we tried someone else’s version quite some time ago and didn’t care for it, so as I was searching your website for recipes and saw you saying it was one of your favorite low carb recipes I was hesitant to give it a try. Not only was it low carb, heart healthy, inexpensive and quick to make it was delicious. The list of your recipes we make over and over Keeps growing. Thank you for sharing all your recipes with us.

    1. Hi Kristy – I don’t think I would recommend freezing this recipe. The cabbage mixture texture won’t be the same after freezing. Hope you give this a try and enjoy!

    Really LOVED this! My daughter and husband loved it too. Nice and light and it makes a good size portion with the cabbage mix in there.

        Great base recipe to make as is or use as your own. I like to use double the meat and I use regular slaw mix and trader Joe’s broccoli kale slaw. I add it all together. I also add edamame usually. Can also use pork instead of chicken or turkey. I season the meat with garlic salt instead of regular salt.

        1. YUM! I love this so much! I am so glad you are loving this recipe and are able to adjust it so easily. Thanks for sharing your review & star rating, I truly appreciate it!

    This recipe was fantastic!! Final product tasted exactly like an egg roll. It’s hard to find flavorful low-carb recipes, but this one does the trick!

    This is one of my favorite recipes! So easy, healthy, and delicious! I did add the egg this time and it was good! I also added the cauliflower rice in right when the onions were about done. The rice had more flavor and was apart of the recipe.

    1. Hey Kristy, so glad you loved this recipe! Thanks for making it. I haven’t tried freezing this before, but I would imagine it would freeze just fine if stored in a freezer-safe container. Let me know how it turns out if you try freezing it.

    1. Hi, Lynne! There is typically no egg in the filling for an egg roll. This is what I found in a quick google search: “Many people assume egg rolls (most specifically egg roll wrappers) include egg, which is why it’s named so, but it often does not contain any egg whatsoever. It’s been thought egg rolls were influenced by a specific recipe called Dan Gun or simply “egg roll” recipe from the Chinese American Cookbook. I hope that helps!

    1. Woo! Love to hear that, Lori! So glad this recipe was a hit. Thank you so much for coming back to leave a review and star rating, it means so much to me!

    Delicious, easy, healthy egg roll bowl!! This will definitely be added into our regular rotation- and its husband approved 🙂 didn’t have sambal oelek in stock so used siracha and it worked perfectly. I served over brown rice and it was delicious and filling! Thank you EBF for the best meals always!!

    Made this for my family tonight and everyone ate it! I didn’t have a single kid refuse to eat it. I used low sodium soy sauce in place of the other sauces. I also added chopped, cooked mushrooms and served it with rice. Thanks!

  21. Such a delicious and easy meal! I made it two weeks in a row, and could seriously have this weekly and be a happy camper. It comes together so easily and makes enough for one leftover lunch the next day! I put it over Trader Joe’s stir fry cauliflower rice and it’s to die for!

    Very nice idea and quick to put together… I did it with low sodium soy sauce; next time I’d be curious to try it with coconut aminos to see if the taste is different and maybe play with the spices a bit. I will do it again!

    Why am I not surprised that this recipe is so yummy? I love the simplicity of it and how flavorful it is. It MADE my Tuesday night! I didn’t even have everything to make it to a “T” and it was still delicious. Thanks – again – for another great option to add to my regularly meal plans.

The whole thing, without prepping ahead of time, came together in 30 minutes. Winner! Trying another recipe tomorrow, can’t wait. I’ve been telling everyone I know about this website especially my vegetarian and vegan friends who are all looking for something delish and new to add to their menu plan. Thanks Brittany!

    1. Woo! This makes me so happy to hear, Brittney! I really appreciate you coming back to leave a comment and star rating as well!

  31. I was looking forward to making this recipe because it looks so good. Unfortunately, something in the recipe (perhaps the coconut aminos) did not agree with me and I had stomach cramps for two days with an insatiable need for water.

    1. So sorry to hear that, Kathleen! I wonder what it could have been. If you don’t have issues with soy you could sub in the coconut aminos for tamari or soy sauce in the future.

    We LOVE this meal! It has made it into our weekly rotation for over a month. Our 14- month old loves it too— we just add the sambal oelek at the table instead of into the main dish! This is quick, easy, flavorful, and worth making again and again!

    I used ground turkey and I chopped up cabbage and shredded my own carrots. Even with that little extra work it was a super easy meal.
    I didn’t have sambal oelek, but definitely want to add that in next time. The sriracha on top added a really good flavor.

    It checks all of the boxes.Delicious, healthy, easy and comes together quickly.
    Another new family favorite. Even with my 5 y/o who isn’t the biggest fan of meat, but he loved it with ground chicken. Thank you EBF!

    This was so good! We didn’t have sambal oelek paste so we added chili powder and extra garlic while cooking the ground turkey and added extra sriracha. Will be making this often!

    This was the easiest dish to make – took less than 20 min and I had food on the table for the family. Even my pickiest eater gobbled this up. We served it with rice and didn’t use green onions since we didn’t have them on hand. Still amazing!

    This was hands down one of the best recipes I’ve made in a long time. Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s not full of flavor!! I love spicy so I added a chopped jalapeño when I cooked the onions. I can’t wait for leftovers for dinner tonight!!!

    So delish!! I added 2 eggs to it while the cabbage mixture was cooking and also added some celery I had in the Frig… so tasty! The ginger and sesame is such a good combo 🙂

    So easy and so delicious! Made this with ground turkey AND scrambled eggs — greatly recommend including both for added texture/flavor/protein. The garnish of (extra) green onions, sriracha, cilantro and sesame seeds is necessary and absolutely makes the dish. Will be a staple for sure!

    WOW! Stumbled upon this recipe right when I had some Asian Slaw Mix that i needed to use ASAP. What a win!

    I had to make a few substitutions – sriracha for the sambal paste, ginger paste and minced garlic instead of fresh, dried cilantro, etc. But I LOVE this recipe and will definitely be making it often. I’m vegetarian, so I just used scrambled egg, but will try tofu next time.

    Thanks for the great recipe!

    1. Ahh what perfect timing!! I’m so glad you enjoyed this recipe, Katie and thanks for sharing your subs you made. It’s super helpful for other readers. 🙂 And thanks for taking the time to leave a comment and star rating. I so appreciate it!
