Egg Roll in a Bowl garnished with sesame seeds and sliced green onions

This recipe for egg roll in a bowl has quickly risen to the top of our  “favorite quick dinners” list! Not only is it super tasty, it’s great for a few other reasons too. So, I’m just going to jot down a short list of things I love about this super simple supper right here: it’s low-carb, it’s gluten-free, it’s light and healthy, (perhaps best of all) it’s ready to serve in just minutes, and it’s really tasty…oh wait, I mentioned that already… oh well!

egg roll in a bowl in a skillet

If you enjoy Asian-style food, especially egg rolls, you will love this dish, y’all. This easy skillet meal honestly tastes just like the stuffing of a chicken or pork egg roll that is served with your favorite Chinese take-away dinner!

For convenience, I like to use pre-packaged cole slaw mix (just the shredded cabbage and carrots, no need for a dressing mix) as a time-saving shortcut when I make this dish. However, if you prefer to shred your own vegetables, you can certainly go that route too.

Feel free to add-in or take away from these ingredients as you prefer. You can also whip up a satisfying vegetarian version using a ground meat substitute or you could simply toss in more veggies to fill up the skillet. A cup or two of chopped broccoli, chopped cauliflower, chickpeas, edamame, snow peas or thinly sliced bell peppers and onions would be great ingredient choices for an entirely vegetarian egg roll in a bowl!

Let me know how you make it! Happy eating, y’all!

This egg roll in a bowl really does taste just like the stuffing of an egg roll. Feel free to use your choice of ground meat for this recipe. Vegetarian? Just add in some chopped broccoli, cauliflower or thinly sliced bell peppers and onions or any other veggies to you enjoy to complete the meal!


  • 1 lb ground pork, chicken or beef, as you prefer

  • 2 medium cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 package (14 oz) cole slaw mix or shredded cabbage

  • 3-4 tablespoons soy sauce (to taste)

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 generous pinch of ground black pepper

  • 1-2 tablespoons Sriracha, to taste (optional)

  • 2-3 green onions, sliced, for garnish

  • toasted sesame seeds, for garnish

  • 3-4 hard boiled eggs, sliced or chopped, for garnish (optional)


  • Brown the meat in a large skillet over medium heat. (refer to Note below about any rendered pan drippings)
  • Add garlic to the cooked meat and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes. Add in the shredded cabbage mixture, and use tongs to combine the veg with the warm meat. Allow the meat and vegetable mixture to cook for about 4 minutes, stirring often, or until the cabbage is nicely wilted.
  • Mix in the soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and black pepper and toss evenly with the meat mixture.
  • Drizzle with sriracha, if desired and mix it into the egg roll in a bowl. Garnish as preferred with sliced green onions, toasted sesame seeds and a hard boiled egg.
  • Enjoy!

  • Leave the fat that renders as you cook the ground meat in the pan, it will help the cabbage wilt and add flavor. However, if an excessive amount of fat is rendered, you should drain the pan leaving only about two tablespoons worth of drippings with the meat.

  1. This is a brilliant idea, Marcelle. Although, I do think I would miss the deep fried wonton skin! (And I know this version is much better for meโ€ฆ)

  2. This is such a terrific idea! Love egg rolls, but it’s the filling, not the wrapper, that I most enjoy. Neat way to get the flavor I crave, without a lot of effort. Excellent recipe — thanks.

  3. That looks amazing and I love low carbs meals!
