Homemade egg rolls can be time consuming. Plus, if you’re trying to eat healthier, they’re definitely off the table.
So, if you’re trying to satisfy those egg roll cravings without breaking your diet or spending a ton of time in the kitchen, egg roll bowls are the way to go!
Essentially, you take all the delicious ingredients that make a savory pork egg roll, and stir-fry them up. This dish includes ground pork, cabbage, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and sesame oil. You can even add a little sriracha to kick it up a notch if you like spicy food.
It saves you the trouble of making the actual rolls, but still packs the same flavorful punch. And let’s be honest, if you’re anything like me, you’re not exactly stellar at rolling up egg rolls. They’ve either got too much or too little filling, they’re wrapped wrong, or they just fall apart. This recipe saves me a lot of frustration in the kitchen!
Now, I know you might be thinking that you’ll miss the satisfying crunch of that deep fried egg roll wrapper. But never fear — the cabbage in the recipe adds that much needed crunch.
Plus, if you’re trying to eat healthier, you don’t want the fried wrapper, anyway. Served on its own, this recipe makes a diet-friendly dish that you can make any night of the week.
