Egg Roll in a Bowl

I love egg rolls but the fried shell makes me feel bloated.  This recipes is quite similar to the egg roll base.  Of course, I have jazzed up this recipe adding more veggies but also making it super simple.

Stir-Fry Ingredients:

  • 1 bag cole slaw mix with carrots (~14 oz bag)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp grated ginger, grated
  • 1/2 -1 lb lean ground beef
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 3-4 green onions, chopped
  • Sesame seeds

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce  (or tamari or coconut amino acids)
  • 2 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 – 1 Tbsp sriracha (to your desired heat)
  • 1 Tbsp honey


  • Prepare the stir-fry sauce first. Mix sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add a neutral cooking oil (unscented coconut oil, avocado oil or olive oil).  Saute ground beef, garlic, ginger, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook the beef until browned (about five minutes).
  • Now add the cole slaw mix and cook until the cabbage is slightly wilted (or fully wilted, if you prefer).
  • Stir in the prepared sauce and the green onions. Optional: Top with a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
  • Serve by itself or serve over brown rice, quinoa (for a balanced meal).
