If you’re a fan of my Korean Beef Bowl recipe, you are going to LOVE this Egg Roll in a Bowl dinner. Sooooo yummy and sooooo simple to make! Ground pork seasoned with simple Asian flavors, tossed with a coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots), and served over Jasmine rice with a little sriracha. Delish!
I was a little worried that my kids might revolt about the cabbage in this recipe, but I was banking on the fact that its name would be enough to get them to try it. They all love egg rolls. No one batted an eye or even seemed to recognize the cabbage in the mix. They were too busy telling me they loved it and asking for seconds.
I can’t wait for you to try this super simple Egg Roll in a Bowl recipe. It is a great weeknight dinner the whole family will enjoy. I typically use ground pork when I make this, but ground turkey or chicken works great in this recipe, too. Let me know which meat you use and how you like it!

Frequently Asked Auestions about making Egg Roll in a Bowl
What kind of meat is best to use for Egg Roll in A bowl?
I prefer to use ground pork, but ground turkey or ground chicken works great, too. Egg rolls are typically made with ground pork, so the flavor will be a bit more authentic using ground pork.
If I can’t Find Coleslaw Mix, how much shredded cabbage and Carrots should I use?
The recipe calls for a 16-ounce bag of coleslaw, which is approximately 4-5 lightly packed cups of coleslaw. I would suggest about four cups of lightly packed shredded cabbage and 1 cup of lightly packed shredded carrots.
If I don’t have any Sesame Seed Oil is there anything I can substitute?
The sesame oil really does add that hint of authentic Asian flavor to the dish, but if you don’t have any, don’t fret. You could toast some sesame seeds if you have some and toss them in with the finished product. Even if you don’t have either of those things, you will still enjoy this simple and tasty dinner.
Is egg roll in a bowl Gluten-Free?
There is a little bit of soy sauce in this recipe. So, if you want it to be gluten-free you will need to use amino acids instead of soy sauce.
Is egg roll in a bowl a Keto Recipe?
Most Egg Roll in a Bowl recipes are Keto, but I like to add a tsp of sugar in mine. So it technically is not Keto.
Is egg roll in a bowl Spicy?
The recipe as written is not spicy at all. The spice comes from individuals choosing to put sriracha on their own portions. I personally think a little siracha is the perfect addition to this yummy dinner, but if you don’t like a little spice, no problem. You can leave it as is.
- 1 tbsp sesame oil +1 tbsp canola oil
- 1 lb ground pork, turkey, or chicken
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 3-4 cloves of garlic, crushed
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
- 2½ tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 1 tsp sugar
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- pinch of red pepper flakes
- 1 (16 ounce) bag coleslaw mix (if the mix doesn't have very much carrot in it, grate another carrot to add to it.)
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- Sriracha, optional (for serving)
- Add the following to a large skillet: sesame oil, canola oil, ground pork, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat until meat is no longer pink and onions are translucent.
- Add the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sugar, ground ginger, and red pepper flakes. Stir until meat mixture is coated with the new flavors.
- Pour in the coleslaw mix and cook for 3-5 minutes. Be careful not to overcook. You want the cabbage and carrots to still have a little crunch to them and not be completely softened.
- Sprinkle the sliced green onions over the mixture and serve over steamed rice. You can also top with a drizzle of sriracha sauce if you prefer.
