Easy Egg roll in a Bowl
Whip up this Easy Egg roll in a Bowl for a quick and easy dinner this week. You get those components of an egg roll but without all the headache of rolling and frying each roll. This is an egg roll in a bowl that will become an instant family favorite. Tender cabbage and carrots, ground pork, and spices for flavor.
Chinese is always a favorite in our home. But, with a lot of Chinese food, you will find it is high in carbs because it is more of indulgent food. Well, this egg roll in a bowl is a healthier alternative to a classic egg roll. You could even cook up some won-ton chips to dip into your mix, for that added crunch you might want.
One Skillet Egg Roll In A Bowl
One pot does it all for a no fuss and no mess dinner. I make it even easier by grabbing pre-made coleslaw that I dump and stir into the cooked pork. We have made this recipe for a few years, I hopped on the bandwagon when I saw this plastered all over the internet years ago! It is now a family favorite that I make often.
I have tried making this same recipe in the Instant Pot and I have to say I prefer the skillet option better. It is so simple to make in a skillet you won’t miss your Instant Pot. You all know I love my Instant Pot, but sometimes other kitchen accessories just work a bit better!

Crack Slaw Egg Roll In A Bowl
Okay, you also might know this as crack slaw. I learned this a while back when a friend said crack slaw, and I had no idea. This meaning this recipe is just as addictive as it can get. And they were right, it truly is!
Toppers for Egg Roll In A Bowl
- Dip Pita Chips
- Make Wonton Chips
- Tortilla Chips
- Or Eat alone
We don’t mind eating this all by itself. But sometimes we want to dress it up and I will make some wonton chips. It offers a nice crunch factor.
Can I Use A Head Of Cabbage for Egg Roll In A Bowl
Yes! If you don’t want to use coleslaw mix, just slice up your cabbage as you would, and toss it in. You might want to add in some slivered carrots as well. I just prefer a bag, for the ease!
This dish is such a tasty recipe to add to your menu rotation. Cabbage is loaded with vitamins, minerals, folic acid and more. So if you want a lower carb dish that is packed full of flavor and nutrients, give it a go!

Sounds delicious. Can I make this the day before?
So simply and delicious!
When do you use the sesame oil?
I put it in with the pork and cooked it
Hi! This looks amazing! I’m just curious, what’s the serving size?
@Megan, That’s a great and elusive question. Me and Mrs. Jones were trying to figure out how a yield of 6 and serving size of 2 works out as well. Probably debated the possible mistake/ misprint so much we burned extra calories brainstorming, so that’s a win.
Can you use pork sausage (in the roll) in place of ground pork if that’s what you have on hand?
I have made this recipe five times now, and my family loves it!! I have made it with ground pork, ground chicken and ground turkey and all three are very tasty!!
I have one critique, In the ingredients you have listed sesame oil but in the directions you do not include the sesame oil. So I put the sesame oil in right after the onions and garlic mix it around and stir for about another minute then add the soy, ginger and rice vinegar.
One addition that I add is that I fry wonton wrappers. I cut them in half and fry them to a golden brown put them on a paper towel and salt them. This is a definite plus for the egg roll bowls!!
Thank you so very much for sharing this recipe I will probably put it in my lifelong cookbook!! Your the BEST!!
Thanks so much for the comment 😊
@Katie R – Colorado,
In the grocery by the salad toppings, I buy the packaged Wonton Strips for topping. Saves the step of having to fry them.
@Lois, What a great idea!! Thank you for sharing that. I will look into those the next time I shop for this meal!! 🤗
This is one of my favorite recipes. I use the left overs to make air fried egg rolls. So simple, easy and delicious.
Top with Sweet and Sour sauce & Wonton strips!
