With seasoned pork, caramelized cabbage and carrots– this yummy Egg Roll Bowl is everything you love in your favorite Asian appetizer, without all the work and none of the grease.
Today is Thursday, and you deserve a nice pat on the back, my friends. For you have traversed the steep mountain known as Wednesday and are now sliding downhill to the wonderful world of this weekend.
For your patience and fortitude, I present to you, the latest and greatest from the Sons’ kitchen- the egg roll bowl. Hold on to your plates!
This egg roll in a bowl is now one of our favorite ways to get our Chinese fix.
It’s cheap AND it’s easy. Really, really easy. Even better, this Egg Roll Bowl isn’t horrible for your health. Even serving it over rice is optional. It’s still that good.
This makes it perfect for people looking to shave off some calories and those on a lower carb diet. Or if you just want something really satisfying that won’t leave you guilt-ridden & greasy feeling.
We love Chinese take out, but how often after indulging can you say you still feel good? The egg roll bowl is here to help you have your guilty pleasure, without the guilt.
All the classic egg roll flavors you love are still there, in fact they’ve even been improved upon. This deconstructed egg roll’s amped up a notch by caramelized cabbage and carrots, and without any of those not-so-good-for-you fried parts.
There’s no grease, no frying involved. This meal comes together in less than 30 minutes from start to finish. For real, it’s quick cooking and super simple.
Some sausage is browned with thinly sliced green onions, and lightly seasoned. Instead of chopping our own cabbage and carrots, which is totally an option we suggest a simple short cut instead.
We use a package of coleslaw for the perfect mixture of cabbage & carrots. The prep work’s already been done for you. Also by keeping everything small & uniform it cooks up by breaking down and caramelizing in a flash.
The mixture can be ladled into bowls and eaten as is, or served over a bed of white rice. If carbs aren’t an issue, or rice, then I highly recommend that for the ultimate egg roll bowl.
Add toppings for the full experience. We like to add some extra thinly sliced green onions and a couple fresh cilantro leaves. Crispy wonton strips or chow mein noodles both offer great crunch & texture.
Need some sauce? Sweet & sour sauce, duck sauce, and even spicy mustard are all tasty options. A little drizzle over top and your chop sticks are ready to help you chow down.
