Egg Roll in a Bowl- S, E, or FP
 
Author:
Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: Asian
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil (or oil of your choice if you don’t have sesame, but the sesame really makes the dish!)
  • 1 lb. ground pork or beef (S) or lean ground turkey (E or FP)
  • 6 cups finely sliced cabbage (about 1 medium head)
  • 1 cup shredded carrots (4g carbs per ¼ cup serving so fine for this S meal)
  • 1 medium onion
  • chopped 3 cloves garlic
  • finely chopped or minced 1 teaspoon ground ginger/ginger powder
  • (if you choose fresh ginger for this recipe, you'll need to use quite a bit and be sure it's grated/minced very fine; I love fresh, but ground really works better in this recipe)
  • ¼ cup coconut aminos (soy sauce alternative) or Bragg's Amino
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Chicken Broth
  • Optional: 2-3 green onion stalks, finely chopped
  • Optional: ¼ tsp red pepper flakes adds a nice kick!
Instructions
  1. Brown the ground pork (or beef) in large frying pan until fully cooked.
  2. Turn heat to medium-high and add chopped onion (not the green onions yet) and sesame oil, increase heat to lightly brown the onions.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, ginger and aminos and add to pan, and then immediately add the sliced cabbage and stir.
  4. Cook for a few minutes, stirring often, so that it doesn't burn and so all cabbage slightly wilts and reduces in size.
  5. Then add shredded carrots and cook for another few minutes.
  6. Turn off heat, add chopped green onions, salt and black pepper to taste, stir one last time and serve warm.
  7. Same great taste you’ll get in an eggroll, minus the deep fried wrapper, so MUCH healthier!
Notes
To make it E: Use extra lean meat instead (like 99% lean ground turkey, or skinless chicken breast - ground, chopped, or shredded) and because of the lack of juiciness (fat) from the meat, add ¼ cup of fat-free chicken stock (or water). To make it E: You may want to also add a bit more of the aminos and ginger, and feel free to add extra carrots too! Serve over brown rice. To make it FP: Use extra lean meat instead (like 99% lean ground turkey, or skinless chicken breast - ground, chopped, or shredded) and because of the lack of juiciness (fat) from the meat, add ¼ cup of fat-free chicken stock (or water). You may want to also add a bit more of the aminos and ginger. However, with the above said, it's by far best as S using ground pork (not sausage!) or ground beef. ENJOY!

  10. I’ve been following the Trim Healthy Mama plan for almost three weeks. I’ve been trying recipes and made this tonight. I’ve loved everything I’ve tried so far, but this is the BEST recipe I’ve made yet! I made it as an “E” meal with ground turkey and used two small bags of Asian slaw mix with red cabbage, shredded carrots and a few snow peas and served it on a bed of quinoa. Wow, The flavors melded together perfectly! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe and thank you, Diana, for creating it. It will be in my family’s meal plan quite a bit!

  11. I’ve been a follower of THM for about a month and Egg Roll in a Bowl is now a favorite meal for my family! We love all the crunchy colorful veggies and the combination of flavors that come with the ginger and sesame oil! Made it using ground pork the first time. Tonight I plan to use shrimp and expect another round of applause – 5 Stars!

  15. So if i understand correctly, because of the carrots you can only have 1/4 cup serving to keep this an S meal? Doesn’t seem like enough to call a meal. Maybe I’m misunderstanding???

    • If you’re concerned about the amount of carrots in a S setting don’t use as many and substitute with more broccoli or zucchini

  26. I added this recipe into the MyFitnessPal website (assuming it would produce 4 servings) and it says it has 20 grams of carbs and 3 grams of fat per serving without meat which would be an “E”, with 90% lean ground beef the fat would increase to 13 grams per serving and using lean ground turkey the fat increases to 12. I guess I’m asking, if meat is used wouldn’t this recipe be a crossover? It would be an “E” (up to 45 grams of carbs and 5 grams or less of fat) with no meat and a “Crossover” (up to 45 grams carbs and over 5 grams of fat) if you used meat – that is what I’m seeing anyway.

  28. Gloria we don’t count carbs in veggies for THM so it would be an S category if you use lean ground beef rather than a crossover. In order to have an E category you’d have to use super lean meat and have a carb source such as quinoa or brown rice.

  35. This makes it completely not a THM recipe, but absolutely delicious – try adding a cup of homemade beef broth to the recipe right after the cabbage. It gives a nice boost of flavor. :)

  44. Original author?? The title may be original but my filipino friend laughed so hard when I told her that I basically make the lumpia (egg rolls) she taught me how to make 20 yrs ago. She said this is Pancit. I was wondering what Pancit was…every filipino has variations depending on the family(her dad was a chef in the philippines at one time). When she taught me we were using ground turkey.

  54. Just FYI, if you’re subbing dried herbs/spices for fresh, or vice verse, it’s a 1 to 3 ratio. So 1 tsp of ground ginger would be 1 TBS of fresh ginger. :)
