Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl [Recipe]

Keto egg roll in a bowl has been an all time favorite dish of mine since embarking on a ketogenic lifestyle. It’s crazy popular in the low carb, paleo, and whole 30 circles for several reasons: it’s quick, it’s easy, and it captures the delightful essence of an egg roll without all the garbage added.Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl [Recipe]

If you’re wondering what the flavor of the dish is like, it’s as if the tasty filling was scooped out of an egg roll and delivered in a bowl while the greasy wrapper is tossed aside. Instead of deconstructing an egg roll and working backwards to pick out the part that is low carb friendly (I’m looking at you pizza-topping-picker-offer), pick up a few things from the grocery store. It will be worth it, don’t worry.Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl [Recipe]

You’ll need: a head of cabbage (yes, you can have cabbage on a keto diet), half an onion, a clove of garlic, liquid aminos or soy sauce, ground ginger, chicken broth, a couple green onion stalks, and a pound of ground pork. If you’d really like to shoot for an authentic Asian flavor profile, you could also score some sesame oil while you’re out and about. I’ve made it without sesame oil plenty of times and it’s still a hit, so feel free to use whatever you have on hand and trust that it will still be delicious.

Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl [Recipe]Brown your ground pork in a large pan or wok and cut your low carb cabbage and onion into long strands while the meat is cooking. You can use a knife, but the easiest way I have found to cut an entire head of cabbage and onions into threads is using a spiralizer. I am a huge fan of The Inspiralizer and couldn’t recommend it more; that thing is an animal! Noodley head of keto cabbage in seconds flat! Not a single tear shed cutting an onion! I’m so hooked.

To finish off your keto egg roll in a bowl, add a bit of oil to the pan with your pork and throw the onions in. Mix minced garlic and ground ginger into the soy sauce or liquid aminos, then add to the pan once the onions have caramelized. Add the cabbage to the mix and begin tossing the ingredients together. Drizzle the chicken broth over the cabbage leaves and stir frequently for a few minutes. Garnish with green onion and voila! A keto egg roll in a bowl!
