This is one of those dishes that you will fight for the last bite. Most of have fond memories of deep fried eggrolls. I used to love the eggrolls, and to this day haven’t found a single restaurant that beats the eggrolls I used to enjoy as a child.
Skipping to present day, now I skip the outside and sometimes still order eggrolls and just eat the insides. That’s why this healthy eggroll in a bowl is so perfect for the low carb or grain free diet.
This is a very easy recipe, one you should put into your rotation frequently. It’s also pretty affordable, as ground pork is inexpensive as is a bag of cole slaw. If you’re thinking this is something that you can’t feed your family because it’s not enough, buy a bag of frozen rice (I love what Trader Joe’s sells).
Choose Ground Meat, Shrimp, or Shredded Pork, for Healthy Egg Roll in a Bowl
You can replace the ground pork with left over roast pork. You can also replace the pork with ground turkey or ground beef. I also like this recipe with shrimp. YOU DECIDE what is best for you.
