Where is the egg rolls in a bowl recipe? In this post, I will share step-by-step instructions with photos for how to make the meal, as well as answering FAQs about the recipe and sharing a short video showing the recipe in motion. But you can go directly to the recipe by scrolling down to the bottom of the post.
Heat the olive oil and sesame seed oil in a large skillet. Add the minced garlic and minced ginger.
Can I use garlic powder and ground ginger to make egg rolls in bowl?
For the best results, I suggest using minced garlic and ginger. But if they aren’t available, you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder for one teaspoon of minced garlic. For the ginger, use 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger in place of one teaspoon minced ginger.
Next, add the soy sauce, sriracha sauce, and Chinese 5-Spice.
How do you make Chinese 5-Spice?
If you do not already have Chinese 5-Spice in your pantry, you can make it yourself. As the name implies, it is a combination of five spices: cinnamon, anise, fennel, ginger, and cloves. You only need 1/2 teaspoon for this recipe. So, add 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon ground anise, 1/8 teaspoon ground fennel, 1/16 teaspoon ground ginger, and 1/16 teaspoon ground cloves.
Add the ground beef and ground pork.
What is that cooking tool?
In the photo above, I’m using what is known as a meat chopper or meat masher. I love this utensil and use it every time I am cooking ground beef. To use the meat chopper, press straight down into the meat and give it a little twist. It easily breaks the meat up into small pieces. I have the Pampered Chef brand and you can buy it here on Amazon.
Cook the meat until browned and then drain the grease.
How do you drain grease from a skillet?
I’ve found that an easy way to drain the grease it to use paper towels to soak it up. Hold the pan at a slight incline. Move all of the meat to the top half of the incline and all of the grease will drain to the bottom. Then, soak up the grease with crumpled paper towels.
There are a couple of reasons I like this method. First, you don’t have to worry about spilling the meat out of the pan if you try to pour the grease out of it. Second, the paper towels that soak up the grease can be thrown away immediately unlike other methods where you collect the grease in a container and have to wait for it to solidify before discarding.
Return the pan to the burner. Add the shredded cabbage and shredded carrots.
What is an easy way to shred cabbage?
For this recipe, I like using bagged shredded cabbage as know as coleslaw mix. If you want to shred your own cabbage, start by removing the outer leaves. Rinse and dry the head and then slice it in half and then quarters. Cut off the core. Then, use a knife or a mandoline slicer to thinly slice the cabbage.
Cook and stir until the cabbage and carrots are softened.
Remove from heat and sprinkle with sliced green onions.
How long does egg rolls in a bowl last?
Allow the egg rolls in a bowl to cool and then store it in the fridge in an airtight container. It should last in the fridge for 2-3 days. Reheat it in the microwave.
If you aren’t overly concerned about carbs, sprinkle some crispy wonton strips on your egg rolls in a bowl.
What are wonton strips on the egg rolls in a bowl?
Wonton strips are just what the name implies: little strips of wonton wrappers that are crispy. They are the perfect topping for this egg rolls in a bowl recipe. You get everything in an egg roll without having to actually fry them. Crispy wonton strips are available near the croutons in the grocery store or you can buy them here on Amazon.
