Sausage Egg Roll in a Bowl Recipe
Easy Keto Sausage Egg Roll in a Bowl Recipe
A great way to enjoy your favourite Chinese appetizer without the carbs and guilt.
- 1¼ lb spicy bulk pork sausage (no filler ingredients)
- ¼ cup water
- 3 cup green cabbage (shredded)
- 1 medium carrot (shredded)
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
- ½ tbsp fresh ginger (finely minced)
- 2 stalks green onions (chopped)
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 tbsp coconut aminos or tamari
- Sea salt and black pepper (to taste)
- 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds (for garnish)
Heat a large high-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking the meat into small pieces as it cooks, for approximately 5-6 minutes. Once sausage is no longer pink, remove from heat and carefully drain excess grease from pan.
Safety Tip: Wipe off any excess fat that drips down the side of the pan before returning to burner.
Return skillet to heat. Add water and scrape up brown bits from the bottom of the pan with a spatula. Reduce heat to medium and add shredded cabbage, carrots, sesame oil, ginger, and green onions. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and cook, stirring frequently, until the cabbage wilts and the carrot softens, approximately 4-5 minutes.
Add rice vinegar and coconut aminos and stir to combine. Cook another 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat and transfer to a serving platter or bowl. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
