Egg Rolls in a Bowl, also known as Deconstructed Egg Rolls or Egg Roll Bowls, is a delicious and easy-to-make dish that captures the flavors of traditional egg rolls without the fuss of wrapping and frying. Here’s a simple recipe to prepare Egg Rolls in a Bowl:


  • 1 lb ground pork or ground turkey (you can also use chicken, beef, or tofu for a vegetarian option)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated or minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (use tamari or coconut aminos for a gluten-free version)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 medium cabbage, shredded
  • 2 large carrots, julienned or grated
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced (use any color you like)
  • 3-4 green onions, sliced diagonally
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce (optional, but it adds extra flavor)
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha or chili sauce (adjust to your preferred level of spiciness)
  • Sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
  • Cooked rice or cauliflower rice (for serving)


  • In a large skillet or wok, heat the sesame oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the ground pork (or your choice of protein) to the skillet and cook until it’s browned and fully cooked. Break up the meat into smaller pieces as it cooks.
  • Stir in the chopped onion, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Cook for a couple of minutes until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant.
  • Lower the heat to medium and add the shredded cabbage, julienned carrots, and sliced bell pepper to the skillet. Stir everything together.

  • In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce, rice vinegar, and hoisin sauce (if using). Pour the sauce mixture over the ingredients in the skillet and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
  • If you like a spicier dish, add the Sriracha or chili sauce and stir well.
  • Taste the mixture and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and sprinkle the sliced green onions over the top.
  • Serve the Egg Rolls in a Bowl over cooked rice or cauliflower rice. You can also garnish with sesame seeds for added texture and flavor.
