Eggroll in a Bowl
~Trim Healthy Mama, Paleo, & Keto Friendly~
Looking for a new twist to your typical meat and veggie? We love this scrumptious oriental option to shake things up a bit! You’ll be coming back for seconds cause it’s just that good and a definite crowd, please! No one will feel like they’re eating super healthy, but they are!
Check Out the Recipe Below…
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil (or oil of your choice if you don’t have sesame, but the sesame really makes the dish!)
- 1 lb. ground pork (not sausage) or ground beef (I prefer pork, but either keep it S) – and if you sub ground turkey or
- chicken, make sure it’s not leaner than 97% or it’ll be very dry, but it’s definitely not the best choice either way (see FP/E options below)
- 6 cups finely sliced cabbage (about 1 medium head)
- 1 cup shredded carrots (4g carbs per 1/4 cup serving is fine for this S meal)
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped or minced
- ¼ cup coconut aminos (which is a soy sauce alternative) or you can use Bragg’s Aminos
- Salt and black (or white) pepper to taste
- Optional: other favorite vegetables
- Optional: 2-3 green onion stalks, finely chopped
- Optional: 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- Brown the ground pork (or beef) in large frying pan until fully cooked. Turn heat to medium-high and add chopped onion (not the green onions yet) and sesame oil, increase heat to lightly brown the onions.
- In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, ginger and coconut amino’s and add to pan, and then immediately add the sliced cabbage and stir.
- Cook for a few minutes, stirring often, so that it doesn’t burn and so all cabbage slightly wilts and reduces in size.
- Then add shredded carrots and cook for another few minutes.
- Turn off heat, add chopped green onions, salt and black pepper to taste, stir one last time and serve warm.
*(Makes 4 Servings)
To make it E:
Use extra-lean meat instead (ground turkey, or skinless chicken breast – ground, chopped, or shredded), and because of the lack of juiciness (fat) from the meat, add 1/4 cup of fat-free chicken stock (or water). You may want to also add a bit more of the aminos and ginger, and feel free to add extra carrots too! Serve over brown rice.
