My Love of this Thai Egg Roll Bowl knows no bounds
I’ve got to level with everyone, I love Thai food! It’s always been one of my favorite cuisines and since going Keto I haven’t had any. I’ve seen lot of recipes for egg roll in a bowl or it’s much more intense name “crack slaw”. If you’re unfamiliar it’s basically the filling from an egg roll sautéed in a pan and served in a bowl, kinda similar to moo shu without the pancakes. I wanted to come up with my own twist on the recipe. Thats when I came up with the idea to make a Thai version. This Thai Egg roll Bowl definitely exceeded expectation and will be added to my Keto meal prep Arsenal for sure.
I used ground pork for this version but you could substitute, ground beef, sausage, turkey or chicken .I’ve even substituted small shrimp and it was outstanding. I guess if you really wanted to make a vegetarian version you could but why…Ill only judge you a little.
Nobody Likes Mushy Cabbage
The biggest key in my mind is to not overlook the cabbage. Especially if you intend on portioning for meal prep. You only need to cook the cabbage for 2-3 minutes. The carry over cooking will finish off the cooking process. Ass soon as the cabbage is slightly tender remove it from the heat and then add the sauce to cool it down. then you can combine with the pork and portion out into Glass Meal Prep Containers.
I like to put a slice of lime in each container to add a little acid right before I eat. I also garnish each container with a spoon full of chopped peanuts, a drizzle of sriracha and a pinch of sesame seeds. This also keeps the colors bright and beautiful instead of that unappetizing green that cabbage can turn into.
The sauce may not be completely traditional. However, the Bright punch of lime and fish sauce brings all the bold flavors I associate with Thai cuisine. When combined with the spicy sambal oelek and coconut aminos you’ll be pleasantly surprised how fantastic this sauce is. This sauce can be used for plenty of other things like pouring over veggies or chicken. You could even make a spicy Thai “noodle” dish with some zucchini or Heart of Palm noodles.

I’m sure once you make it once you’ll be thinking of excuses to make it again. Even though it’s around 10 carbs per serving it’s very filling and can definitely fit your macros.
