How to Make an Eggroll in a Bowl [Recipe]


I love Asian cuisine. Every time I go to Hong Kong (via Kroger on Starlite Drive here in Owensboro) I always order an extra egg roll. I think they are delicious.

So today on our What’s cooking? segment, our friend Kelly Bland from the UK Cooperative Extension Office shares a truly unique twist on this classic Asian favourite. This recipe basically removes the “roll” and puts everything in a bowl.

Here’s how to do it!


1 tablespoon oil

1 pound ground turkey or pork

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce

1 bag coleslaw (with carrots)

1 whole egg


Wash your hands with warm water and soap, rubbing for at least 20 seconds.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add the ground meat to the skillet and break it up until it is cooked through and has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F on a food thermometer. Drain the fat from the meat.

Add the garlic, ginger and soy sauce to the meat and stir to combine.

Add the coleslaw mixture to the cooked meat. Cook until the vegetables are tender.

Push the mixture into the pan to make a hole. Crack the egg into the open area and stir until well cooked.

Mix all the ingredients together and serve.

Store leftovers in the fridge within 2 hours.
