I have seen this Egg Roll in a Bowl Recipe all over the internet so I had to give it a shot.  I couldn’t resist!  I was excited because it was a low carb 30 minute meal that used regular ingredients you can find in almost any grocery store.

I am all about these easy low carb dinners because my family is busy in the evening so I like to have some easy dinner recipes I can make any night of the week.

Some of the other low carb 30 minute meals I have shared on my blog are Low Carb Florentine Pizza, Garlic Butter Shrimp with Cauliflower Rice, and Chayote Squash Noodles with Chorizo and Shrimp.

I also have a round-up of 30 low carb 30 minute meals!

I love using shrimp in recipes because it cooks up lightning fast and my whole family loves it.  I can usually find it on sale in the freezer section of big grocery store chains.  I used a whole 12 oz bag of large shrimp for this Egg Roll in a bowl that were already peeled and cleaned.  I then just cut them into chunks.

My other protein I used was pork sausage.  I was just going to use shrimp for this shrimp and pork egg roll in a bowl but I thought it needed more fat and calories to make it a good meal.  The pork sausage added spice without having to add any other sauces like sriracha.  You could definitely add some if you like it really spicy!

I was in utter shock when my picky husband told me how good this egg roll in a bowl was and went back for seconds.  It has cabbage and he liked it!  Still in shock over here.

This low carb egg roll in a bowl is definitely going in my meal rotation and I hope it makes its way into your dinner rotation too!

Course: dinner, Main Course
Cuisine: Chinese
Servings: 4
Calories: 408 kcal
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 12 oz raw shrimp, peeled and cleaned, cut into chunks
  • salt to taste

  1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the oil.  When oil and pan are hot, add the shrimp, season with salt and cook until the shrimp are pink and no longer translucent.  Remove from the pan and set aside.

  2. Add the pork sausage to the pan and break apart with a wooden spoon or meat chopper.  Cook until no longer pink.  

  3. Reduce the heat to medium.  Add the cabbage, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger.  Stir together and cook until the cabbage is slightly wilted.  Add the shrimp back to the pan and stir to combine.

Recipe Notes

Nutrition for 1/4th of recipe: 408 cal / 25g fat / 9g carbs / 3g fiber / 34g protein

  1. I use avocado oil for almost all of my cooking because it withstands high heat.  You could also use coconut oil or animal fat.
  2. For this egg roll in a bowl I used already chopped and bagged slaw mix.  You could definitely use a head of cabbage as well.
  3. I love using ginger paste instead of fresh ginger because it is so easy!  If you use fresh ginger, be sure to chop it finely.
  4. Instead of pork and shrimp, you could use chicken.  That would be delicious!

    I’m wondering if this would freeze well if making ahead for fast lunches?

      I don’t think it would because of the cabbage.

    The sausage is it the kind you would starve at breakfast?

    This is a fun way to have lots of delicious ingredients. A deconstructed egg roll! Really smart idea!
