Egg Roll in a Bowl (Whole30, Paleo, Kid-Friendly)

First off, I must give credit to the two incredible women, Michele Chapman and Melissa Brown, that shared this recipe with me. I feel so lucky to have a community of Paleo/Whole30 enthusiast, I get recipes sent to me left and right (keep ’em coming!). I’m always on the hunt for recipes that are #1 easy and #2 tasty; this recipe hits the mark with both!  Thanks Michele & Melissa – this dinner is going into the weekly rotation!


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 4

Recipe adapted from: Tip Hero


  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 – 16-ounce bag coleslaw mix (shredded carrots and cabbage) I used THIS salad mix from Costco (tossed the dressing pack)
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • ⅓ cup coconut aminos
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 green onions, chopped, for garnish


  1. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, ginger, coconut aminos and sesame oil. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, using a wooden spoon brown the pork over medium-high heat. Use your spoon to break up the pork really well.
  3. Add the shredded cabbage and carrots, and stir to combine.
  4. Add the sauce mixture to the meat and veggies. Stir and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, until the cabbage has just begun to wilt but is still crunchy.
  5. Serve over my Coconut Cauliflower Rice, garnished with green onions.


  • If you don’t care for cauliflower rice, this can also be eaten in a lettuce wrap.
  • Add in some red pepper flakes to give it some heat.
  • Double the recipe for leftovers

(not whole30/Paleo)

  • Serve over white rice for the kids.
