On the table in under 30 minutes and bursting with flavor, this Paleo, Keto + Whole30 egg roll in a bowl is sure to be a new favorite you add to your regular rotation. Gut healthy bone broth and apple cider vinegar are used in the sauce along with coconut aminos and seasonings, and the rest of the bowl is filled with shallot, garlic, cruciferous veggies, green onion and ground pork. This bright, cheerful low carb egg roll in a bowl is easy to make and delicious.
Better In A Bowl
Of course, my preference is to eat pretty much all my meals out of a bowl. This egg roll in a bowl is therefore checking off a lot of boxes – high on flavor, super quick and easy to make and served in a bowl. What more do you really need? I mean, really?
Tips For Quick Prep
We are always looking for shortcuts and ways to make prep lighter and less time consuming. One of our favorite ways is to buy pre-chopped coleslaw and cruciferous veggies at Trader Joe’s. They have organic options for both the coleslaw and cruciferous mixes. The coleslaw is pretty straight forward – shredded cabbage and carrots. The cruciferous mix has purple and green cabbage, kale, brussels sprouts and broccoli. All the work is done for you, and you just have to add the veggies into the skillet.
Pork, Chicken Or Turkey
This egg roll in a bowl calls for ground pork, but if pork isn’t your thing no biggie. You can easily use ground chicken or turkey instead. We like the extra bit of savory flavor you get with the pork, but either chicken or turkey will do the trick and take on the flavors of the sauce.

Egg Roll in a Bowl (Paleo, Whole30 + Keto)
For the sauce:
- 1/4 cup coconut aminos
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
For the bowl:
- 1 shallot, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 8 cups coleslaw mix + cruciferous salad mix, (shredded cabbage & carrots - can use a 14oz pre-shredded bag or shred your own. We also added some of the cruciferous mix from Trader Joe's as well.)
- 4 green onions, chopped
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 lb ground pork, (can sub ground chicken, beef, or turkey)
- Salt and pepper
- Sesame seeds, (optional topping)
- Prepare the sauce by mixing all of the sauce ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside.
- Chop shallot, garlic, and green onions as noted.
- Heat a large skillet or wok over medium high heat and add in sesame oil. Once hot, add in shallot and garlic. Saute for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Add in ground pork. Break the pork into bits and season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is cooked and has formed some brown crispy bits on the pieces.
- Once the pork is cooked, add in the coleslaw and/or cruciferous veggie mix and green onions. Cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the veggies begin to soften. Turn heat to low.
- Add in the sauce to the skillet. Mix everything together well and cook for a few minutes or until the cabbage is cooked to your liking. Remove from heat and serve. Top with optional sesame seeds.
This is a definite 5 star! Absolutely delicious. I used ground turkey and was afraid it would not taste as good as ground pork but nope, it’s sooo yummy! Keeping on the rotation for sure!
I’m so thrilled to hear you enjoyed this one so much! We go back and forth between ground pork and turkey and it’s great with both! Thanks for coming back to share your review! 🙂
A smash hit! This recipe was so simple and delicious. I made two rounds of it last week, as Husband prefers double meat. I made this for meal prep lunches for work. After the first day I decided to serve it over brown rice. Husband LOVES veggies and would like more next time. All in all, a really tasty dish that has made its way into our lunch rotation!
I made this meal last week as a meal prep lunch for both my husband and me! It was a smash hit! My husband requested double pork (per usual) and he loved it. I added some brown rice to give it a little more oomph and to stick with me longer at work. Husband requested more veggies – but he ALWAYS does. This is 100% a make again! Friends at work even asked for the recipe. Incredibly easy – will be in the lunch rotation!
Hooray!! We love hearing that so much! Thanks so much for trying our recipes and for sharing on IG too. We appreciate that you came to share a review! 🙂
Made this tonight. Absolutely delicious! Easy to make and we’ll have leftovers for tomorrow night. Yum!!!
Love love love this recipe. I usually double this. If you double, only do the liquid 1.5x . I then mix up some lime juice, chipotle powder, and new orimal chipoltle mayo to drizzle on top.
One of mine and my bfs fave new dinner staples

Seriously the most delicious recipe! Became a staple when I did my first Whole30, and now over a year later, it’s still a staple just in daily life. So easy, and so delicious!!

This was filling and delicious! My husband added some sriracha and loved it. It was quick and easy to cook, which I love.
So glad this one was a hit, too! We love how easy it is to throw together and you can really use almost any veggies you have on hand. Thanks again for coming back over here to share your rating and review! We really appreciate your support.
Have a family member allergic to coconut, what could be used to replace that. TIA!
Hi there! No worries – you can sub with our DIY Coconut Aminos Substitute. Hope you guys enjoy it! Let us know how it goes.
Loved this recipe! I subbed the ground pork for ground turkey and added a handful of spinach for extra greens. This recipe is so easy to make and is great for meal prep!
This is my go to meal- so delicious and easy. The best for meal prep
Delicious and truly quick and easy.
This recipe has earned itself a spot in our regular dinner rotation- we make it with ground chicken and almost the whole bag of the cruciferous crunch mix plus extra shredded carrots for added veggies and it’s a hit every time!
Glad you are enjoying this one Christie!
Easy to make and delicious! Not a fan of fish flavor so we just left that out and a touch more coconut aminos (as recommended).
So glad you enjoyed it!
Is there a substitute for the fish sauce if you do’t have any on hand?
Just add a little more coconut aminos in place of the fish sauce. Hope you enjoy!
I made this last night for my last day of Whole30 and it was delicious! Thank you for creating such yummy dinner recipes that my whole family enjoys. The only change I would make is to add extra garlic and use more cabbage and less other veggies – but that’s all up to personal preference!
You’re welcome, glad you enjoyed the recipe!
We made this and it’s so good! Easy and yum. Thanks for all your recipes.
You’re welcome! Glad you enjoyed the recipe :).
