Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl

This Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl is our family’s answer to take-out! It’s ready in minutes, packs in a ton of flavor, and it’s good for you, too!

My husband loooooves Asian food. 

It’s probably the hardest part about sticking to a low carb diet for him.

Well…that and cookies. The man REALLY likes cookies too. 😉 Luckily, our keto peanut butter cookies keep him pretty happy.

You definitely CAN eat at Asian restaurants and stay low carb, but it’s trickier than most restaurants, in my opinion. So, we skip the take out and we make this keto egg roll in a bowl recipe instead! Another favorite is our keto chicken stir fry.

You’ve probably seen various versions of this floating around the internet.

We often make this sausage egg roll in a bowl, but this chicken version is my personal favorite. It’s hard to go wrong with chicken – everyone loves it!

Chicken – We’re using ground chicken today, but beef, sausage, or ground pork work well too! You can even use shredded chicken.

Coleslaw Mix – Keep things simple with this recipe and just pick up a bag of coleslaw mix from the store. No need to shred your own cabbage and carrots, but you’re welcome to do so!

Eggs – Believe it or not, most egg roll recipes don’t actually contain any eggs. But that’s okay, because this keto egg roll recipe doesn’t actually contain any rolls. We’re really switching it up!

Asian Flavors – We love adding in lots of great Asian flavors to this dish, and you’ll get all that with some ginger, soy sauce, garlic, sesame oil, and green onion. Oh, and we usually serve it with some sriracha!

Why We Love This Recipe:
  • This is a 15 minute dinner – so fast!
  • Easy to customize by swapping out the ground chicken for whatever protein you like best.
  • This easily satisfies that Asian food craving, which can be tricky on low carb since it’s often full of sugary sauces.

How To Make Keto Egg Roll:

  • Chicken –  Start by browning some ground chicken with a little oil in either a large skillet or a wok until it has cooked through and crumbled.
  • Coleslaw Mix – When the chicken has cooked through you can add in the bag of coleslaw mix along with the garlic, ginger, and soy sauce. These will add the perfect Asian inspired flavors to this keto egg roll in a bowl recipe! Cook for another 5 minutes while stirring or until the cabbage has softened.
  • Eggs – True story: Egg rolls are named egg rolls because of the wrapper – not because there are eggs in the filling! So, the eggs here aren’t super traditional, but it’s a nice way to up the protein and stretch this dish even further. Push the cabbage aside to make some room in your skillet and then crack a couple of eggs and scramble them up before mixing with the cabbage and chicken!
  • Finish – I like to give this a little taste and make sure the seasoning is where I want it before stirring in some green onions and drizzling it with a little sesame oil. A dash or two of more of soy sauce really amps up the flavor and, if you like it spicy, drizzle on a little sriracha or stir in some sambal oelek. A bit of fish sauce amps up the flavor too and gives it a deeper savory vibe. This dish is ready in just 15 minutes and it’s a real crowd pleaser around here! Serve it up with a side of my cauliflower chicken fried rice.

FAQs:

How to store egg roll in a bowl?

You can keep this keto egg roll recipe stored in the refrigerator for about 3 to 4 days in an airtight container!

Should I use a skillet or a wok?

That’s a good question! You can definitely use a wok if you prefer, but most home stoves don’t get hot enough to really make good use of a wok. It needs hot, high flames around the sloped sides to cook properly. So if you have an electric stove or flat induction stove, I’d definitely stick with a large skillet to ensure it cooks evenly.

  1. This recipe is delicious! I’ve made it a few times. Tonight I used ground Turkey and I added a little lime juice and swerve to make it a tad sweet and OMG amazing!!! Thank you for posting this recipe!

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Carol!

      This can be made ahead, but I’m not sure how well it would freeze.

      1. Carol Hopf

        I froze it and took on our cross country RV trip. It came out fine. The slaw may not have been as crunchy, but still tasted great.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Jan! The recipe serves 4, so the nutrition info is based on 1/4 of the recipe. I didn’t measure it by volume.

  2. Made this for the first time tonight! I added some Chinese five spice and it really kicked up the flavour a notch!

  3. I’ve made ERIAB probably 30 times. Yours is the best I’ve ever tried!! I will be using your recipe for the next 30 times!

  4. Kimberly Hurley

    Hey Karly,
    This looks amazing! I was wondering if this would freeze well? I am wanting to divide it into individual portions for lunch at work.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hey! I personally don’t love this reheated, but I know most people do. My husband would probably eat it cold from the fridge, he likes the leftovers so much. 😉 So, my guess is that it would freeze just fine but I can’t say for sure.

  5. America G.

    Just made this with ground beef (what I had in fridge) and, man, it’s delicious! Would love to incorporate some peanut taste to it! Next time!

  6. Megan O'Toole

    My husband and I really enjoyed this! A little different than the keto I’ve been serving for what is now over a year! Don’t overlook the sesame and sriracha for finishing – -both a must to take it to the level this quick meal deserves.

  7. We made this recipe twice in one week! This is awesome. First time I followed the recipe as written except I didn’t have green onions or sesame oil. It was fabulous! Second time, we used ground pork instead of the chicken, and this time I had the green onion and the sesame oil. Still fabulous! Will probably add mushrooms next time. I have already told a dozen people about it. Easy, quick preparation, and it makes plenty. This one is a keeper.

  8. Karly, this recipe sounds awesome. I’m going to use ground pork as a lot of egg rolls have either pork or shrimp in them. Also I found Nasoya Vegan Wonton Wraps. They’re 11 carbs for three wraps. Thought I would shred them and bake them up to add a crunchy texture.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Great find! I didn’t realize those wraps were on the lower side of carbs. 🙂

  9. Kimberly Thacker

    This was delicious! Added a few mushrooms, low carb and I love them. Thanks so much for the great recipe!

  10. Hi Karley
    Sorry, just woke up from nap. My brain not fully engaged yet looking at Fat instead of Carbs. Apologies!!
    Thanks Lan

  11. Hi Karley
