Egg Roll Stir Fry

Pin It

This recipe is something my mom made when I was growing up. It was always a big hit and still is today in my kitchen.  Basically, Egg Roll Stir Fry is the inside of an egg roll without the crispy wrap, so it can be considered a healthy alternative to the fried egg roll!
I want to share this fun recipe with you so lets get started…

Egg Roll Stir Fry 2

What you need:

1 lbs. of ground beef, pork, or chicken (I use beef)
1 head of cabbage (on the smaller side)
You can also add bok choy (optional)
3-4 medium carrots
1/4 onion chopped finely
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 heaping tsp of fresh grated ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 TBS oil (sesame or vegetable)
4-5 TBS low sodium soy sauce
2 TBS rice vinegar
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

First, shred cabbage with a serrated knife. It is important to cut the cabbage with a serrated knife because it will shred the cabbage.

I apologize for the blurry picture :(

Next, chop bok choy. Then place cabbage and bok choy in a large mixing bowl. Shred the carrots with a vegetable peeler and toss well.

Then brown your ground meat with
finely diced onions and minced garlic. Drain grease from meat if needed.

Ground Beef

As you can see below, you fill the pan full of cabbage, bok choy and carrots. Now you add fresh grated ginger, oil, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic powder and ground black pepper.

If you have to split the mixture because you do not have a large sauté pan or wok, half the cabbage mixture, ground meat, ginger, oil, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic powder, and black pepper between batches.

Once you have everything in the pan toss with tongs until coated evenly. Cover and cook over medium heat until cabbage has wilted, toss occasionally!

  8. Super yummy recipe~ :) Found you from Family Fresh Meals!!

  9. I just saw this linked on Manila Spoon's Facebook page. Was thinking of using a 16 oz bag of coleslaw mix in place of the shredded cabbage and carrots. Think that would work okay quantity-wise?

  10. We're making this soon! And, whether you did it on purpose or not, I am totally cracking up at the very last directions "toss with thongs"....I think we will use "tongs" at my house. Thanks for sharing. We love fried cabbage and now have more than 1 recipe!

  11. Just made this and it was great! I did add some toasted sesme seeds, used olive oil amd since I didn't habe rive vinegar I used balsamic and it was a huge hit! I plan on making it again and maybe adding some rice noodles and mushrooms.

  12. I made this last week and everyone LOVED it!! So we made it again this week. So, so good! Thanks for sharing.

  13. This is one of our family's new favorite recipes. Thanks so much for posting it.

    1. You just made my day! Thank you for letting me know :)

  14. Do you have an idea on the serving sizes? Made and way to GOOD!! But considering the soy sauce, l used 1 tbs normal and rest water. But wow really good, just a little curious on how much l should stop at.

  15. Egg Rolls are my favorite thing!! This will soon be an often repeated meal at my house. It works great with our Gluten Free eating as well!! Thanks so much for the great recipe!chowringhee
