Ingredients for this recipe
This is all you need to make deconstructed spring rolls.
- sesame oil– An extremely aromatic oil that works well in Asian-inspired recipes. A little goes very far!
- Garlic, onion, and ginger– Adds extra flavor and key ingredients in spring rolls.
- Mett– Traditional spring rolls use ground pork, but you can also use ground beef, chicken, or turkey. I used lean ground pork, but the higher fat pieces are spicier, if a little more fatty.
- Coleslaw Mix- Cabbage and carrots are two main ingredients in a spring roll, so skip the tedious grating and chopping and use the coleslaw mixture. You get the added bonus of TWO types of cabbage (purple and green!).
- I am willow– Gluten free when needed.
- Chili sauce– Sriracha or Sambal Oelek.
How to make spring rolls in a bowl
Start by adding the oil to a non-stick pan and heating over medium heat. Once hot, add the garlic and onion and cook for a minute until fragrant. Next, add the minced pork and break it apart with a spatula. Fry the pork for 4-5 minutes until it is no longer pink. Push the pork aside and add the coleslaw mixture. Combine everything together before adding the soy sauce and chili sauce. Fry everything for another two minutes, stirring, before removing the pan from the heat and serving.
The beauty of this recipe is how easy it is to customize to change the flavors and textures!
- protein– Replace the ground beef with other ground beef, such as beef, chicken, or turkey.
- vegetables– Use other types of cabbage like Napa or Chinese, add bean sprouts or even zucchini noodles. You can also use broccoli or kale salad for a delicious touch.
- Sauces– For a sweet and salty kick, add some oyster sauce or black bean sauce. These aren’t keto friendly, however, so you can add some fish sauce and a tablespoon as well. Add brown sugar substitute.
