How to make an egg roll in a bowl
- Ground beef – can also use ground turkey or ground pork
- Sesame oil
- Rice vinegar – replace with white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar, plus ¼ teaspoon sugar
- Garlic – one teaspoon minced, which is about 1-2 fresh cloves
- Ground ginger – be sure to use the spice, not fresh ginger
- Soy sauce – or coconut aminos if gluten-free or low-carb
- Cabbage – a small one, about 1 pound, should be enough
- Carrots – grated
- Green onions
- Sesame seeds
- Boiled eggs – this recipe uses soft-boiled, but you can make hard-boiled if you prefer
TIP: If you’re using a hard-boiled egg, you can cut it half now. But if your eggs have runny centers, wait to cut them in half until you are ready to eat.
- Shredded cabbage: If you don’t want to slice your own, you can buy a bag of shredded cabbage instead. Look for one that is at least 10 ounces to make sure there’s enough for this meal prep recipe.
- Make ground beef ahead of time: If you make a lot of recipes with ground beef, you can save time and money by making a large batch and storing for later. Simply brown it, then cool and divide into smaller portions. Store in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days, then warm in the pan before continuing this recipe. You can also freeze cooked ground beef up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before using.
- On the stove – Bring some water to boil in a saucepan, then lower to a simmer. Gently add the eggs to the pan, one at a time. Cook for 6 minutes
- Instant Pot – Add 1 cup of water to the pot, then add the eggs on top of the steamer rack insert. Cook on manual for 3 minutes with a Quick Release.

- In a large skillet, add ground beef over medium-high heat. Season with salt and black pepper. Cook and break it up with a spatula, until it is cooked through and no longer pink. It’s about 7 minutes. Using a spoon remove the fat if there is some.
- Pous sesame oil and rice vinegar into the skillet. Stir well.
- Add garlic, ginger, soy sauce (or coconut aminos), cabbage and carrots to the skillet. Mix everything well and close the skillet with a lid. Cook for about 5-7 more minutes, or until cabbage is wilted. Stir occasionally.
- Remove skillet from the heat. Stir in green onions and top with sesame seed.

- Hold off cutting the egg in your bowl until ready to enjoy.
- Feel free to swap the soft-boiled egg for a hard-boiled egg if you prefer.
- You can save time by purchasing pre-shredded cabbage.
- To store: Store the egg roll in a bowl for up to 4 days in the fridge in an airtight container.
- To reheat: You can reheat the bowls in the microwave.
- To freeze: I only recommend freezing the cooked beef as the cabbage won't hold up well. Freeze the beef in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
