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
Prep the ingredients
First, measure out all of your ingredients because this recipe comes together quickly.
You can also make the boiled eggs now or while everything else is cooking.
Cook the egg roll mixture
Brown the ground beef in a large skillet, seasoning with salt and pepper. Once that’s done, spoon out any fat. Stir the sesame oil and rice vinegar in with the meat.
Next, mix in the following ingredients: garlic, ground ginger, soy sauce, cabbage, and carrots. Cover with a lid and cook until the cabbage is wilted.


Build the bowls
Stir in the green onion and sesame seeds. Then, divide evenly between your meal prep containers. Top with a whole boiled egg.

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.

Recipe notes

  • 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.
Soft-boiled is the technical term for a boiled egg with a runny center. It’s easy to make soft boiled eggs, and you can do it on the stove or in an Instant Pot.
  • 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.
Once the eggs are done, transfer immediately to an ice bath to stop the cooking process. Remove when cooled, then peel.
If you’re making this for a crowd, you can definitely double the recipe! You should also try my Brussels Sprouts Bacon Salad and Easy Roasted Potato Salad as a side dish!
