Egg rolls are a dime a dozen – every take-out place has them. But there IS an art to a great egg roll: it’s crunchy, savory and light. Not overly breaded or oily. And that’s exactly what you’ll learn to make with this entree-sized egg roll bowl – totally free from carbalicious guilt. (BTW: Sambal is an Indonesian hot sauce, a lot like Thailand’s Sriracha. If you don’t have any, no problem. Just substitute with your favorite hot sauce!)
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
- 1 pound 90% or leaner ground beef
- 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, minced
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 (12-ounce) bag broccoli slaw
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced, divided
For the sauce
- ¼ cup coconut aminos (or low-sodium soy sauce)
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
- ½ teaspoon sambal oelek
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- Cooked brown rice or cauliflower rice
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and break into crumbles using a spatula or wooden spoon. Cook until no pink is visible, 5-6 minutes. Add the mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook until mushrooms begin to soften, 2-3 minutes. (Mushrooms are very absorbent and will act as a sponge and soak up all the oil and dry up the pan and its contents. Add a small amount of additional oil, if needed, to prevent pan from getting too dry and burning.
- Reduce the heat to medium and add in the broccoli slaw and all but 1-2 tablespoons of the green onions for garnish. Stir into the beef mixture and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together all the sauce ingredients. Pour over the beef mixture and allow to simmer for 10-12 minutes. Serve with brown rice or cauliflower rice and garnish with reserved green onions.
-To make vegetarian and vegan, swap the beef for organic extra firm crumbled tofu. Pat dry before using.
-Other add-in options are edamame, diced carrots, cabbage, etc. This is a great dish to make when trying to utilize extra vegetables in your fridge.
