No one can deny that egg rolls are delicious. However, traditional egg rolls at most Chinese restaurants are off-limits on a keto diet because they contain a fried pastry shell, which contains gluten and more carbs than you need for the day!

You could always eat the insides only out of the egg roll or you could make your own at home and save yourself the trouble.

My keto egg roll in a bowl recipe takes all the good ingredients out of an egg roll and serves them in the convenience of a bowl. You won’t get messy eating it and you can control your ingredients!

Pork is a good source of fats to help fuel your ketogenic diet while providing virtually no carbs. A 100-gram serving of this lean ground meat contains 297 calories, 20 grams of fat, 0 grams of carbs, and 25.69 grams of protein (1). 

It also contains 21 different vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A and D, various B vitamins, selenium, zinc, iron, potassium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and calcium. 

Be sure to go with a brand of ground pork that is organic and free from hormones, antibiotics, nitrates, and harmful preservatives. Your butcher should have a fresh cut. You can also use ground beef too (see my beef crack slaw recipe).

This recipe also calls for cabbage and bell peppers. Cabbage has been shown to possess antimicrobial properties to help boost immunity and fight infections (2).

Research shows that cabbage can also be used to help treat stomach ulcers. It’s a good source of glutamine and sulforaphanes, which are likely responsible for the plant’s healing properties. Cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables are also known for their ability to help fight cancer (3). 

Bell peppers are a great source of vitamin C, which contains antioxidant abilities in the body to help fight the common cold (4). They also supply fiber, which helps regulate blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

In place of sugary sauce, my recipe calls for keto-friendly coconut aminos, vinegar, sesame oil, and various herbs and spices as natural flavoring agents.

How to Make Low Carb Egg Roll in a Bowl with Pork

Prep the vegetables by chopping the onion, bell pepper, and cabbage. Some people might buy store-bought coleslaw mix package (usually contains carrot) to save time, but make sure to check if there’s any non-keto ingredients in there.

Add olive oil or sesame oil to a wok or pan. I prefer the toasted sesame oil because it adds a unique flavor to Asian dishes. Brown the pork on medium heat. You can use ground beef, ground chicken or ground turkey instead of pork if you prefer. Then, add the minced garlic, chili flakes (red pepper flakes), and ground ginger (or minced fresh ginger). Season with salt and pepper.

Pour the vinegar and coconut aminos into the pan and stir for three minutes or until the meat is cooked all the way through. Some people might use low sodium soy sauce, but coconut aminos is a better keto option.

Add the chopped veggies to the pan and stir fry together. Stir and cook until the veggies are soft but not too soft. You may need to add some water or bone broth if the mixture is too dry to avoid burning. Don’t cook too long, we want the vegetables crunchy. You can add a teaspoon of rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar in for a hint of sour taste too, but it’s optional.

Serve in a bowl with toasted sesame seeds, chopped green onions and coriander. If you like it spicy, add some chili sauce.

Vegetable Mix

  • 2 ½ cup cabbage shredded
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 onion small, chopped into slivers



  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • green onion/ coriander chopped optional


  • Peel and chop the onion. Slice the bell pepper into ribbons and chop the cabbage leaves into fine pieces.
  • Heat the sesame oil (or olive oil) in a wok or a large frying pan if a wok is unavailable. Fry the ground pork in the heated oil on medium heat. Toss in the minced garlic, chili flakes, and ground ginger (or fresh grated ginger). Adjust the taste with some salt and pepper. Gently pour vinegar and coconut aminos into the pan. Keep stirring for 3 minutes to separate the pork pieces apart and cook the meat faster.
  • Throw all of the chopped veggies into the cooked meat. Fold altogether to mix. Stir continuously to season the veggies and to brown the veggies a bit. If it seems too dry, add some bone broth (or water) and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes. Don't overcook the veggies, otherwise they will become too soft and soggy. You want a little bit of crunchiness.
  • Top with the toasted sesame seeds. Add more salt and black pepper as necessary. Turn off the heat so as not to overcook the vegetables. Garnish with freshly chopped spring onion or coriander. Serve in a bowl.



*If you want to reduce the net carbs further, use less onion and spices.
