You guys, I have to tell you about this mind-blowing stir fry I made the other night – it was seriously the best thing ever! I was craving egg rolls but didn’t feel like wrapping all the filling individually. That’s when I remembered seeing this “egg roll in a bowl” recipe online.
I gathered up the ingredients – ground pork, cabbage, ginger, garlic, soy sauce…all the classic egg roll flavors. Threw it all in a skillet and within 20 minutes, bam! I had the most amazing egg roll experience without any work.
It was like all my favorite parts of an egg roll – the savory meat and crisp veg – but served in a big cozy bowl. The ginger and garlic really shine through, giving it that authentic Chinese takeout taste. Pro tip: a splash of sesame oil adds an extra layer of umami.
I served it over rice so it was like the ultimate egg roll bibimbap. So insanely satisfying! The best part was having leftovers for lunch the next day. I just reheated it in the microwave and it was still delicious.
Totally gonna be making this one again, especially on busy weeknights. It’s cheap, easy and extremely comforting. Don’t even get me started on the crispy wonton strips on top – total game changer. Think I found my new favorite go-to stir fry, folks!
You should definitely give this a try if you love Chinese food as much as me. Guaranteed to become part of your regular meal rotation! Let me know if you make it – I wanna hear all about it.

Ingredients You’ll Need
For the Stir-Fry:
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb ground pork
- 2-inch fresh ginger, minced
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
- 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp chili paste
- 16 oz coleslaw mix (preferably with thinly sliced carrots)
- Kosher salt, to taste (if needed)
- Cooked rice
- Thinly sliced green onions
- Wonton strips
- Heat the Pan: Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
- Cook the Meat: Toss in the ground pork, minced ginger, and garlic. Crumble the pork as it cooks until it’s fully cooked. Drain any excess liquid, if needed.
- Season: Sprinkle cornstarch and Chinese five-spice powder over the cooked pork. Give it a good stir to evenly coat the meat.

- Add Veggies: Introduce the coleslaw mix to the skillet. Toss everything together and cover with a lid for 2-3 minutes.
- Final Touch: Once the coleslaw turns bright green and slightly wilted, taste and season with kosher salt, if necessary.
- Serve: Dish it out over cooked rice. Garnish with sliced green onions and wonton strips, if you like.
- You can easily substitute ground pork with ground beef or turkey.
- Adjust the chili paste to your heat preference.
