First of all, I was proud of myself for actually planning meals for the entire week and grocery shopping all at once for the week. Woohoo…that never happens. As I was planning meals, I was sick of the same ol’ dinner options so I decided to try a few new recipes this week.
First up is this ‘egg roll in a bowl’ that I keep hearing people talk about. Sounded good to me but I wasn’t sure if everyone else was going to like it. Thankfully it was a success! So before days went by I decided I should probably write down how I made it so I can remember for next time, since it was a hit!
I had looked over several different recipes and kind of came up with my own from tidbits of each. Sorry for the lack of picture, you’ll just have to trust me that it was yummy! Here’s what I came up with… I used turkey sausage…I know friends who have used pork sausage or ground beef or even chicken. I served it with (brown) rice.
Egg Roll in a Bowl
2 bags of coleslaw mix
1 lb ground sausage (or turkey sausage)
1 onion, diced
1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp fresh minced ginger OR 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 Tbsp soy sauce
3 tsp apple cider vinegar
Salt & pepper
1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
Brown sausage in a large pan; when nearly done, add in onion, carrots, garlic, and ginger.
Cook until carrots and onion tender. Then add in the chicken broth to deglaze pan.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Add in the coleslaw mix, stir. Add in soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, and sesame oil. Stir.
Cover and cook 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cabbage has reached desired tenderness.
