Egg Roll Stir Fry

Featured on:



This is one of those lovely finds on Pinterest.  I love, love, love egg rolls!  Did I mention I love egg rolls yet?  This recipe is all the yummy parts of an egg roll without the deep frying or wrapper so it is much better for you.

When I found this recipe for Egg Roll Stir Fry on Once a Mom...Always a Cook I knew it was going to be a hit recipe in our house.  It smells fantastic and is the perfect dish when craving those horribly unhealthy deep fried pieces of amazing goodness.



Egg Roll Stir Fry adapted from Once a Mom...Always a Cook
1 lb Ground Beef (you can use turkey, chicken, or pork too)
1 Small Head of Cabbage, cut into shreds
1 Bunch Bok Choy (or baby bok choy if you prefer), sliced thin
1 Cup Carrots, diced very small
1/2 Red Onion, diced very small
5 Cloves of Garlic, minced
1/2 inch Grated Ginger Root
1/2 tsp Granulated Garlic (or garlic powder)
3 TBS Sesame Oil
1/4 Cup Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
2 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper

  • Brown the ground meat with the garlic, carrots, and onion
  • Drain fat then add ginger root, soy sauce, sesame oil, cider vinegar, sugar, granulated garlic, and black pepper
  • Toss in the cabbage and bok choy then make sure everything is coated well
  • Cover and cook on medium-low until the cabbage is wilted and bok choy is cooked about 6-10 minutes
This makes a lot!  I divided it out into 8 separate servings and analyzed the recipe.  I was surprised at how few calories were in these huge servings, but there are tons of veggies in it so I am sure that helps.  This is definitely a dish you can customize, maybe add some bean sprouts or bamboo shoots.  Take away the bok choy if you prefer.  Have fun and enjoy :)

I think this would be perfect with some sweet and sour sauce or some chinese spicy mustard drizzled on top too!  I will definitely give that a try next time!

  10. Thanks for linking up with KIK - this one looks like fun - we need to branch out a bit and try some bok-choy! ;)

    1. We love bok choy and it is considered a super food! Baby bok choy is a little more tender if that's an issue, but definitely give it a try. It's an excellent source for b vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin c, fiber, and better for absorbing iron and calcium than even spinach!

  16. Oh yum! I LOVE egg rolls too. But I really like the wrapper, so I might need something crispy on the side. :) I'm going to have to pin this recipe so I remember. Thanks for sharing at Pin-ed it, Made it!

    1. The Bok Choy and Cabbage still have some crunch, but you could probably top it with some chow mein noodles or add some water chestnuts for more crunch and still keep it healthy!
