Ingredient notes

ingredients (labelled) for egg roll in a bowl
  • ground pork- you can use any type of ground meat including ground beef or ground turkey for this recipe. I chose ground pork because it pairs well with soy sauce, garlic and ginger.
  • slaw- feel free to use any bagged slaw including broccoli or kale slaw. Pictured above is classic cole slaw mix.
  • liquid soy seasoning- this is a lower carb and gluten-free alternative to soy sauce. You can use regular soy sauce but it will increase the number of carbs in the recipe.
  • monk fruit- this is a low carb sweetener that helps balance the saltiness of the liquid soy seasoning. Several readers have enjoyed this recipe without the monk fruit sweetener. If you are not on a low carb diet, you can add honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup in place.

Step by step directions

2. Cook pork- In a 12 inch non-stick skillet, cook the ground pork. Use a spatula to break it into small pieces, and stir/flip. Cook it for 7-10 minutes, until no longer pink. If there is a lot of grease in the pan, drain it before proceeding to the next step.
