Egg Roll in a Bowl

This is a lot like the filling I put in my Egg Rolls with ground meat instead of chicken breast. Since it is not in a wrapper, it is low carb.

I got this recipe from recently and I loved it. We’ve made it a few times already and I still really like it. :) It is also really easy to make. Much easier to make than egg rolls, too. :)

Start by heating sesame oil in a large skillet.

I add one shredded medium carrot to my sliced cabbage because that is what is in a package of coleslaw veggies. :) You don’t have to if you don’t want to, it’ll be less carbs without it.Add the Tamari sauce or soy sauce, and rice wine vinegar. I don’t have rice wine vinegar so I use the seasoned rice  vinegar I do have. :)
