My Love of this Thai Egg Roll Bowl knows no bounds

I’ve got to level with everyone, I love Thai food! It’s always been one of my favorite cuisines and since going Keto I haven’t had any. I’ve seen lot of recipes for egg roll in a bowl or it’s much more intense name “crack slaw” if you’re unfamiliar it’s basically the filling from an egg roll sauteed in a pan and served in a bowl, kinda similar to moo shu without the pancakes. I wanted to come up with my own twist on the recipe. Thats when I came up with the idea to make a Thai “peanut” sauce version. This recipe definitely exceeded expectation and will be added to my Keto meal prep Arsenal for sure.

I used ground pork for this version but you could substitute, ground beef, sausage, turkey or chicken .I’ve even substituted small shrimp and it was outstanding.

Nobody Likes Mushy Cabbage

The biggest key in my mind is to not overlook the cabbage. Especially if you intend on portioning for meal prep. Browning off the meat then simmering the sauce then adding the veggies last helps prevent the cabbage from turning to mush. You really only need to cook the cabbage for a few minutes before it’s done and can be portioned out. This also keeps the colors bright and beautiful instead of that unappetizing green that cabbage can turn into.

The sauce may not be completely traditional. However, using the almond butter instead of peanut butter still provides that nutty flavor. When combined with the spicy sambal oelek and coconut aminos you’ll be pleasantly surprised how fantastic this sauce is. This sauce can be used for plenty of other things like pouring over veggies or chicken. You could even make a spicy Thai “noodle” dish with some zucchini noodles.
