Inside Out LC Eggroll

This dish has many names, from “keto crack” to “eggroll in a bowl” to “coleslaw crack.” I call mine inside out eggroll because that’s what it tastes like-the inside of a good, crunchy high carb eggroll fried to perfection but without all the carbs. For example, a normal little pork eggroll at a Chinese takeout restaurant has around 25 carbs-25 carbs! No thanks!

This recipe has anywhere between 4-5 net carbs per serving. If you’re like me and my husband and eat the entire recipe, double the carb count because it serves “4.” 

It’s EASY! I mean one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever made, and it’s very forgiving. You can substitute whatever low carb veggie you’d like and use any ground meat-beef, pork, turkey. I used Aldi’s grass-fed ground beef because it’s so good and very affordable at 4.99 a pound. The best part of this recipe is that you use a bag of already prepared coleslaw mix. I like the shredded kind in a 16 ounce bag. 

I used soy sauce and sriracha sauce, but you can always add a little splash of sesame oil and/or rice wine vinegar, I bet it’d give it a good flavor. But with just soy sauce and a little sriracha we thought we’d died and gone to heaven! A little sliced green onions on top is a nice touch too-I added and then had to reheat since hubby was a little late from work, but I think I’d wait and sprinkle them on next time at the end. I guess you could add sesame seeds, sliced almonds, etc. too. Adjust for any additional carbs.

Enjoy!
