Keto crack slaw is one of our family’s quick dinners! If you’re wondering, “what’s is crack slaw?”, let me tell you that it’s also called low carb egg in a bowl. That’s because it tastes exactly like homemade egg rolls minus the wrapping and frying part. They are usually a great snack or starter for any Asian Style Meal. We’ll only make the filling and enjoy it as a whole meal. It’s a healthy and quick dinner that’s ready in 15 minutes — the perfect recipe for busy days. 

I love this recipe because it’s made with wholesome ingredients that perfectly fit in a low carb lifestyle.

If you are still not convinced to try this recipe, please note that crack slaw is also paleo, grain-free, dairy-free, and a Whole30 meal recipe. 

What are the Ingredients in Crack Slaw or Egg Roll in a Bowl?

If you’ve never made a crack bowl or egg roll in a bowl, you need to know that this recipe is s a stir fry made with ground beef, cabbage mix, and Asian spices. Out of convenience, I use the pre-shredded coleslaw mix because one thing I love is to uncomplicate my life and cut down the prep time.

The list of ingredients is short and here’s everything you’ll need:

  • coleslaw mix – You can also make a homemade coleslaw by chopping the white, red cabbage, and carrot. 
  • ground beef – Here, you can use any kind of ground meat you have on hand: chicken, pork, turkey. 
  • garlic & fresh ginger – A staple in Asian cuisine that gives this dish so much flavor. 
  • olive oil or sesame oil – I recommend using light sesame oil because it’s suitable for frying (it has a higher smoke point). It brings a toasty and nutty flavor. 
  • soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • hot sauce
  • vinegar
  • salt & pepper
  • green onions & sesame seeds

How To Make Egg Roll In a Bowl?

To make this Chinese inspired egg roll in a bowl or how I like to call it a healthy and easy version of it, you’ll need to stir-fry all the ingredients and season them well. The best part when cooking at home is that you can control what ingredients you put into the recipe. 

Here’s how to make easy egg roll in a bowl: 

  • Start by stir-frying the meat in a tablespoon of olive oil or sesame oil. The meat I used for this keto crack slaw is ground beef. Season it with salt and pepper. Once cooked, drain the extra fats and transfer to a bowl. Keep warm!
  • Sautee the freshly grated garlic and ginger. To bring out the incredible flavors, fry them in sesame oil for a few minutes, stirring constantly. 
  • Add the coleslaw mix. Reduce the heat and add the cabbage mix. Season with soy sauce, hot sauce, and vinegar.
  • Combine the cooked meat and sautéed cabbage.
  • Serve with sesame seeds, green onions, and extra hot sauce if desired.
