Delicious Instant Pot Egg Roll Bowls In Under 20 Minutes

Not only are these Instant Pot Egg Roll Bowls delicious and ready in under 20 minutes; they are also very low in carbs.  My kiddos finish the entire pot and ask for more every time I make them.  I am always looking for ways to recreate my family’s favorite restaurant foods in a way that is practical for our family and our busy schedule.  For the last couple of years, this has involved my Instant Pot a LOT!  I have made traditional egg rolls many times and love them.  Frying is such a mess, though.  It is messy and time consuming, so I set out to find an easier alternative for our family and have fallen in love.  

Delicious Instant Pot Egg Roll Bowls In Under 20 Minutes

It was so easy to make these egg roll bowls, I’m almost embarrassed to create a “recipe” and not just a how-to.  Ground pork works great for this recipe, breakfast sausage is also a delicious alternative.  Really, you can use any ground meat or meat substitute that you love.  I find ground pork and ground chicken are the best consistency for this recipe.  You can add whatever veggies you love.  Pineapple might even be a tasty addition to this recipe.  But, don’t take my word for it, get going on your own and let me know how you get creative with this recipe.

17 Easy Freezer Dump Meals For Your Instant Pot

If you’re like me, you find yourself scrambling around at 2 p.m. looking for something to put together for dinner.  Many times we just end up eating pizza or fast food.  I absolutely adore these freezer dump instant pot meals to really help cut down on the number of meals we eat out.  I try to make sure that I put a bag of frozen veggies into each meal or cook some veggies as a side.  This is a great way to get a home-cooked meal and save TONS of money each month.  I absolutely love my Instant Pot!  I have the 6 quart Instant Pot and it is plenty big for anything that I want to cook in it.  You can get one here.

17 Easy Freezer Dump Meals For Your Instant Pot

I made these meals this week when our local grocery store had boneless, skinless chicken breasts and thighs on sale for $1.37 a pound.  This is an amazing price for chicken.  Ground chuck was also on sale as well as frozen veggies.  So, I hit the meal-prep jackpot!  Each of these meals cost me less than $5 to make and that is for a family of 5!  Yes!  Five people can eat for less than $5 with the proper planning.  I had them all prepped and ready to put into the freezer within 3 hours.  Now, we have enough meals for 17 dinners.  In between these, I will usually cook something from scratch or order takeout.  Most of these can be easily converted to slow cooker recipes simply by adding about a cup of water and cooking on low for 6 hours.  I hope you enjoy these as much as our family does and it helps your money save big each month!  Please let me know which of these are your favorites or any other creative ways you may use them!  Take a look at all of the Instant Pots and accessories available now.

* * Adding your veggies into these freezer meals and cooking them with the meat will make your veggies very well done. If you like your veggies a little more firm, feel free to cook them on the stove top or adding them to your Instant Pot for the last 2 minutes of cooking, which is what I like to do, instead of adding them to the meals at the beginning.  It is super easy peasy to just keep the frozen veggies in the bag they come in from the store.  My family loves the veggies added into the meals 🙂  You can also cut the cooking time to 15 minutes and see if that works better for your family’s preference.

Crispy Egg Rolls

Crispy Egg Rolls

My family are huge fans of Asian cuisine.  I am the kind of person who loves to learn to cook anything my family likes.  I don’t like restaurants much nor do I like not knowing how to do anything LOL  So, I set out to learn how to make egg rolls a few years ago.  Much to my surprise; it was very easy!  A friend of mine gave me a super easy recipe and I have tweaked it to fit my family’s taste.  The cool thing about egg rolls is that you can add or take away pretty much anything you want!  You can even bake them with a little bit of modification.  Egg roll wrappers are also surprisingly inexpensive and easy to work with.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do around our house!  You can substitute just about any meat or veggie!

Gather your ingredients:

  • 2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 16 ounce bag coleslaw mix with shredded carrots
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag bean sprouts
  • 1/4 cup bottled teriyaki marinade
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 24 egg roll wraps
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • peanut oil for frying

egg rolls

Get to cookin’:

  1. Cook onion and garlic in the 2 tablespoons cooking oil until the onions are tender but not browned.
  2. Add the chicken, packaged coleslaw mix, bean sprouts, teriyaki sauce and soy sauce to the onions and garlic; mix well and continue to cook on medium-high for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat
  4. Heat 1 1/2 inches of vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan (I used my iron skillet).
  5. While oil heats, wrap about 1/4 cup of the chicken and cabbage mixture in egg roll wraps, rolling tightly and sealing edges with beaten egg.
  6. Fry until a deep golden brown (about 3-4 minutes on each side); drain on paper towels.  I don’t fry more than 3 at a time because they are done so quickly and easily burn.
  7. ENJOY!
