Deconstructed Egg Roll

This might be one of my favorite meals to cook! It's so simple and absolutely delicious. I also love that you can choose what type of protein you want to add into it!

If you love Chinese food, you are going to love this dish. I mean, let's be honest -- we don't want to actually have to bite into a crispy egg roll shell, especially when we can just combine it all in a bowl or plate and and it tastes 100x better, right!?

Now, I'd say don't skip the wonton strips because they're going to add that crispiness that you might want, but I definitely skip the wonton strips because I think it's delicious without!

This is one of my favorite meals to cook up and have meal prepped for the week. The meal heats up very good and tastes even better the next few days!


  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil

  • 1 Pound Spicy Sausage (You can use regular or beef too!)

  • Fresh Ginger, or Ground Ginger -- whichever you prefer

  • 4 Cloves Garlic, Minced.

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese Five Spice

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce OR liquid aminos

  • 2 teaspoons chili paste (I use siracha)

  • 16 ounce coleslaw mix

  • Salt, as needed

  • Cooked Rice, for serving

  • Sliced green onions for topping

  • Wonton strips for topping


  1. Warm the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the sausage, ginger, and garlic to the skillet, crumbling the meat as it cooks until the pork has cooked through. Drain any liquids from the pan, if necessary.

  2. Sprinkle with cornstarch, five-spice. Stir to coat. Add the soy sauce, sesame oil, and chili paste. Continue cooking until the sauce forms, about 2 minutes. Add the cabbage, toss to mix and cover with a lid for 2-3 minutes.

  3. When the cabbage is bright green and slightly wilted, taste and add salt, only as needed. Serve over rice. Sprinkle with green onions and top with wonton strips, if desired. Enjoy!
