Reviews for Egg Roll Noodle Bowl
"This was unfortunately horribly under seasoned. I ended up adding more soy sauce, five spice seasoning, garlic salt, more soy sauce....you get the idea. I really wanted to like it & it's a decent starting place for veggies/noodles, but seasoning-wise ---I would not recommend."
"So pleasantly surprised by this recipe. It was better than I expected. I initially thought the ingredients did not allow for enough 'sauce' but it is so flavorful and it was indeed enough. I did, however, deglaze the pan after cooking the pork with about 1/4 cup of chicken stock because the spices got concentrated on the bottom of the pan. That didn't create more 'sauce' because it evaporated - just wanted to get the good bits off the bottom of the pan. But that I used leftover pork roast (cubed up) instead of ground pork. I also used more liquid aminos instead of the soy sauce and added another tablespoon (it needed more of that ingredient in my mind). Next time I make it I will probably use 2 oz. of the noodles instead of 4 (just personal preference - I would like more cabbage ratio than noodle). I did add one egg towards the end and scrambled it in the pan - didn't need it necessarily but I liked the added richness it provided. I added some chopped cilantro on top as I served it. This is a keeper and for me that's a big deal. I rarely go by recipes but I followed this one to the "T" and it was great."
"Really needed more sauce. I added half a jar of orange sauce to it. Otherwise it would have been very bland. Will probably not make again."
"So easy and quick to make and very good tasting! I used pre-packaged coleslaw mix to save time. This recipe is a definite keeper, and all my family, even my picky eaters, have requested me to make it again!"
"So simple and delicious! I substituted leftover pan-fried tofu and one lightly scrambled egg in place of the ground pork, used pre-packaged coleslaw mix and about 1.5 cups of shredded carrot and then topped off the finished produce with a sprinkling of peanuts and Sriracha sauce. I love someone's idea of using spicy mustard and/or sweet and sour sauce in the future! Will definitely be making this again!"
"Didn't taste much like an Egg Roll but did have really nice flavors. I used the slaw mix as someone suggested. This was easy to make for a week night meal. Not a lot of soy sauce so good on sodium. Will make again."
"Made this last night to bring for lunch today. It was awesome! I used Cole slaw mix and will be using that from now on. Turned out just perfect."
"I also decied that coleslaw was the way to go. Unfortunately the Vietnamese egg rolls my sister-in- law taught me how to make use a rice "thread noodle", so that's what I thought this recipe was calling for. Pretty sure they're not the same. Still it has great flavor. But I am also thinking maybe a side of fried wonton would make it a 5 star."
"Made this for our family dinner. the three of us gave it as a keeper. I did substitute coleslaw mix for the cabbage, and the two large carrots were a bit too much, will cut those back a bit. This goes in our file of keepers, I am on a somewhat restricted diet following heart surgery, left out the salt and used low sodium soy sauce. Cargram, my mom used the sweet & sour sauce, she was very pleased with all, but she did request fried wonton wrappers next time ??"
