Egg Roll Noodle Bowl

We love Asian egg rolls, but they can be challenging to make. Simplify everything with this deconstructed egg roll made on the stovetop and served in a bowl. —Courtney Stultz, Weir, Kansas

      This was excellent, and it was even better as leftovers two days later. The cabbage didn't get wilty at all. I used ground turkey because that was what I had, and next time I'll use fewer noodles. It was so flavorful my cat walked around the table sniffing for tidbits, and she's usually never interested in human food.

      This was SO GOOD! I loved how easy it was to whip up on a weeknight. Nice flavor. I will definitely make this one again.

      I love Chinese food, but hate the fat and calories that come with it. This satisfies the need for the flavors, but is much healthier than eating an egg roll! I will definitely be making this again. VFE

      Pretty good! My family of four (including one kid who does not like Asian food) really liked this. I did not have sesame oil and I used more soy sauce and ground ginger than the recipe called for. Very flavorful. We all added Chinese Mustard and more soy sauce when eating. I will definitely make this recipe again but I'll be buying pre-shredded cabbage to save time to make this a super quick and easy weeknight dinner.

      This was ok. Mine had no sauce either. Next time i’d add more garlic, more 5-spice(i added that)

      This is one of my husband's favorite dishes and I've made this dish numerous times since we first tried it. I use the shredded coleslaw that includes shredded carrots and add additional shredded carrot until it "looks right." I also add a little more ground ginger than called for, as we like the additional flavor. I now keep rice noodles on hand just for this recipe. I also save some time by browning a full pound of ground pork ahead of time in the sesame oil, separating it into two 1/2-pound packages and freezing it (just remember to label the package so as to not confuse it for browned ground beef). This dish goes together so quickly with these short cut hacks and you have a delicious alternative to time-consuming conventional egg rolls. Delicious flavor!!

      This was super good and so easy with the coleslaw! My husband, friends and I love egg rolls but I totally lack the skill to roll them. I used lo mein noodles because that's what I had on hand and I added more soy sauce when I served it. The only other addition I think I would make is add something crunchy on top like a fried egg roll wrapper. Great recipe will make again.

      Giving it a few extra stars only for a change I had to make...My rice noodles looked a lot different than in the video and I think that made a huge difference, unfortunately.

      Really does taste like an egg roll! If you miss the crunch, you can always add some fried wonton strips to your bowl, but the recipe is perfect and delicious as written. Super simple to make. Great for busy nights when you don't have lots of energy to cook or need to get the kids fed fast.

      FANTASTIC!! I use red chili sesame oil to spice it up a bit. Other than that, I follow the recipe just as it’s written and have never had it turn out less than phenomenal! My husband likes to throw a few chow mein noodles on his for a bit more texture/crunch. Such a family favorite!!
