This easy Spring Roll in a Bowl recipe is one of my favourite keto dinners to make when I'm short on time. A tasty, nutritious and low-carb meal made from scratch in less than 20 minutes!

How to Make Keto Spring Roll in a Bowl

Making gluten-free and low-carb spring roll in a bowl only takes a few minutes! You won't need any wrappers which makes the whole process not just keto-approved but also a lot easier.

You'll start by browning some ground pork with garlic, and then adding all of the sauces, vinegar and tomato paste. I used pork but you can use any ground meat in this recipe — pork, chicken, turkey and beef work best.

Once the meat is browned and flavoured, you'll toss in some mushrooms, shredded cabbage, carrot and bean sprouts. I like mine crisp-tender so I only cook it for a few minutes. When done, I then drizzle in some extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle the meal with freshly chopped spring onions. That's it!

Is Oyster Sauce Keto?

This recipe uses oyster sauce which is not what I'd call a "squeaky clean keto" ingredient. Although it's low in carbs, it does contain some ingredients you may want to be aware of: sugar, soy and starches. Unless you are allergic or intolerant to some of these ingresinets, you won't need to avoid it as we are only using a small amount. If you want to skip this ingredient, simply use fish sauce or use more coconut aminos instead.

So what is oyster sauce? As the name suggests, oyster sauce is made from oysters and it's commonly used in Asian cuisine. It's a mixture of caramelised oyster juices, salt, sugar (although a small amount), and sometimes soy sauce (or tamari sauce if gluten-free), plus cornstarch which is used for thickening.

  2. Place minced garlic in a skillet greased with avocado oil (or ghee). Cook for a minute until fragrant.
  3. Add ground pork (I used 5% ground pork). Use a spatula to break into pieces. Cook for a minute or two, and then add the coconut aminos, oyster sauce (or use fish sauce), vinegar, tomato paste, and Erythritol.
  4. Cook on medium-high for 3 to 4 minutes until browned. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes. Keto Spring Roll in a Bowl
  5. Add the shredded cabbage, carrot and bean sprouts. At first this will seem like a lot but the cabbage will cook down. Using tongs, toss while cooking.
  6. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until the cabbage is wilted and crisp tender. Take off the heat and stir in the olive oil. Optionally, season with salt and pepper to taste. Keto Spring Roll in a Bowl
  7. To serve, sprinkle with spring onion. To store, let it cool down and refrigerate for up to 4 days. Reheat before serving. You can stir in the spring onion before placing in the fridge or add it just before serving. Keto Spring Roll in a Bowl

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Yummy!  Not quite what I was expecting, somehow, but still very flavourful and satisfying.  And best of all, my non-keto hubby and son loved it - they had it with noodles but were quite happy to eat leftovers without once the noodles ran out!
(We decided to call it Chinese Bolognese as the tomato & mince combination made us think of Bolognese!)

Love that! I'm glad you enjoyed
