How Many Carbs are in Regular Egg Rolls?

According to Nutritionix, a single egg roll can contain a whopping 22g net carbs! That means that only one standard egg roll will knock people mostly or fully out of ketosis. And let’s be real here… who eats a single egg roll?!

How Many Carbs are in a Keto Egg Roll?

To lower the carbs in an egg roll, the keto version is a deconstructed egg roll in a bowl. Instead of the 22g net carbs in a regular egg roll, a keto egg roll (in a bowl) should have far fewer carbs so you can stay in ketosis. This keto egg roll recipe contains only 3g net carbs per serving.

What is Inside of a Keto Egg Roll?

It will have:

  • Veggies like shredded cabbage, carrot (you can omit the carrot to lower the carbs, but I find that this makes it taste less authentic), and green onions
  • Ground pork
  • Seasonings and sauces like garlic powder, fresh ginger, tamari (wheat-free soy sauce), and rice vinegar

All of these are added to the bowl after they have been fried.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 13 minutes
Total Time: 23 minutes
Servings: 6
Calories: 355kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 lb. spicy bulk pork sausage
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 cups green cabbage shredded
  • 1 medium carrot shredded
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh ginger finely minced
  • 2 tbsp green onions chopped
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds for garnish

Instructions

  • Heat a large high-sided pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking the sausage into small pieces as it cooks. Cook for approximately 5-6 minutes until sausage is no longer pink, then remove from heat and carefully drain excess grease from the pan.
  • Return pan or skillet to heat. Add a little water and scrape up brown bits from the bottom of the pan with a spatula. Reduce the heat to medium and add shredded cabbage, carrots, garlic powder, sesame oil, ginger, and green onions. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until the cabbage wilts and the carrot softens (approximately 4-5 minutes).
  • Add rice vinegar and tamari and stir to combine. Cook another 1-2 minutes or until heated through, then remove from heat.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl or platter and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

Notes

If you like a hint of sweetness, feel free to add a little keto-friendly sweetener to taste during step 3.
If you don't want to use pork, you can substitute with your ground meat of choice. Keep in mind that you will need to season it to taste if it is plain instead of spicy.
