Meatball Egg Roll in A Bowl

This Meatball Egg Roll in a Bowl meal is super quick to make, 30 minutes or less! And a bonus, I use Simek’s mini meatballs! The perfect easy stash to keep in the freezer. I LOVE miniature foods and these work perfectly in this dish. Their regular sized beef or turkey meatballs would also work great in this dish.

This dish is perfect for a weeknight meal. A few pantry staples, a little chopping, and some packaged veggies and meatballs is what you’ll need. Other than the cutest meatballs ever, I think the wonton strips at the end are my favorite. They add such a nice crunch, and really give it that egg roll vibe.

Everything is cooked in one pan. Make sure to use a deep and large pot. Start by sautéing the onions, garlic, ginger and meatballs together in the sesame oil. Then the other liquid ingredients followed by the cabbage and water chestnuts. It seems like a lot of cabbage when you first add it, but it wilts down by almost half.

The mayo/sriracha drizzle is definitely not to be skipped. It adds a nice creamy, zippy flavor to balance out the salty crispy ingredients in the rest of the dish. I also use it on my breakfast fried rice!

If you’re a fan of Asian flavors then you’ve got to try this dish. It actually makes good leftovers too. As long as the cabbage doesn’t get over-cooked up front, it reheats well the next day. Just add a drizzle of sauce and fresh wonton strips!
