How to Make Egg Roll Bowls

  1. Make the sauce.
  2. In a *12-inch cast iron skillet, brown the pork to make the egg roll bowl filling.
  3. Warm the rice you made for this week’s meals (You made a bulk batch of rice for the fridge this week, right?) OR make a batch of quick-cook rice. Any brand of minute-cooking rice will be ready in under 10 minutes.
  4. Next, add veggies to the deliciously seasoned pork. Stir and cook the mixture until the veggies are just heated through. They should be tender and crisp, not mushy.
  5. Serve by creating beautiful egg roll *bowls with fluffy rice in the bottom. Top the rice with the savory egg roll filling and drizzle with my 5-Minute Stir Fry and Dipping Sauce. If you like, sprinkle some chopped cilantro and fried wonton strips over the top for an optional garnish.
