Sweet vs. Spice
Be warned: this spicy egg roll bowl with chili sauce has quite the kick.
Of course, you can and should omit the jalapeno and spicy chili sauce if it’s too much. Or, just use a little bit of the sauce if the heat is too hot to handle!
Another, less-spicy option is to just use Chinese 5-spice and a bit of the sauce for less heat.
I tend to eat a lot of spicy foods, but I was feeling the heat with this one- and I loved it.
Here, I was inspired by Pinch of Yum’s 15-minute egg roll in a bowl. However, I wanted to lower the carb count and increase the heat.
How to make the egg roll in a bowl
First, you’ll want to add your sliced pork to the wok or large pan.
Next, mix in your other ingredients after about 5 minutes or when the pork is semi-cooked. Stir occasionally, until coleslaw mix is incorporated and getting soft.
Finally, you’ll serve up your egg roll in a bowl with some scallions and sweet & spicy sauce (if desired).
