This egg roll bowl takes advantage of Jimmy Dean pork maple sausage, which gives the dish a hint of sweetness to balance the savory flavors of traditional Asian fare. Turn up the heat with Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, and you’ve got yourself a super flavorful (and very colorful) homemade Chinese meal that is both satisfying and super healthy.

Here’s your step-by-step guide:

How to make a Maple Pork Egg Roll Bowl

 

Cabbage cole slaw, broccoli slaw, green onions, garlic and fresh minced ginger.

First, slice and dice all your veggies in advance.

You’ll need green onions, garlic, and fresh ginger (or the handy fresh ginger paste that comes in a tube). My recipe calls for a couple of cups of broccoli slaw which gives the egg roll bowl a slight crunch alongside the more tender cabbage once it all cooks down.

Mix soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil and Sriracha hot chili sauce.

In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame seed oil, and Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce. Use 1 teaspoon of Sriracha for just a hint of heat. You can always add more later for garnish if you want an extra kick.

Brown the pork maple sausage over medium heat.

Next, brown your Jimmy Dean pork maple sausage over medium heat until cooked through, and keep that little bit of sausage grease in the skillet–It’s going to give your egg roll bowl some serious flavor!

Be sure to use your largest skillet because here come all those veggies.

Stir fry egg roll ingredients with sausage.

Now add in all of your vegetables and your sauce mixture. Use tongs for easier stirring until the cabbage softens and becomes more manageable.

Continue cooking over medium heat, stirring often, until your cabbage is softened and your broccoli slaw is crisp-tender. This will take about 10 minutes.

Remove from heat and serve with sliced green onion. If you like it hot, a nice Sriracha drizzle will certainly warm it up while adding another pop of color to this beautiful dish. Grab your chopsticks and dig in!

    1. It is! Even the boys (who claim not to like sausage or vegetables) were hovering around the kitchen after they smelled it cooking. They said they liked it because they “couldn’t taste the vegetables.” It’s a new favorite around here.
