Egg rolls. That crunchy outside texture packed full of a little sweet but savory cabbage and sausage mixture. Delicious if you ask me 🙂 But if I have learned anything in this blogging adventure is people want new innovative recipes! If you are one of “them” that is on a mission to find new recipes for your family, then you are definitely gonna wanna pin, share, save, email, or whatever you do to save this 2 Way Inside Out Egg Roll Skillet recipe.
I absolutely love it when we come together in the kitchen and share recipes! Dinnertime can be so many things to people, for some its fun, and for others it is not. So if we just share our struggles, recipes, wins, and losses with each other we can take over the world (okay world might be a little extreme).
Even if you are thinking I have nothing good to share, or all my recipes are the same ‘ol same ‘ol boring recipes, I can promise you that is not true! Someone out there is looking for your “boring” recipes, but what you don’t realize is it really could be that simple unique dish someone else has been looking for!
Anyways, I was inspired by this recipe from a follower who has been ranting and raving about how good it was, so I did what I do and set out to make my own version. Pretty much the same as the recipe she shared with me except not only can you do it stove method, but I have created an instant pot way too 🙂 If you don’t like your cabbage to be cooked then you can 1 of 2 things. Cook half the cabbage and add in the raw uncooked at the end for some added crunch, or #2, don’t cook any cabbage and just add in the sausage mixture and seasonings atop your raw uncooked cabbage.
Another great crunchy option you can do is add in cashews and/or Chow Mein Noodles or uncooked Ramen noodles for an extra added crunch.
- 2 # ground pork or breakfast sausage (if you are using ground pork add in a ½-1 t. sage, cumin, coriander)
- 5 T garlic, minced
- 2 T. ground ginger (fresh or dried)
- 1 bag of coleslaw mixture or about ½ to ¾ head of cabbage chopped, depending on how much cabbage to meat ratio you like
- 2 T. sesame oil
- 2 T. soy sauce/ coconut aminos
- Green Onions, optional for garnish
- cashews, optional
- Chow Mein/Ramen noodles, optional
- Wonton strips, optional
- brown meat and in spices if necessary (if using instant pot use your saute function)
- add in garlic and ginger
- add in cabbage mixture and stir all together. If doing on the stove-top just keep cooking and stirring until cabbage is to your liking of softness. If doing instant pot, go ahead and lock in the lid and make sure the vent is closed and hit manual for about 5-10 minutes depending on how soft you want your cabbage. After time is up do a quick release and open lid.
- Next, go ahead and stir in your sesame oil and soy sauce.
- This is where you can add in your raw uncooked cabbage if you would like more substance.
- Lastly, top with cashews or won-ton strips and Enjoy
