I was paroosing Pinterest since I needed some inspiration. Chicken is getting pretty boring as the main protein ( to me anyway, the husband can eat it everyday). I also did not want to go to the store just yet to get more ingredients. So what do to with some spicy sausage, half a head of cabbage and some carrots……
Most recipes say ground pork or pork sausage but the sausage being spicy was more satisfying for me. I also added eggs because it isn’t an egg roll without some eggs. This is also a low carb option since it hardly contains any carbs. But if you need the extra crunch you can add some chow mein noodles or fried wonton strips.
This takes about an hour to make including the prep of ingredients. It all depends on how crunchy or soft you want your cabbage and/or carrots to be. I only have a small hand grater so the carrots almost disappear( I have a ninja but didn’t feel like getting it and cleaning it up later).
- 1 large deep pan
- 1 small frying pan
- Knife/ cutting board
- Spatula or slotted spoon
- Wisk or fork
- 2 small and 1 medium bowl
- Oven on medium
- 1lb of pork sausage
- 1 medium onion diced
- 4 cloves of garlic chopped
- 4 cups of cabbage cut into small striped ( it doesn’t have to be perfect )
- 1-1/2 cup of shredded carrots
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup of soy sauce
- 1 tsp of soy sauce
- 1/4 tsp of ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp of onion powder
- 2 tbs of olive oil
- 1/2 cup of water
- Mix 1/2 cup of soy sauce, garlic powder, onion powder and ginger. Let sit until ready.
- Add tablespoon of oil to the pan and add onion cook down until they start to get translucent.
- Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes stirring constantly so the garlic doesn’t burn.
- Add sausage and breakup as it cooks.
- Once it almost all the red is gone , take out some of the grease ( I took out about 6 tablespoons) and add cabbage, carrots, soy sauce mixture and water. Mix it well.
- Cook for 10-15 minutes depending how soft you want the cabbage.
- While the mix is cooking, mix the eggs with 1 tsp of soy sauce and cook in the small frying pan.
- Do not over cook the eggs, they get fluffy, chop up and place to the side.
- Once the mix is cooked down to your liking add the chopped eggs and mix in.
- Dig in!
Some of the recipes I read used a bag of coleslaw mix and low sodium soy sauce. I didn’t add any additional salt to it and I never find that coleslaw mix has enough carrot in it. Variations are endless.
