Healthy Instapot Egg Roll in A Bowl AKA Crack Slaw

We love this recipe. I make it all the time. It's full of good for you veggies and very easy to make. I just recently learned how to make it so quickly in my pressure cooker. It helps you get in more vegetables and live a healthier lifestyle. It is really good if you are following a low carb lifestyle as well, or carb cycling and need a low carb meal.


Here's a video with some tips on how to make it in a pressure cooker, or on the stove. Also, some tips and topping ideas. Forgive me for being so distracted. My neighbor's dog was barking non-stop the entire time. Haha! The dog is normally quiet, but as soon as I set up to record, the dog was left outside and drove me bonkers! I cannot focus with a dog barking. Ugh ;)

Healthy Instapot Egg Roll in A Bowl AKA Crack Slaw


  • 1 small package lean cooked ground turkey - saute up with one largely diced onion in  2 tsp coconut oil, ghee, or sesame oil. Season meat with a tiny pinch of sea salt and a hefty shake of black pepper. and garlic powder. 
  • 1 tsp  Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced or 1-2 tsp of prepared garlic
  • 1 small head cabbage, sliced thin and chopped OR a bag of cabbage and onion slaw (or you can do half cabbage and half broccoli slaw)
  • 2 TBSP Low Sodium Soy Sauce OR Coconut aminos (coconut aminos gives it more of a sweetness) 
  • 1 tsp Chili sauce or sriracha sauce
  • approx 1 inch of Fresh Ginger, fresh grated. Optional but gives it a lot of fresh flavors
  • 2 cups cooked Brown Rice. Keep the rice on the side. Or cauliflower steam fresh rice bag.

Directions:

Set the pressure cooker to saute.

Brown the onions for a few minutes until opaque and golden. Add in lean ground meat and saute until cooked. Once cooked add in garlic and cook for just 1-2 min. Sprinkle with a TINY bit of salt and a hefty shake of pepper -- Go light on the salt because you will be using soy sauce.

Once the meat is cooked turn off the pressure cooker. Add in the cabbage slaw and the broccoli slaw, or just use cabbage slaw. Add 2 tbsp of soy sauce, chili sauce or sriracha, fresh ginger, 2 tbsp of water, and a tsp of sesame oil. Stir the mixture. 


Secure lid. Select manual and set time to 0 (yes zero minutes) and let it come to pressure. Once its done, release the steam and open up the pressure cooker. Make sure you are careful when you open the steam valve or you could burn yourself. 


Once it's done, Taste it and make sure it is seasoned well for your taste, adding more salt and pepper as needed. I love to top it with a small drizzle of honey, more sriracha sauce and a teaspoon of toasted sesame seeds. 

I like to allow each person to make it how they like it. 
Serve with brown rice (or cauliflower rice for low carb, carb cycling, or keto). 


Time Saving Tip! You could use what I call my master meat mix -- precooked/frozen meat/onion mix - you can use it from its frozen state or thaw it, break it up a little then mix it in with the mixture. If using frozen meat you do not need the 2 tbsp of water. 

I like to cook up a few pounds of ground meat and keep it in 1 lb portions in the freezer for a quick meal. You can make this, or tacos, or spaghetti on zoodles or noodles. It makes life so much easier to have these precooked.
