I made some adjustments to the flavor profile with this skillet egg roll recipe, and it turned out amazing. Serve this budget-friendly Asian dish for dinner with your favorite side dishes.

Recipe Notes

  • The original recipe called for Napa cabbage and shredding your own carrots, but it's easier to use a pre-shredded coleslaw mix instead.
  • For a vegetarian meal, try substituting the turkey with a bag of riced cauliflower mixed with peas and carrots.
  • You could use garlic paste instead of fresh garlic cloves and ginger paste instead of fresh ginger root.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Coat the bottom of a frying pan with olive oil and sesame seed oil on medium heat. (Sesame oil can be overpowering, so start with a little. You can add more later.) When warm, add the ground turkey, garlic and ginger paste. 
  2. Just before the turkey is fully cooked, add the coleslaw mix. Stir. (If it seems dry, you can add a bit more sesame seed oil and stir.) 
  3. When the cabbage is wilted and the turkey is cooked, stir in some soy sauce. 
  4. Serve in bowls and garnish with sriracha mayonnaise (if desired) and sliced green onions.

Great recipe! Cannot wait to try it this weekend. I always use Dorot frozen ginger cubes in my recipes. Saves time and you use them frozen right out of the freezer. Need to try ginger paste, though. Added it to my shopping list. Keri De Deo
