This Whole30 recipe is easily becoming one of my favorites. I have made it multiple times for dinner and for lunch. If you are on the hunt for Instant Pot recipes, and you want to eat clean, this Egg Roll in a Bowl is one to add to your list.
What I love about this recipe is that it does not use the Instant Pot as a pressure cooker, instead it uses only the saute feature to cook this dish.
This is a meal that is done from start of finish in less than 20 minutes. Perfect for a busy weeknight or any day of the week when you’re needing to get dinner on the table fast and still eat well.
Who knew you could create a stir fry recipe without all the bad stuff at home. It’s better than Chinese food takeout any day of the week!

How to Make Egg Roll in a Bowl in Your Instant Pot
With the stainless steel insert in the Instant Pot choose the saute setting. (I use an 8 quart Instant Pot because I am cooking for a minimum of 8 people ever night. You can certainly use a 6 quart for this recipe.)
Add the ghee to the insert.
As it starts to melt add in the garlic (If you’re using it… I highly recommend! So much flavor!) and your diced onion.
Saute them for 3-5 minutes or until the onions are translucent. Stir them often to prevent burning.
Isn’t it amazing that you can cook in this appliance without ever turning on the pressure cooking feature? It’s like it’s an extra burner or skillet in the kitchen. One pot meals like this are perfect for this feature!
Add in the ground pork and use a meat chopper to make the pork super fine as it is cooking. You will see me using it in the video where we show how to assemble this meal.
Once the ground pork is done cooking, toss in the slawed veggies and the snow peas if you are using them.
Add in the rice wine vinegar and the coconut aminos.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Continue to saute, stirring as needed to combine and prevent burning, for 10 minutes.
Plate it up.
You can top with some sesame seeds if you want. That is yummy!

Can I Use Ground Chicken or Grass Fed Beef Instead
Yes, you can! As long as it is clean and does not have any additives or extra stuff added to it. You could totally ground chicken yourself at home.
For the beef you just want to ensure it is grass fed.
What are Coconut Aminos
This is made from the sap of coconuts. It is dark in color and salty in taste and is an awesome alternative to soy sauce. It is gluten free and soy free. Coconut aminos are Whole30 compliant and one bottle will last a while.
What is Ghee
Ghee is clarified butter that has the dairy removed. They say it is better for you than butter. Many Whole30 recipes use ghee when cooking, just like we did for cooking the ground pork. A container really can go a long way.
Don’t want to use ghee in this recipe? You could use extra virgin olive oil instead.
