I guess you could also call this Budget Friendly Crackslaw….

But I’m not sure I’m loving that, so let’s stick with budget friendly Egg Roll in a Bowl…

I bring this up because the first time I ever saw a recipe similar to this was on Instagram and it was called Crackslaw. I just couldn’t wrap my head around the name or really the concept of how that could taste good at all. I wasn’t Keto at the time, so I think I just didn’t understand how delicious fried up ground meat with cabbage and veggies could be. But then I tried it. And it was GOOD. Then I made it again and it was REALLY good. Then I made it for my sister and she loved it. And then I had to try and put it into a recipe to share with all of you.

Customize Budget Friendly Low Carb Egg Roll in a Bowl

Every time I make this at home, it’s different. I use whatever spices I’m in the mood for and whatever meat was one sale or was handy in my freezer. So, if you’re looking at this ingredients and something doesn’t look good to you, swap it out!

Don’t like spicy sausage? Try regular or “sweet” sausage.

Not a fan of ginger? Leave it out. Or, leave it out and sub in more garlic!

Forget to buy sesame seeds? Skip it.

Ran out of rice vinegar? Substitute apple cider vinegar or plain white.

Was ground beef on sale this week? Use it. You could try all beef. Or half spicy sausage and half beef.

I think you get the idea. Use what you have, what you like and what is on sale.
