Egg Roll In A Bowl

This Egg Roll in a Bowl is a recipe I got on the internet. It has all of the great flavor of Egg Rolls, but it's an Easy One Pan Meal without the grain wrapper - low carb, HIGH flavor and my whole family LOVES it! You can use ground pork or chicken as an alternative. I usually go with ground Turkey

1 pound ground turkey

1 package of coleslaw mix
½ medium onion, thinly sliced
½ cup bean sprouts
1 tablespoon sesame oil
¼ cup soy sauce or liquid aminos
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
2 stalks of green onion

Brown ground turkey in a large pan or wok over medium heat.
Add sesame oil and onion to pan with browned ground turkey. Mix together and continue cooking over medium heat.
Mix soy sauce, garlic, and ground ginger together in a small bowl. Once onions have browned, add the sauce mixture to the pan.
Immediately add the cabbage and bean sprouts to the pan and toss to coat the vegetable and evenly distribute ingredients. Add chicken broth to the pan and mix. Continue cooking over medium heat for three minutes, stirring frequently.
Garnish with salt, pepper, and green onion.
