So, I obviously haven’t been around in a long while.
Things have been crazy hectic at school and at home. Half the time I don’t know if I’m coming or going; if I’m awake, asleep, or somewhere in the middle of Zombieland. I’m pretty sure that we have been at home one weekend out of the last 2 months. INSANE! Even for our normal schedule.
I’m so sorry for the absence. Here’s hoping this recipe will make it up to you!
(Also, school ends in exactly 27 days! So, I plan on sharing many more delicious treats and eats once that is over.)
I recently started a diet called Trim Healthy Mama. To simplify it in the easiest way I know how, it’s essentially a low-glycemic diet. You can pretty much each whatever you want, however you avoid eating carbs and fats together. I love it. I am eating delicious food, drinking yummy drinks, and snacking on cheese, fruit, and even chocolate muffins. The best thing about this diet is that the foods within the “S meals” (the fatty, or satisfying, meals) are naturally gluten-free. So, more than likely, you will see many more of these S Meals popping up here.
One thing that I have really missed since going gluten-free are egg rolls. There is just something so delicious in the mixture of fried wrapper, pork, cabbage, onions, and celery. So, you can imagine my joy when I came across this recipe at Intentionally Domestic. Thank you Pinterest for assisting in this discovery!! This recipe is so very close that if I close my eyes, I can imagine I’m having the real thing!
**I did add my own tweaks and per a suggestion from a busy mom, I opted for the precut and measured cabbage (probably the BEST suggestion I have received lately!).
Egg Roll in a Bowl
1 lb ground pork
1 package coleslaw mix
3 ribs of celery, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
3-4 Tbsp tamari sauce **If you are doing THM, use Braggs Amino Acids
1-2 tsp rice vinegar
Cook the ground pork until done and remove from pan, leaving the drippings.
Add onions, garlic and celery to the pan and saute until nearly cooked through.
Add the coleslaw mix and continue to cook about 15 minutes, then mix in cooked ground pork.
Add the freshly grated ginger, tamari sauce, and rice vinegar.
Allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes.
**This is also nicely complimented with some Sriracha sauce. It gives it a nice kick!
