This easy-to-make keto egg roll soup will satisfy your hunger for Chinese food!
Every once in a while I get a serious hankering for Chinese food… and that’s when I make this keto Chinese pork egg roll soup.
It’s a tasty union of pork, sesame, and ginger that really calms the craving. This soup is hearty and satisfying while keeping carbs low and flavors high. I really like to top mine with toasted sesame seeds, green onions, and a squirt of sriracha for an extra kick!
Recipe tips to keep in mind when making Keto Chinese Pork Egg Roll Soup:
- Spice things up by adding a dash of sriracha to your bowl. Sriracha is a spicy sauce made with red chili and garlic that’s commonly served with Vietnamese, Chinese, and Thai cuisine. My favorite brands are Huy Fong and Merfs (I love the Merfs variety pack of sauces which includes sriracha).
- If you’re not a pork fan, feel free to substitute with ground turkey, ground chicken, or even ground beef. When I make this soup with ground beef, I like to use beef broth instead of chicken broth to give it a richer taste.
- Vegetarians, try using a combination of TVP (textured vegetable protein), and finely diced mushrooms in place of the ground pork. I also recommend adding in an extra tablespoon of sesame, avocado, or coconut oil.
- Craving crackers with your soup? No problem, make our easy peasy 2-ingredient keto crackers and dunk them right in your soup bowl!

This delicious keto egg roll soup is the tasty union of pork, sesame, and ginger for great Chinese food flavor.
- 1 pound ground pork
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced
- 1 orange bell pepper, cut into thin, short strips (about 1" long)
- 3-4 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1 - 1 1/2 teaspoons grated ginger
- small head green cabbage, shredded (about 8 cups)
- 6 cups chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon tamari
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- green onions, chopped (optional for garnish)
- toasted sesame seeds (optional for garnish)
- sriracha (optional for added heat)
Using a large pot, brown the ground pork on medium heat until just done. If desired, drain the fat (I choose not to).
To the pot, add sesame oil, onion, bell pepper, garlic, and ginger. Sauté for 5 minutes or until onions are slightly translucent.
Add the broth, cabbage, soy sauce/tamari, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.
Bring the soup to a low simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the cabbage is wilted. If needed, season further with additional salt and pepper. Now it's ready to serve!
Top each bowl with sliced green onions & toasted sesame seeds. For a little spice, add a squirt of sriracha per individual serving.

The perfect one pot meal idea!
This soup is easy to make all in one pot and smells delicious from start to finish. The topping suggestions are perfect, too. I especially enjoyed the addition of green onion. I also loved the generous serving size, it definitely filled me up!
This is one of our most popular recipes here at Hip2Keto, and trust me, it’s going to be a new favorite in your home too. Even the non-keto eaters in your family will enjoy it and ask for seconds.
Love soup?! Try our Cauliflower Bacon Chowder next!
Used Chinese cabbage and left off the bell pepper and added mushrooms. It was fantastic and didn’t last 2 days for 2 people.
Woohoo! Happy to hear you liked it! I’ll have to try it with Chinese cabbage sometime. 👏
Sooooo good! , even my kids came back for seconds . The sriracha at the end made it have an amazing kick without taking away from the flavor.
We’re so happy your family enjoyed it, Brandon! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
Has anyone made this in the instant pot successfully? What steps and times did you use? Please and thank you!
Yes, worked great.
I have ground hot italian sausage, can that be used in place of ground pork?
Yes, however it may slightly change the flavor and be a bit more spicy. Hope this helps!
I use the Hot Italian Sausage for the Egg Roll in a bowl recipe.
I think it would work perfectly in this soup.
Thanks for the recipe. I’ll have to try this, because we already LOVE egg roll in a bowl. 🙂
Oh great! 🙌 You’re so welcome! Hope you enjoy this soup just as much!
Does this soup freeze well?
Cabbage doesn’t freeze well so I wouldn’t recommend it.
What can you use instead of the coconut, allergy to coconut. Thank you.
Hi Irma! Are you asking about the oil? You can do sesame or avocado oil instead. Hope that helps!
This recipe is absolutely delicious. Definitely one we will add into regular rotation!
I’m so glad to hear that! It’s one of my families faves!
Thoughts on adding bean sprouts?
I think you could put them on top right before you serve!
What an awesome idea!💕
Hope you love it, Lisa!
Just made this. I used a bag of coleslaw mix and added in a yellow pepper too. Tastes great! Can I freeze this soup??
This would not freeze well. Glad you liked it!
I freeze the weight loss cabbage soup all the time! It taste the same as it does on day one. So I don’t see why this can’t be frozen.
I’m glad to hear that, Barbara! Thanks! For me, cabbage doesn’t freeze well, but it sounds like it works great for you.
Just curious…is this still considered Keto with 7.9 grams of sugar? Looks wonderful but I’m afraid it will throw me out of ketosis.
Yes! Thanks for commenting, Kim! As always, be sure to choose the meals and items that work best for your plan. Be sure to browse through our other soup options over here – https://hip2keto.com/category/keto-recipes/soup/ Hope this is helpful!
Thank you for this recipe,it tasted great. I also added some chopped cauliflower and broccoli and bock chop.
Even my husband loved it and he is not on keto. Will cook this again
Oh awesome! SO glad to hear you both enjoyed it! 🤗Thanks a ton for the feedback, Mirjana! 🙌❤️
OMG, this became an instant family favorite. I exchanged shredded carrot for the orange pepper as I am not a fan of pepper. Thanks so much!
You’re very welcome! Happy it has become a fast favorite, Jackie! Thank YOU for letting us know the swap you made and that it has been such a hit! 🥰🙌
