A spoonful of keto egg roll soup

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!

    Used Chinese cabbage and left off the bell pepper and added mushrooms. It was fantastic and didn’t last 2 days for 2 people.

    • Marley (Sister Sidekick)

      Woohoo! Happy to hear you liked it! I’ll have to try it with Chinese cabbage sometime. 👏

  2. Brandon Trammell

    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.

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      We’re so happy your family enjoyed it, Brandon! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!

  3. April

    Has anyone made this in the instant pot successfully? What steps and times did you use? Please and thank you!

    • Lynette Walters

      Yes, worked great.

  4. Shiona

    I have ground hot italian sausage, can that be used in place of ground pork?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, however it may slightly change the flavor and be a bit more spicy. Hope this helps!

    • Dorene

      I use the Hot Italian Sausage for the Egg Roll in a bowl recipe.
      I think it would work perfectly in this soup.

  5. ashton586

    Thanks for the recipe. I’ll have to try this, because we already LOVE egg roll in a bowl. 🙂

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh great! 🙌 You’re so welcome! Hope you enjoy this soup just as much!

  6. Joan

    Does this soup freeze well?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Cabbage doesn’t freeze well so I wouldn’t recommend it.

  7. Irma

    What can you use instead of the coconut, allergy to coconut. Thank you.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Irma! Are you asking about the oil? You can do sesame or avocado oil instead. Hope that helps!

  8. Leelur

    This recipe is absolutely delicious. Definitely one we will add into regular rotation!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m so glad to hear that! It’s one of my families faves!

  9. Mary

    Thoughts on adding bean sprouts?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I think you could put them on top right before you serve!

  10. Lisa

    What an awesome idea!💕

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Hope you love it, Lisa!

  11. bonbon

    Just made this. I used a bag of coleslaw mix and added in a yellow pepper too. Tastes great! Can I freeze this soup??

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      This would not freeze well. Glad you liked it!
