Author: Ashley McCrary


  • 1 ½ lbs ground pork or ground turkey/chicken
  • 16 oz bagged coleslaw
  • ½ cup carrot matchsticks
  • ½ cup chopped red cabbage
  • 2 tsp sesame seed oil
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos*
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ sweet onion sliced
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • green onions for garnish

Bang Bang Sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayo or sub Greek or DF yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tsp coconut aminos
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1-2 tbsp sriracha sauce depending on spice level
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • 1. Heat skillet over medium heat with 2 tsp sesame seed oil. Add in the garlic and onions. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add in the ground sausage and Brown for 5 minutes. Drain off excess grease.
  • 2. Add the bagged coleslaw, carrots, red cabbage, onion powder, and ginger. Stir mixing all vegetables and sausage together. Cook for 5 minutes.
  • 3. Add the rice vinegar and coconut aminos to the sausage mixture. Mix together and cook over low heat for 10 mins or until veggies are soft. I still like a crunch, so I only cook down for about 8 minutes.


Mac’s Pro Tips

  • Sub soy sauce for coconut aminos if not Whole30 or gluten-free
  • If you want, add extra veggies like broccoli, bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, or whatever else you can think of! 
  • You can use fresh garlic and ginger, or swap for dried versions. Keep in mind that you will use less if using dried versions. 
  • If you want a spicier dish, add more sriracha to the bang bang sauce. If you prefer a milder spice, use less. 

Serving Tips

  • Serve this inside out egg roll recipe in a big bowl. Drizzle with bang bang sauce and chopped green onions.

Storage Tips

  • Leftovers: Store leftovers in an airtight container and eat within 3-4 days. Store leftover sauce separately. Reheat in a skillet over medium heat and serve with the sauce and green onions. 
  • Make Ahead: This is an easy dish to make ahead and store in individual containers for meal prep, or for dinner later. Simply reheat in the microwave or stovetop and serve with the sauce and garnish.
