Pressure Cooker Healthy Inside Out Eggrolls are so healthy for a low calorie and low carbohydrate diet.
Whoever heard of cooking eggrolls in a Pressure Cooker? No one, I don’t think. Well, this is a slimmed down version and I hope you will enjoy my Pressure Cooker Healthy Inside Out Eggrolls as much as we do.
Eggrolls are a must have when we have Chinese food. I love them. I miss them. It is almost impossible to find good Chinese food in Southern California.
Florida has wonderful and authentic Chinese food. I think, other than fishing, Chinese food is what I miss most about Florida.
I don’t like deep frying in my house, so I probably won’t attempt traditional eggrolls. While this recipe is not an eggroll, it is fun to eat nevertheless! Plus, it just takes a few minutes in your Pressure Cooker to make delicious Pressure Cooker Healthy Inside Out Eggrolls.
If you love Egg Rolls, check out my Air Fryer Pub Style Corned Beef Egg Rolls. It is another healthy alternative to deep frying!
I like using ground pork and/or turkey in this recipe, but other ground meat like chicken, lamb, etc., will work well. You can even use a variety of meat. If you happen to have some left over Char Siu, it would be fabulous in this recipe.
You don’t need to follow the measurements for the ground pork or shrimp exactly. If you want more shimp, add it. If you don’t have much ground meat, no worries. I actually prefer this dish with more than two pounds of coleslaw.
Black Soy Sauce is one of my favorite condiments to cook with as it adds a depth of flavor. Black Soy Sauce can be found at most Asian markets, but if you don’t have any, you can order on line by clicking here.
Dice up the ginger and garlic and set that aside and dice up the celery and scallions and set those aside.
Do you like coconut? My Pressure Cooker Triple Coconut Rice is to die for and goes great with these Eggrolls.
You will use half of the sauce before cooking and the other half after pressure has been released.
Heat up your Pressure Cooker and then add the oils. This will make your stainless steel pot, non stick. I use a Instant Pot Smart DUO60 and GoWise 8 Quart Pressure Cooker mostly as I like the performance of both machines and they both have stainless steel cooking pots!
In this demonstration, I have used a 6 quart Pressure Cooker, so you can see how much the coleslaw cooks down in only a minute. You can easily double the recipe for this Pressure Cooker Healthy Inside Out Eggrolls recipe.
Drop in the garlic and ginger and continue Sautéing until the meat is browned.
There may be excess liquid in your pot and if there is, we’ll dump it out in a bit.
Add the celery and scallions and Sauté for another minute. If there is excess liquid, dump it out.
Add in the water chestnuts, coleslaw mix (reserve half a pound) and 1/2 of the sauce and mix through.
Cabbage cooks really super fast, so under pressure, it will just take one minute!
Once the Pressure Cooker beeps, carefully release the pressure. There will be a lot of liquid from the cabbage. Drain off as much as you can.
Select the Sauté or Browning option on your Pressure Cooker. Add the rest of the sauce and the shrimp and mix through.
Add the reserved coleslaw and mix into Pressure Cooker cooking pot. Add more veggies here, if you want to stretch the Pressure Cooker Healthy Inside-Out Eggrolls.
I like a little crunch, so saving some of the coleslaw until the end gives a nice, little crunch. The coleslaw will wilt a bit, so it will not be raw and the added texture, really makes a nice difference.
Stir until the shrimp are no longer translucent. It should only take a couple of minutes.
Garnish the Pressure Cooker Healthy Inside Out Eggrolls with a diced scallion and serve with a small bowl of my Sweet ‘N Sour Sauce Recipe for dipping. As a side accompaniment, try my Pressure Cooker White Rice or Pressure Cooker Ghee Rice and pretend it is the skin of the eggroll! 😉

These Pressure Cooker Healthy Inside-Out Eggrolls make a great filling inside a lettuce wrap! My Sweet ‘N Sour Sauce Recipe, Hoisin Sauce, Duck Sauce and even Nuoc Cham (Vietnamese Dipping Sauce) would be great as a dipping sauce!

Select Sauté or Browning function on your Pressure Cooker and allow to heat.

I like a little crunch in my Inside Out "Eggrolls," so I save some of the cabbage and add it in when I add the raw shrimp.
A spoon full of Hoisin Sauce is great as a condiment.
