PALEO EGG ROLL SOUP
At long last, I’ve finally completed my manuscript for Paleo Kids Cookbook and am coming up for air! It’s been such an eventful Fall this year with my typical mom responsibilities, editing The New Yiddish Kitchen, and writing Paleo Kids. All fulfilling and rewarding and all overwhelming at times.
So as I was approaching the completion of this 3rd manuscript, I started realizing that I have failed at blogging miserably these past few months. I’ve been teasing you with all of the upcoming recipes for the books but have barely posted here.
Please accept this PALEO EGG ROLL SOUP as my apology. It’s really tasty and I think you’ll find it in your hearts to forgive me after you see how easy it is to make too! I made it in my Instant Pot, because I find it to be one of the world’s best inventions of all time, but feel free to make it on your stovetop or in a slow cooker.
For more recipes like this one, be sure to grab my 4th book, Paleo Cooking with Your Instant Pot!
- 1 tablespoon ghee, avocado oil, or olive oil
- 1 pound ground pastured pork
- 1 large onion, diced
- 32 ounces (4 cups) chicken or beef broth
- 1/2 head cabbage, chopped
- 2 cups shredded carrots
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2/3 cup coconut aminos
- Optional: 2-3 tablespoons tapioca starch
- In your Instant Pot (or skillet) brown the ground pork in the tablespoon of cooking fat with the diced onion; cook until no longer pink
- Add in the remaining ingredients and cook for 25 minutes high pressure then quick release the pressure
- Remove lid and serve
- If you want a thicker soup, remove 1/4 cup of broth from the soup and stir in 2-3 tablespoons of tapioca starch. Reintroduce the slurry and stir well, it will thicken over the next few minutes

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! I am going to LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am obsessed with soup lately and need to change up my usual 🙂
Norah Cooper says
Absolutely delish! Both my husband and I ate seconds. This will be in our regular rotation from now on! Thanks so much!
Fantastic! So glad to hear Norah!
Just made the wonderful soup for dinner and it was hit!!
I didn’t put as much cabbage maybe about 1 cup and 1 cup of broccoli slaw was added too.
It will be made often!!
I think I might try adding 5 Spice Chinese Powder next time.
Wonderful! Great idea!
Can I substitute almond or coconut flour for the tapioca starch?
You could maybe use almond, you shouldn’t need much!
Has anyone ever frozen this soup? Just preparing the freezer for baby arrival and thinking if I should put this recipe on the list 🙂
It should work well!
Any idea what the nutritional information per serving would be?
I don’t calculate nutritional values but it is not particularly high in fat or carbs just based on the ingredients alone.
I looked through the ingredients and made a few observations. The coconut aminos called for in the recipe is $16.27 from Amazon for an 8 ounce bottle, and this recipe calls for 2/3 of that. On top of that, it has one gram of carbs per teaspoon. 32 grams of carbs in the recipe from the sauce, 20 grams from the carrots and 14 from the onion. 16- 17 grams of carbs per serving if this is four servings, and judging from the one pound of pork, I would assume that is what this would make. Not exactly low carb, but there are worse things. I am going to make it anyway with half the carrots and onions, and no sauce. Thanks for the recipe.
Thanks for your feedback. Coconut aminos are about 1/3-1/4 of that price in person. I use it instead of tamari because I don’t like to use soy but if you can, it would not have the carbs you are concerned with. I don’t personally count carbs, nor do I have to count them for my very active children (one of whom is a competitive gymnast) but that is one way to make it lower carb if you are worried. Thanks!
True, Natural Grocers has the coconut aminos for $5.99.
Patricia Tait says
He coconut aminos are readily available at your local grocer. Cost is between $6.00 -$9.00.
I made this soup and it is going to be a frequent soup I serve. Absolutely delicious.
Anna S. says
I absolutely loved this! It’s the perfect amount of salty/savory and freezes well. Making it again ASAP! Thank you!
I just got an Instant Pot and this was my third recipe in it. The second was your Mexican meatloaf. Loved both! I doubled this recipe so we could have lunch leftovers and freeze some. Thank you for all your awesome recipes.
Yay! So glad you are enjoying!
I don’t have an instant pot (yet) approximately how long in a slow cooker?
4 hours on high or 6 on low would work – you could probably cook for less time too!
Marjorie Wax says
My first soup in the instant pot – it is absolutely delicious! Savory, sweet, hearty- just what the doctor ordered!!! Thanks so much
What can I substitute for coconut amino? Not a coconut fan
You can sub gluten free tamari
I did this and it came out very salty. Should the amount should be less when using tamari?
Yes! Coconut aminos are much more mild 🙂
I don’t have an Instapot yet and my crockpot and I don’t get along. I made this in a Dutch oven and it’s been simmering for about 3 hours. Is that too long? It’s absolutely delicious but the
pork is a bit dry. Maybe cook it longer? I always seem to have issues with the pork.
Thank you for your recipes. I’ve been on AIP for a few weeks now and they are a lifesaver.
Sounds delicious, I am sure 3 hours is just fine. How was it?
Love!! I use 1 lb broccoli slaw, 1 lb green beans and 1 lb cauliflower rice for the veggies. This is sooo good. Thank you!
What kind of cabbage did you use? Can you use napa?
Any cabbage should work~ I think I used purple cabbage once and an alternate another time!
I ended up using Savoy cabbage. So good! My boyfriend was skeptical about the soup and ended up loving it! Thank you!
I just want to say THANK YOU for this recipe! It’s delicious! Everyone raved about it. I took the suggestion of a person in the comments and added just about 1/8 teaspoon of chinese five spice. On top of that after it was cooked I added just a bit of chili oil that I made and had on hand. I highly recommend that! That little addition made it so outstanding! Of course, only if you like spicy…
My friend was taking pictures of it and sending it to his friends to brag about how good the soup was that he just had. My boyfriend woke up this morning and immediately thought about soup and couldn’t wait til lunch and had it for breakfast and he’s been telling all his friends too.
So again, thank you! I love it!!!
Oh yay! Sounds like a big hit then. Thanks for the feedback!
Hi there! I was wondering if I double the recipe do I double the time on my Instant Pot? Thanks!
No need to double the time, just double ingredients and leave cook time the same!
I don’t have coconut aminos. Can I just use soy sauce? Should I use less soy sauce?
Yes you could use soy/organic tamari and you would use less or it could be oversalted!
We like the soup, however it was too sweet for us probably due to the coconut aminos. Any recommendations to counteract the sweetness while still using the coconut aminos?
You could use less coconut aminos and add a bit more salt if needed to balance that.
Tried this and it was a big “no” from all four of us. I’m looking forward to trying some others, However.
Thanks for letting me know?
Anna D says
Just made this last night! I added baby carrots instead of shredded so I could pick them out (I’m super low carb) but leave them in for my husband! It was soooo good. I also added chicken thighs, straight from the freezer, instead of pork. It turned out so well, and is really such a versatile recipe! So thank you. 🙂
My husband can’t eat pork. Do you think it would taste right with ground turkey or chicken instead?
Yes both work great!
Paula M Schlotterbeck says
This recipe looks wonderful! I hope to try it soon. If possible, I’d like to substitute bagged shredded cabbage (Dole cole slaw mix) , which typically comes in a 14 oz bag. Do you have a suggestion regarding how many bags would equal the called-for cabbage in your recipe? Thanks again for the recipe.
One bag should do the trick!
Waunda Barreiro says
Hi – just came across this recipe and I’d like to try it. 25 minutes in the pressure cooker seems like a long time for cabbage and carrots. Will they not get mushy or completely emaciated after that long?
You can decrease the cooking time to suit your preference.
Hi! If I double this recipe, will it be too much to fit in the instant pot? If so, do you have a recommendation on how to make it on a stovetop?
Thanks!!!! Cannot wait to try it, but one pound of meat just won’t go far enough in this household ?
It should hold it fine. No need to increase the cook time either!
