Eggroll in a Jar Dehydrated Recipe

Each ingredient will be linked to a tutorial on how to dehydrate the fresh vegetable or meat.

Ingredient Tips

  • Dried Cabbage – Can use packaged and dried cole slaw mix
  • Dried Ground Beef – Can substitute with freeze-dried ground beef for the shelf stable recipe, or use fresh or frozen ground beef, chicken, sausage or tofu during cooking.
  • Dried Carrots – you can substitute or just use other vegetables to add to the mix
  • Dried Onions
  • Soy Sauce – can use soy sauce powder or Liquid Coconut Aminos, Hoisin sauce, Oyster sauce, or any combination of them.

*Note – cabbage and carrots should be blanched before dehydrating (See instructions on each linked above), but for very short-term use, it’s fine to skip that step).

Storage Instructions

  1. Layer ground beef, dry seasonings, onions, carrots, and cabbage in a quart jar.
  2. Place lid on jar.
  3. Vacuum seal if desired. I use this handheld vacuum sealer.
  4. Place the ring on the lid and store it for up to six months.*

*Dehydrated ground beef is generally not a reliable shelf-stable ingredient. However, I’ve been able to store 90/10 ground beef on my shelf, dehydrated, for at least ten months without issue. If you choose to store the ground beef separately in the freezer, you can still pull out enough for the recipe, store in a bag, and use on your trip or in your meal for that night.

Cooking Instructions

These instructions are using dried ground beef. If you are using fresh meat, cook it thoroughly before starting with the rest of the steps.

  1. Add water to a 10- or 12-inch skillet.
  2. Add jar ingredients to the skillet.
  3. Add additional wet ingredients to the skillet.
  4. Stir to incorporate all the ingredients.
  5. Place a lid on the skillet and allow to steam for five minutes, then stir ingredients again, and cover again.
  6. Repeat the previous step until the consistency of your dried vegetable ingredients is achieved. You may prefer a bit crunchy or you may prefer softer.
  7. Serve in a bowl with your favorite garnishes.

Garnish Ideas

  • Pickled ginger
  • Sesame seeds
  • Fresh green onion slices
  • Sriracha sauce

    Hi Darcy!
    Great recipe as always! I do appreciate you! I did get the update. I did want to let you know that your emails are always a bright spot in my mailbox. My apologies for not actively communicating that to you. You do great work and now I have a skill that I would not otherwise have without your sounding the dehydration call to duty. I pray you take the time you need to take care of you. I pray that you will heal. Sending my thoughts and prayers your way!

    I am very interested in feeding my family whole foods. Does dehydrating change the nutritional aspect? What does this dish look like when you cook it? I guess I don’t fully understand the process. I’m sorry if this is a bad question. We are going through a major cancer process and my brain isn’t processing properly.

  3. Love this idea! Can’t wait to try it!
