Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls

Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls(makes 12 egg rolls)

Being a native of SE Pennsylvania I love a good Philly Cheesesteak!  This take on a South Philly favorite is full of flavor, texture, and so much fun.  Ribeye is the ideal steak for this recipe but if you have a favorite or another cut on hand any will work fine.  Any preferred combination of onions, peppers, and mushrooms works great and a good provolone really finishes it off.  For true South Philly style Cheese Whiz makes a great dipping sauce or if you’re not feeling that, Horseradish Sour Cream or Ranch goes well too!

This is a great snack for the big game and is something fun and different that’s got tons of flavor!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 green bell pepper diced

  • 1/2 sweet yellow onion diced

  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms(optional)

  • 1lb rib eye steak sliced or chopped

  • Salt, pepper, & granulated garlic to taste(Montreal steak seas. works well too)

  • 6 slices provolone cheese

  • 12 egg roll wrappers

  • oil for frying

  • Your favorite dipping sauce

Instructions:

Melt half of the butter in a large pan over medium high heat. Add the peppers and onion and sauté 3-4 minutes or until softened.  If using mushrooms add them next and cook an additional 1-2 mins. Remove the vegetables from the pan and keep warm.

Melt the other half of the butter and add the rib eye to the pan. Season with the salt, pepper, & garlic to taste. Cook the steak for 3-4 minutes or until browned and just cooked through. Place the vegetables back into the pan and stir in with the steak.

Lay out an egg roll wrapper and place 1/2 of a slice of cheese in the center.  Spoon approximately 2-3 tablespoons of steak filling onto each egg roll wrapper and fold according to package directions, using water to seal the edges of the wrappers as you go.

Pour 2-3 inches of oil into a deep pan. Heat the oil over medium high heat to 350 degrees. Fry 3-4 egg rolls at a time, turning occasionally, until browned all over, approximately 3-4 minutes.

Drain on paper towels, then serve with dipping sauce of your choice.

NOTES:

If you prefer to bake your egg rolls, you can coat them with cooking spray and bake at 425 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until browned and crispy.

An air fryer is another great option.  Cook 3-4 at a time coated with cooking spray, 4-5 mins per side at 375 degrees.
