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!
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
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.
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.
