PHILLY CHEESESTEAK EGG ROLLS INGREDIENTS

These Philly cheesesteak rolls are easier to make than you might think! Here’s what goes into them:

  • Egg roll wrappers: Commonly found in the refrigerated produce section of the grocery store, often at an end aisle or even with the salad dressings.  If you can’t find them – just ask, because they are there!
  • Sirloin or flank steak: You’ll need to thinly slice the steak against the grain. I recommend sirloin if you are going to be marinating less than one hour.
  • Steak marinade: Made of Italian dressing, Worcestershire sauce, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  • Mushrooms: are optional for the mushroom lovers. Any variety will work.
  • Green bell pepper: A must when making Philly cheesesteak-anything.
  • Jalapeños: Deseed and devein the peppers so they’re not too spicy.
  • Cheese: shredded provolone and sharp cheddar. You can purchase a block of provolone from your deli counter then shred it yourself.

 

WHAT KIND OF MEAT DO YOU USE FOR PHILLY CHEESESTEAKS?

Step into a world of culinary delight with these steak and cheese egg rolls, featuring the same succulent rib eye used in the classic Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. The journey to flavor begins with a tantalizing marinade, where rib eye takes a luxurious bath in zesty Italian Dressing, joined by the aromatic company of onions, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes for that extra kick. If you’re feeling budget-conscious, fear not—you can seamlessly swap out the rib eye for the more economical flank steak without sacrificing taste. It’s a versatile twist that ensures every bite is a savory symphony of flavors.

 

CAN I USE CHICKEN INSTEAD OF BEEF?

Absolutely! You can substitute the steak for chicken to make CHICKEN Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls.  You will want to treat the chicken just like the beef and thinly slice it across thee grain to marinate it.

HOW TO MAKE PHILLY CHEESESTEAK EGG ROLLS 

These Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls are super easy to make!

STEP 1: MARINATE STEAK  

The marinade is a quick whisking of ingredients then adding your beef.   You can marinate the steak for as little as one hour and still achieve flavorful beef because the steak is already sliced thinly, but of course, the longer you marinate the beef, the more flavorful it will become. 

STEP 2:  COOK STEAK AND PEPPERS

Heat a large skillet over medium- high heat until very hot. Add steak and let cook on one side without disturbing, then proceed to cook until meat is cooked through. Take care not to overcook your steak so it remains tender instead of tough.  Once cooked, transfer meat to a fine hole strainer/sieve and remove any excess liquid by pressing down on the meat mixture with a spatula.  This last step is super important because excess liquid in the Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls will result in a wet and soggy wrapper which means it will likely tear when folding or cooking.

STEP 3:  COOK VEGETABLES

To the now empty skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat. Add mushrooms and sauté for 3-5 minutes or until golden. Remove to a paper towel lined plate. Heat another tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat and add onions, green pepper and jalapeno. Saute for 6-8 minutes or until softened.

STEP 4:  CHOP FILLING

Now for my secret shortcut to create the EASIEST egg roll filling without having to do any hand chopping – chop the filling with your food processor!  I use this trick in my Traditional Egg Rolls, Southwest Egg Rolls, Sesame Chicken Egg Rolls and Sweet and Sour Chicken Egg Rolls because it literally takes seconds and creates the perfect texture every time.  If you don’t have a food processor, you can certainly chop by hand- it will just a little longer than a few seconds.

TIPS FOR MAKING HOMEMADE EGG ROLLS

When working with egg roll wrappers, a crucial tip is to keep them covered. To prevent drying out and easy tearing, maintain the wrappers in their packaging when not in use. You can go the extra mile by wrapping the package in plastic wrap or sealing it in a freezer bag, ensuring they stay in prime condition.

Precision is key when it comes to filling egg roll wrappers. Optimal results are achieved with approximately ¼ cup of filling. If you encounter difficulties in rolling up and sealing your egg rolls, it’s a sign to use a tad less filling. Striking the right balance ensures a seamless rolling process and a perfect seal.

Now, let’s talk about the art of wrapping. It’s essential to wrap the egg roll as tightly as possible. This not only eliminates excess air but also prevents the filling from making a daring escape into the oil. Tight wrapping is your ally against potential mishaps, ensuring that neither the oil leaks into the egg roll nor the egg roll cracks under pressure. Master the technique for a flawless and delicious outcome

HOW DO YOU FOLD EGG ROLLS?

Step 1 – Prepare Surface:  Line your counter with parchment paper to place rolled egg rolls if frying or line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil if baking and lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray.  Keep egg roll wrappers covered when you’re not using them so the don’t dry out and crack.

Step 2 – Add Filling: Position an egg roll wrapper with one point towards you. Line the center with 2 tablespoons cheese and top with ¼ cup steak mixture.

Step 3 –  Fold:  Fold bottom corner over filling then continue to roll up, firmly folding sides toward center over filling as you roll.   Make sure you push out any excess air and roll your egg roll as tightly as possible to prevent the filling from leaking into the oil and the egg roll cracking.

Step 4 –  Seal:  Moisten top corner with egg wash press firmly to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.   If your egg roll isn’t properly sealed, it will leak when cooking, so make sure it’s secure!

HOW TO FRY EGG ROLLS 

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a deep stock pot/Dutch oven or deep-fat fryer to 350 degrees F or medium high heat.
  2. Gently add  egg rolls in batches so they don’t overcrowd the pot.
  3. Fry egg rolls until golden brown, turning egg rolls a few times while frying.
  4. Drain on paper towels and repeat with remaining egg rolls.
  5. Dig into cheesy, meaty on the inside, crispy, crunchy outside.  So no matter if you end up on the winning or losing side of the game, at least you can savor these epic Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls along the way.

  2. Line egg rolls, seam side down, on baking sheet, so that they are not touching.
  3. Spray egg rolls with nonstick cooking spray.

WHAT DIP SHOULD I SERVE WITH PHILLY CHEESESTEAK EGG ROLLS?

They crispy exterior and hearty filling of these Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls are begging to be dipped in a creamy counterpart, and nothing is better, in my humble opinion, than your favorite cheese sauce.  I use homemade queso blanco but you can also purchase queso blanco (Tostitos brand is tasty). That being said, these egg rolls are also fabulous dipped in barbecue sauce and even Asian chili sauce!

HOW TO REHEAT STEAK EGG ROLLS

Homemade egg rolls are best eaten when they are hot and the wrappers are still crispy BUT you can reheat leftover egg rolls – they just won’t be as crispy.  To reheat any leftover egg rolls, line in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes until heated through.
