Ingredients for Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls

To make about 15-20 Philly cheesesteak egg rolls, you’ll need:

  1. 1 pound thinly sliced ribeye or sirloin steak

    • Flank steak, chuck steak or brisket also work well
  2. 1 large onion, thinly sliced

  3. 3 cloves garlic, minced

  4. 1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced

  5. 2 tablespoons olive oil

  6. Salt and pepper to taste

  7. 1 (15 ounce) jar Cheez Whiz or 8 ounces provolone cheese, shredded

  8. 1 package egg roll or spring roll wrappers (about 20-25 wrappers)

  9. Oil for frying (vegetable, canola, peanut, etc.)

Optional additions:

  • Mushrooms

  • Jalapeños or banana peppers (for some kick)

  • Provolone cheese in addition to Cheez Whiz

To make the filling, sauté the onions, peppers and garlic in olive oil until the veggies are tender. Season with salt and pepper. Add the steak and cook, stirring frequently, until the steak is browned. Remove from heat and stir in the Cheez Whiz until melted and well combined. Let cool slightly before assembling the egg rolls.

Place a spoonful of the filling in the middle of each egg roll wrapper. Fold and seal the edges with a bit of water to form little purses. Fry in oil at 350 F until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Your cheesesteak-inspired egg rolls are ready to serve!

Step-by-Step Instructions for Making Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls

To make these irresistible Philly cheesesteak egg rolls, you’ll need a few ingredients and a little patience.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ribeye or sirloin, thinly sliced

  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 (15 oz) can beef broth

  • 1 cup shredded provolone cheese

  • 1 (1 lb) package egg roll or wonton wrappers

Instructions:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef, onion, green pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until the beef is browned.

  2. Add the broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.

  3. Place about 2 tablespoons of the beef mixture in the center of each egg roll wrapper. Fold one corner over the filling, then fold in the sides to seal, and continue rolling tightly to the remaining corner. Moisten the final corner with a little water to seal the roll.

  4. Heat 2 inches of frying oil in a deep pot or Dutch oven to 350 F. Fry the egg rolls in batches until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Serving Suggestions for Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls

Once your egg rolls are fried golden brown, it’s time to serve and enjoy them! Here are some suggestions to make a complete meal:

  • Pair your Philly cheesesteak egg rolls with a crisp salad or fresh cut fries. The crunchy veggies and starch help balance out the richness of the egg rolls.

  • Offer a variety of dipping sauces for guests to choose from. Ranch dressing, honey mustard, sweet chili sauce, and cheese sauce all make great options. The possibilities are endless!

-Round out your cheesesteak egg roll meal with a cold beer or creamy milkshake. There’s nothing quite like a frosty beverage to wash down hot, melty cheese and savory steak.

-Make it a cheesesteak egg roll hoagie or sub by stacking two or three egg rolls in a toasted roll and topping with your favorite hoagie fixings like lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise.

-For kids or those with smaller appetites, serve just one or two cheesesteak egg rolls on a plate with dipping sauce for a quick snack. The egg rolls also make a great appetizer for sharing at your next party or get-together.

-Leftover egg rolls can be reheated in the oven at 350 F until the filling is hot all the way through. You can also ask for extra egg rolls to go – they reheat well for up to 3 days after frying and are just as delicious.
