The Ingredients for Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls

The Equipment Needed

Marinate Your Steak

Start by combining all of your marinade ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Give it a good mix.

Umamiology-Philly-Cheesesteak-Egg-Rolls-ProcessShot1

Add in your shaved (and chopped) ribeye, and toss the meat until it is fully coated in the sauce. Cover the bowl and let the meat marinade for at least 1 hour.

Sauté Your Steak & Vegetables

Umamiology-Philly-Cheesesteak-Egg-Rolls-ProcessShot2

In your sauté pan, add in 1 teaspoon of olive oil and sauté your steak. Cook thoroughly, but do not overcook (should be done in approximately 3-5 minutes over high heat). When finished, remove from the pan and set aside.

In the same pan, add in all of your chopped vegetables and sauté them for approximately 3-4 minutes over high heat, or until they start to darken.

Then, remove the vegetables from the pan & combine all cooked ingredients (meat and vegetables) in your mixing bowl.

Filling & Wrapping Your Egg Rolls

Take a sheet of egg roll peel and position it in a diamond shape in front of you.

Apply a dab of egg wash to all sides of the wrapper, to help seal the egg roll.

Then add in a foundation of your Philly cheesesteak filling, topped with a layer the shredded provolone & mozzarella cheese. (Optional: add in a dab of cream cheese in this step.)

Start at the bottom corner and roll the egg roll wrapper over your filling until you have rolled your egg roll half way up. Then fold in each corner and then continue to roll up to the end.

Repeat until you have about 8-10 Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls – and then place them on a parchment paper or butcher paper lined tray.

Deep-Fry Your Egg Rolls

Prepare a stock pot of neutral oil, heated to 350°F.

Drop in 2-3 egg rolls into your hot oil – keeping in mind not to over crowd the pot.

Deep fry for about 3-4 minutes or until golden brown (flip once during the fry), then remove from the oil and let sit on a cooling wire rack for about 5 minutes.
