Additionally, here are some of the dipping sauces you can use on cheesesteak egg rolls;

  • Adding ketchup to a cheesesteak.

  • Cheez Whiz.
  • Ranch, which is believed to be a dip for every dish.
  • Taking a spice route of mayo, sriracha, and a mixture of fantastic hot peppers.

 Tools used in making Philly cheesesteak egg rolls

  • Oil thermometer: Philly cheesesteak egg rolls need hot oil at 350 degrees. You can cook everything inside the pot, but you need an excellent golden-brown exterior with some melty cheese inside.
  • Tongs: Most people use pigtail flippers for frying, but because making Philly cheesesteak egg rolls comes with filling to protect, you should be prepared with tongs. Using slotted spoons or spatulas is likely to cause oil burns if the egg rolls fall back to the pot.
  • Cooling rack: Don’t use napkins or paper towels because they will build up steam and cause half of the egg rolls to be soggy.
  • Cheez whiz: Of course, you need cheez whiz for dipping.

Ingredients

  • One pound of ground beef.
  • A half teaspoon salt.
  • Two teaspoons butter.
  • A half teaspoon pepper.
  • One teaspoon Worcestershire sauce.
  • One yellow onion.
  • A half green bell pepper.
  • Twelve American cheese (sliced).
  • 24 egg roll wrappers.
  • Bowl of water.
  • Canola oil.

Procedure

  • Start browning beef in the skillet. Please don’t break the meat too much while browning it. Try getting a nice brown sear, then break it as little as possible.
  • Add the salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce; stir gently and remove it from the pan.
  • Add the butter, chopped onions, and bell pepper to the pan and cook until browned and caramelized.
  • Once browned, add the meat back to the pan and stir gently until combined.
  • Prepare your egg roll wrappers and cheese as the mixture cools.
  • Lay wrappers on a flat surface and place half a slice of American cheese on each wrapper.
  • Add three teaspoons of the meat mixture on top of the cheese on the wrapper.
  • Pull the left corner over the meat and fold the two sides in.
  • Wet the edges of the wrappers and roll them tightly.
  • Set the pan on heat with canola oil; it would be best if you set it about an inch high.
  • Add 3-4 egg rolls in the oil at once. Fry them for about 3 to 4 minutes per side until golden brown, and the filling is heated through.
  • You can transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and continue warming in a 200 degrees oven.
  • Once they turn brown, you can take the egg rolls out of the oil and dry them on a cooling rack.
  • Repeat the procedure with the remaining egg rolls. Serve with the warm provolone cheese sauce on the side.

Takeaway Notes

  • Ensure the egg roll wrappers are covered when you are not using them, so they don’t dry out.
  • Do not crowd the pan because they may stick together or drop the temperature of the oil.
  • Do not cool on the napkins or paper towels because they will capture the steam under the egg rolls and cause sogginess.
